My house is getting all decorated up for the holiday. I feel like I have a pretty good start on it, but still need to do a couple of big things....like the trees. It's so fun to take out the things that I love to decorate with each year.
Like my collection of bulbs that I place around the house in baskets and amongst the greens.
I looooove sparkly stuff at Christmas...and things that look like ice and frost.
I love my little paper houses....pretty painted houses with their tarnished silver accents.....
And silly, happy snowmen.......
And the angels that I made with my Dad years ago.....
What are your favorite things about the house this time of year? I'd love to hear!
I have a fun project to share with you that I did for the Ally Scraps Blog. I downloaded patterns from the Victoria Magazine website to make these Vintage Village boxes.
The papers, mini pom pom trim, chipboard snowflakes, crystal topped stick pins and stickers can all be purchased from their store HERE.
You can go to the Ally Scraps Blog to get the complete list of supplies and directions, plus the link to the Victoria website for the templates for the houses. They'd love to have you stop on by.
So I also mentioned a GIVEAWAY in my title, so I want to let you know how to have a chance to win a bit of Christmas from me. Above I asked what are your favorite things around the house at Christmas time, so just tell me about that and you will be entered into the drawing to win.....................
the striped (pink, red, and blue) "Home for Christmas" Vintage Village House Box shown above! I'd love to share this with one of my blog readers. I hope that you'll enjoy it as much as I did making it. So go ahead and leave me your comment-- I can't wait to read them :-)
Thanks for stopping by! I plan to be back again in about a week to announce the winner of the Village House Box and to share another project or two. I've been making a few little clay pieces to add to projects so stop back when you can.
Have a wonderful winter weekend!
