Dressing Up for Christmas

I've lived with dogs all my life.  Two Boxers (at the same time), a Great Dane, a Doberman, a German Sheppard/Cocker Spaniel mix, a Cocker Spaniel, and now Twyla.  Never before, with any of our other dogs, have I been so ridiculous...
 
 
But I just cannot help myself!
 
 
Ooooh how I love this Beagle!

Merry & Bright {Christmas Decor}

A peak into our bedecked home...
 
In the kitchen, I found a small, rustic looking tree and put it into one of my old watering cans:
 
 
In the space between the kitchen and living room, I've set up my "forest" of mercury glass trees:
 
 
 
 
In the family room, atop our vintage radio cabinet (converted into a bar/see previous post here), stands the elf-ish musicians:
 
 
My flea market find, brass deer head on our gallery wall now sports a colorful wreath:
 
 
 
And in one of the side chairs sits a pillow I made from a vintage 1950s tablecloth:
 
 
Merry & bright indeed!

Flocked Christmas Tree

 
We bought a new Christmas tree.  Something much smaller which I like.  I love the old-fashioned flocking too!
 
A closer glimpse of some of my favorite ornaments...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I've checked my list and think I'm finished shopping.
 
 
Now to get wrapping!

Elsa Apron Update

Remember the Elsa apron I made for my niece's 5th birthday (prior post here)?
 
 
She loves it!
 
 
Almost as much as I love her!

Audrey Hepburn Apron

"Did I tell you how divinely and utterly happy I am?" ~ Holly Golightly
 
This line from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" immediately came to mind when I found this fabric!
 
 
Of course I had to use it to make a Retro Revival apron.
 

Tres distinque!
