February’s Coming…

I guess it is safe to say, I have become a part time blogger!  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything!  Life just keeps happening and the days just keep getting away from me!  I decided I better get my hearts out and enjoy them before February comes and goes. I found this neat old ceiling tile and thought I would use it as a magnet board. I’ve had fun playing around with it and have been thinking about making some magnets from some old keys or game pieces or just anything unusual.  I’ve seen a lot of neat ideas on Pinterest.  What did we do without Pinterest?!

Lucky Me!

 

I was thrilled beyond words when I found out I had won Jenn’s giveaway over at Rabbit Hill Primitives!  Couldn’t wait to tear into the package when it arrived but the paper was so pretty, I just wanted to admire it for awhile!

Isn’t he an adorable table top Santa with a sweet little tree?!  I just love him!

I think I am going to have to leave him out and enjoy him for awhile before I put him away! Thank you Jenn!

Pinterest Idea

Here’s a fun and easy idea from Pinterest.  Winter snow scenes . This first one I made using a glass cloche.  I already had the little trees and the snow.  I used cotton for the base as it covers up the battery for the street light, and then sprinkled fake snow on top.  The little street light I bought at Walmart from their Christmas village d├ęcor.  It was so fun to do and the possibilities are endless as to the different scenes you could make.

AND…while at Walmart I found this container that looks like glass but it’s actually plastic for $7.97!  Yay!  AND… you can leave these “winter” scenes out after Christmas.

Now go forth and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!  Smile

Christmas Decorating

Did a little decorating.  Again, not knowing how Jasper was going to deal with the tree, I just put some snowflakes on and no swinging ornaments.

Turns out, he just loves to lay under the tree…

and look up at the lights!

Of course I had to have some gingerbread men!

Although he seems to be doing ok with the tree, I did notice “someone” had messed with the stockings!

Jasper 1, Fairy Garden 0

 

We had a small gathering at my friend Angi’s house the other night and she showed us how to make a fairy garden.  As I was making mine, I was wondering what Jasper was going to think of it.

Well sure enough he had to check it out and didn’t want to leave it alone.  I had to hide it during the day while at work and then I would set it out when I got home.  The other day he decided to bite off the taller plant so I knew I was going to have to do something.

I remembered I had this glass cylinder so I transplanted the garden into a bowl that would fit inside the cylinder, so far so good!

They are fun to make and there are endless possibilities of how you could make them but I’m thinking if I do any more, they will have to be outside ones.

My First Burlap Wreath

 

I had the day off today so I decided I would make my burlap wreath.  I had bought the materials several weeks ago and wanted to give it a try.  I have to say it was really easy and lots of fun!!  I just wired the decorations on so I can easily change it out for the seasons!  I’m ready to make another one!
