It seems that the past few years life has just gotten in the way of my blog this time of year. This year my daughter in law was ill. It took the doctors several weeks to figure out that her gallbladder had problems, then the surgery, then the recovery. So during all this time I had my grand babies. Taking on a 14 month old when you have MS is an ENORMOUS undertaking! Sitting at the computer while watching him was mission impossible! Although his brother who is 5 helped a lot, by time I got him in bed at night I would just collapse. Then to top that off hubby has kidney stones and was on the couch for several weeks too.... no help there...lol.
Once the boys went home, I had Christmas staring me in the face. I usually have the decorations up and the gifts bought by the day after Thanksgiving. This year we skipped Thanksgiving and I was still doing some shopping the day before my big Christmas eve party. So I thought I would share some pictures of our holiday decor and the little graphic for my ornaments. I know it is too late for this year but maybe you can save them for next year :)
I thought they looked nice even empty!
The topiary was dressed in gold this year.
And my daughter in law did a lovely job decorating the chandelier.
We hung glitter snowflakes from the ceiling as we always do. This picture really doesn't do them justice. They spin and twinkle with every movement and it just sets such a holiday mood.
I even changed the display in my glass cloche for the season.
Well there you have it :))
Here are the graphics for the little ornaments. I used a free pattern from the internet and made the steeple to fit. I have included my copyright because of the background papers are mine. Your more than welcome to make and sell as many as you can make but please don't sell the graphic :) Just click on the little images below to go to the larger printable. If you link to this graphic, Please link to the post and not directly to the image itself... Thanks so much and enjoy!
