Welcome...

come on in.
the house is FINALLY decorated

shawn and gavin got the lights hung
i am loving my front porch.
it's perfect for quilts, candles and everything else i can find!

here's a little peak into the entry






and while your waiting to see the rest
why not make some snowmen in a jar
all you need is a 1/2 pint mason jar, some "snow" flakes
3 small black buttons and a carrot nose {made from the ends of toothpicks and painted orange}
i sewed the buttons onto a small tag and glued the nose on to it

i cut black hats from wool felt and added some twigs from an outside tree for his arms.
place it all in the jar, tie it up with ribbon and more greenery and add a tag.
{i bought my tags at staples and soaked them in instant coffee then dried them in a warm oven}
perfect.
when your done with your snowmen, i'll take you on a small tour.
