Merry Merry Miscellany!
Winter Fairy Gardens...
Christmas Deer and Other Woodland Creatures.
I'm still having a lot of fun creating little winter "Fairy Garden" scenes for Christmas. Several of them will be given away as gifts. No matter how much I love them, I cannot keep them all. This post will be mostly pictures...so I can finally get them blogged. I am fortunate that my shopping is done for the most part. Just have a few miscellaneous things to get.
Today I am making Peppermint Snickerdoodles with white chocolate peppermint kisses on top. I may have to make them twice...they are so yummy! They remind me of some cookies my mom made for me to take to a Christmas party when I was in Jr. High. I never tasted anything so good as those Snickerdoodles with a dab of pink icing and a little candy cane on top...a priceless memory for me. It makes me happy to think of my mom today. I sure miss her...especially at Christmas.
This one is a favorite.
I love the rusty bucket and the tree full of bells and a rusty star.
The tiny deer is a salt shaker from Cracker Barrel.
I bought over a dozen little deer and owls to use for crafting.
A gift for a friend...rusty coffee can from Oatman, AZ.
I made 10 of these for gifts.
The cans were saved from Costco Chicken.
We had a lot of enchiladas this fall...lol!
A gift for one of my daughters...little Yellowstone Bears.
I re-did this wagon scene I made last year.
I like using Snow Tex over sheet moss.
Looks more realistic...snow-wise.
Pioneer Woman Christmas Cow Creamer.
Pedestal from Target...cute!!
Tiny Gingerbread Houses.
Just 1.5" tall...the candies are Wilton candy sprinkles
Jack Frost joins the hall decor...
...along with Dri-Shu Santa.
The Cookie Kings found a home in the kitchen.
Pinterest-Inspired Three Tier Display.
Nicholas and Christ Child...
This is one of my favorite images this season...St. Nicholas and the Christ Child.
It reminds me of the book..."The Immortal Nicholas" by Glenn Beck.
I have it framed in my office to remind me of the reason we celebrate this time of year.
I just printed it 5" by 7" and used my coupon at Hobby Lobby for the frame.
That's it for now...
