Christmas Around the House

Welcome to my home.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way . . .

If you were to visit me today, I would welcome you with a warm hug and a cup of hot chocolate.

From the moment you step across the threshold, you'll see trees and lights.
I have many trees sprinkled throughout, at least one in every room. Some rooms have more than one tree.

Here's an angel wishing you peace and offering you blessings of comfort and joy.
And there are lights all around, lots of lights.

Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing . . .

And another lighted tree in the entryway.

It's surrounded with Willow Tree figurines and red berries. They are simple forms that express the beauty of emotions and relationships, fitting for the season of celebrating love, family and friendships.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere we go . . .

We're still in the entryway.

Two carolers sing songs that will lighten your heart, and they dance with candles that light your path, reminding us of the season's ideas of hope, joy and faith.

Silent Night, Holy Night,
all is calm, all is bright . . .

Then I'd invite you to my studio, and we'd play for a while, and we'd chat and dream and create and speak of hope and possibilities . . . .

Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas season.

Schön weihnachtlich hast du es bei dir zu Hause gemacht.
Ich habe bei uns auch einiges geschmückt.
Ich liebe es, wenn es schön nach Tannen duftet und schön fertig gemacht ist.
Liebe Grüße Käte

Hi, Janet. Would love to spend time in the studio with you and watch over your shoulders. Merry Christmas.

Thanks, Melissa! Are you ready for Christmas? Is Emmitt? Give him a snuggle from Auntie Fannie. ;-D

Thanks, Vicki. Love all your new fabrics. Keep inspiring all of us.

Hey, Jacq. How's your sewing coming along? Finished those bears and Christmas projects? You're very productive. My special pincushion has a special place near my sewing machine. ;-D
