He couldn't climb the real Christmas tree due to its denseness (even though he tried about a billion times) He was SO excited when I set up the artificial tree in the kitchen. Without hesitation he was up that thing so fast. I think I had it set up about 30 seconds !! Needless to say...a little spray with the water bottle and he hasn't tried it again.
I just wanted to share with you my last hurrah of the season. I had a great time making this special order Santa and Winter Girl.
My favorite part is the trim on her pantaloons. I hand gathered silk ribbon to make a wonderful ruffle and then stitched it onto the hem of her pants.
Now I'm just playing a little catch up here. A while back I participated in a trunk show at Cottage Jewel in Danville. Iva Wilcox and Charlene Geiger joined in the fun.
(currently, Charlene does not have a blog or website)
Iva's lamp...which is too too wonderful. The outside is covered in a combination of glitters and mica. This picture does not do it justice.
And some of the type of treasures you will see if you visit Cottage Jewel.
If you have a chance...stop by and visit Marcia at
