Christmas Mantel!

I really wanted to do something new & fresh for my mantel so with a few decoupage letters and some cheap wrapping paper I have a new look. What do you think? If only my IPhone could capture my fun blinking lights. Christmas time is upon us!! Noel! ;)

Time for Tea?? Lily's Tea Party Birthday!

Lily had a fantastic tea party! We've all seen the Princess tea parties and the Alice in Wonderland teas but I wanted a formal tea. Girls in pretty floral dresses and boys in ties. I bought bonnets & top hats and Lily (and me too!) had white gloves. We went all out!  Sipping real tea out of real china. I'm so lucky that my Mom has saved so many china sets that were her Moms and her Mom's Mom, etc. so I had some beautiful pieces to decorate with and use. Of course I had to add some bright colors to make it 4 year appropriate. With scones and mini muffins, chocolate dipped sugar wafers and age appropriate finger foods like pepperoni rolls, all the kids had a great time! Here are some of my decorations, thanks to the fabulous Sara Buskirk for being my photographer. Someone needs to push her to start a business!

Craft Fairs make me crafty!

I had so much fun at First United Methodist's Gift Alley this morning that it made me come home & feel like being crafty so I whipped out the sewing machine to conquer a few projects. I've been meaning to make an election dress for Lily for months but I finally got it done, like 4 days to spare. Haa. I forgot how relaxing it is to sew. It is definitely a stress release, maybe I need to get it out more often!! It had been so long since I made a dress that I had to remind myself a little bit. That's bad. I might have to give up sleep so I have more time. Ha.
