Good Evening everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth tonight..
As you can see we have a bit of snow here in New Brunswick..
A very heavy wet snow and the trees are gorgeous ...
Thankfully, the hydro has stayed on and I have been working on house work and a few projects I thought you might like to see.. smile..
This is the little curtain I was telling you about..
I see one of the santa hats is not pulled tight..
Oh well, too late to fix it now.. grin..
My friend, Dawn found a pin on Pinterest that inspired our imaginations and this is what we came up with..
Just a hole in each side of the santa hats and the curtain rod poked through..
I have santas in my kitchen but the rest of the house is basically nativities and old fashioned Christmas decor..
I don't like him having first place but one room is fine..
Happy medium to everything, eh?
The santa hugging the candle in the middle of the sill used to look like this...
But after cutting off all of that fake fur and replacing it with sheep's wool...
He turned out a bit more vintage, shall we say? smile..
The red hats make the kitchen so cozy at night..
Terry took me for a lovely drive a couple of weeks ago to a wonderful open house near P. E. I..
Her name is Gael and she makes wonderful crafts...
Her shop is full of antiques and vintage Christmas decor..
She is a darling and I totally enjoyed myself..
My husband is a dear to sit in the car and wait for me.. smile..
I found several Christmas gifts and I will try to get a few pics of them to show you soon..
Lots of wonderful gift ideas..
This was looking out our living room windows today..
I worked on the birch bunting and finished it..
It is all strung but too dark to take a pic of it tonight..
I did make this wee joy one for the guest bath..
I found these copper pieces at a thrift store and Terry polished them all up..
I am trying to fit some more copper pieces into my kitchen..
This is pinned on my Kitchens Pinterest board.
I just love it and think after Christmas I am going to try and get the same feel here..
What do you all think?
January inspirations, eh?
I have a project for tomorrow for the basin as a centrepiece..
How are you ladies doing with all your preps for the big day?
I need to get at my cooking.. I am so slow..
What baking item do your family want you to be sure to make?
Mine always want ice cream cake for dessert and cookies and fudge.. Oh... and cherry cheese squares..
A sweet girl in our church gave me a recipe for Caramel Fudge..
I would like to make it for gifts as it was delicious..
Anyway, dear hearts this is all for tonight..
Thank you so much for the phone calls for my birthday and all of your dear comments..
Appreciate you sweet ladies..
