How was your Thanksgiving?  Ours was just wonderful!!!  The food was yummy and the company was great! AND there are still two more lovely days left of the weekend. Can’t beat that.

Today is a good day to share the rest of the decorating.

I found this great primitive looking candelabra at a thrift store for 4 dollars.  I was thinking do I really need anymore pine boughs? I already have a couple tubs full. But this one was just so nice I had to say YES!   I’m planning a full on purge of Christmas stuff and other decor I just don’t use anymore at a garage sale this spring ,so I didn’t feel too guilty.  Whatever doesn’t sell I’ll give to a thrift store,  really I am just helping the world recycle right? LOL

The kitchen got it’s very own white tree this year.

I made the little tree skirt out of some  felt I had in the sewing room and prepackaged felt snowflake stickers. Easy peasy.

Sparky the elf is living in the tree , that silly elf.

Really the only sewing projects I did this year were the sweater pillows and two new quilts. I needed something with more “primary” red than my current Christmas quilts.

Quilt number one is hanging in the piano room

And quilt number two is in the family room.

And some more thrifted white sweater pillows.

That pretty much concludes the decking of the halls.  Did you fall asleep?

Now it’s on to baking and shopping!!!

Fa la la la la, la la la la =)

    Oh my everything is stunning. I love all the repurposed items. I just need to make that red and white Irish chain quilt. Did you use a pattern? The saw with burlap bow is fantastic, I have a saw I could use but ‘mI sure it wouldn’t be as nice as yours.
