December is here!

Hello everyone! 
So happy you are dropping by! 
I know I have been absent for too long but time has just got away on me... 
But here I am! 

I am just posting a few pics and will chat about them here. 
December has arrived and I am slowly getting the Christmas act together.  You know what they say about the best laid plans! Mine certainly did not happen but we are pottering away at it! 

Last month we did just the usual.
Working around home here, church,  shopping a bit and our usual drives.  Made some jams, vinegar and such for pantry gifts..

I am working on the fox needle felting for a gift for my sister.  It is to be a bag.  I hope she will like it.  

Do you like my green cupboard that Shonda painted for me? Love green! 

Those little cheesecloth bags are homemade mothballs.. 
Made from herbs from my garden this past summer.  
They smell lovely! 

One of our drives was gathering boughs and such.  Passed by a lovely farm with those dear sheep..  

I have baked a few Christmas cookies but haven't really started my baking yet! 
Made bread with a new bread pan.   It makes a nice long loaf with perfect size slices for sandwiches or toast. 
Terry picked me some rosehips that I dried for lotions.  
Used a few for the little mason jar votive.. 

The first pic with the orange peel words is from the web.  I hope to make it.   

What are you girls busy at? 
I can't get over so many having their homes decorated, shopping all done and everything! 
I am trying not to panic!
It will get done or not! Smile.  
We just want to enjoy it all with our precious family and church.  
So blessed to be able to do that.. 

Thank you dear hearts for being so patient with me.  
I am finding it easier to do a wee post on Instagram a couple times a week but I do love my blog and will continue to post here when I can. You can find me there.  (blessedhearth)

Praying your homes are bright and comforting during these stressful days! 
Lean on the Lord and remember that He careth for you!
That is what Christmas is all about. 
The love of God for his creation!   

Take care my sweet friends and will hopefully chat again soon!
So  Looking forward to your sweet notes..

  6. Another wonderful post, Faye. I love the green color on your cupboard. My craft room is a sage green and I find it so relaxing. I hope you post again but if life gets in the way, I wish you and Terry a wonderful Christmas season spent with your family and friends.

  7. Good to read your post, Faye! I have outdoor decor that I have posted on my blog. I like all your photos of things you have done and your house! I am working on my photos for calendars I send to friends. I ran out of 2 inks so I need to get them this week. I thought I had all I needed. Nope! That's what happens when I wait to finish my projects! Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year!!
