FRIENDLY Decor Part 2

Today, I'm sharing Rebecca's sweet Christmas feather tree.  I love how she combined the vintage glass ornaments with my wood and clay pieces.  Fun to see who has what ornaments and it's great that they are being enjoyed!   

Two snowmen who now reside with Rebecca's family.  I think these were from two or three years ago???   
Thanks Rebecca for sharing and sending your photos! 

This little gem is from Robert Brawley.  He's a fellow artist, so leave it to that artistic mind to display the ornaments among beautiful poinsettia plants.  Love those ceramic planters too!

Thank you Anne for sharing photos of your tree with my Christmas ornaments.  It's always nice to recollect the ornaments that were created in the past.  You forget over the years and I love to see how people decorate with them.  I was hoping to make more of these ornaments, but the neuropathy in my hands is preventing any work this week.  

Doesn't Anne's home look inviting and festive?  The beautiful tree in the background, the cute pillow on the bench, I bet the whole house is decked out!

Another view of the table top tree and another large Christmas tree in the background!

Last view of the same tree.  Thank you so much Anne for taking the time to take the photos and send them.  I spy the "Cole" ornament and had forgotten that you had that one.  I'll send you the real one for Christmas, especially with those raging teenage hormones right now!

I will share some more photos from other collectors, so take a peek in the coming days :)

North Pole Delivery

I really like this Christmas display idea.  It can be made inexpensively with recycled pallet wood and the large globe lights really highlight the contents of the box.  See more at The Idea Room.

In the Morning

 And these are the gifts we keep 
And this is the morning that we breathe 
And then we see 
These moments are the only gifts we need

If you get an opportunity to see Jack Johnson live, run, don't walk to get your tickets.  He is incredibly good in concert.

This is a Pinterest find from The Lovely Drawer.  Very simple, yet pretty clay Christmas ornaments.  This would be a good project for an older child.
