I painted a quick ornament for a family member who needed one for a Dirty Santa swap.  I think he turned out really cute.

(I edited the the picture to give it the snow effect.)

The Christmas decorating has begun.  I'm actually early this year, but thought maybe I could get a head start on things and not be so rushed.  This picture is taken in the sun room.  It is the top of an antique buffet and I decided to to a grouping of Santa's.  I think it turned out kind of cute.

I love seasonal flags. They are so colorful and fun to watch blowing in the wind. The area we moved to is very breezy. We are not sure why; maybe because there are not many trees or because of our close proximity to the Tennessee River. Whatever the reason, it is a great area for flags!

The last few days have been very productive. Husband took a couple of days off to install more shelving in our closets.

Here is a picture of my Christmas closet in one of the spare bedrooms. No, this is not all of my Christmas decorations. These are the ones I don't want stored in the garage to get too hot or cold. Now that there is extra shelving in the closet, I was able to get a lot of the boxes up off of the floor.

I even had some time to work on one of my decorative painting projects. I think it has turned out really cute. I had to improvise some on this one. I didn't have the exact sled the project called for, so I had to adjust the pattern somewhat. Here's a picture.

Thanks for looking,

Cool, Rainy Day

Today has been a cool, rainy day in North Alabama. I did a few things around the house that needed to be done. I couldn't decide if it was a day for cross stitching or for painting. For those who don't know, I do some decorative painting. Nothing large, nothing fancy. I had already started a wooden sled that has mittens and holly on it. Of course, I always have a cross stitch project or projects, I should say, going. I decided to paint. I have almost completed the sled so maybe I can post a picture in the next day or so.
