Christmas Crafts and Decor

Time is limited folks! I am smack in the middle of pre-Christmas-Sunday-Family-Holiday-Programming!!! But I wanted to share some of my Christmas Crafts and Decor with you!!!grape vine star

I was going to do this with driftwood, but I didn’t get a chance to scour the beaches yet for my driftwood stockpile, so I used some dried grape vine I had from an old arrangement. Jeff claims it’s a little Blair-Witchy, but I say Christmas Star all the way!

Next, I found THIS on pinterest, and had to give it a go. People always scoff when I say I save my corks to someday make a project, but to all those scoffers: how do ya like ‘dem wreathes!?cork wreath

I was going to document making this as a buoy bird craft, but the camera settings were all wonky and even after photoshop lightening the pics were STILL this dark!

Eh, no biggie, instructions here! :)

Next was one of my favorite 2011 decorations. I found the most BEAUTIFUL hand cut paper snowflakes that my ridiculously talented friend Joanna made me a few years back, and I always wanted a special way to display them.

These babies deserved to be in a giant frame (found roadside in ol’ TO years ago)!

Some 1/2 off flowers for a cheery Christmas arrangement, a Tree, and I dare say we are ready for Christmas around these parts!

spring ahead!

Oh, I sprung. And Mother Nature and all her time constraints have left me a sleepy gal this lazy Sunday.

However, Sunday flowers are a simple pleasure, enjoyable even in my hazy state. So without further ado…big jar o flowers

It’s like spring in a vase! Goodbye gray, dreary winter!daisy closeupbird upclose

And birds! They are singing! Ms. Nature, I’ll gladly give you your hour if you give me birds and flowers.birds eye viewcuddle birdmilk glass vase

So not much needs to be said when flowers are involved. And thank goodness; I don’t have it in me!

However it can be said that I *miiight* just be developing an addiction to white ceramic birds.bird collectionbird collection two

Just maybe. ;)
