Sunday Evening...

Good Sunday evening, everyone!
 
I just wanted to check in and show you the finished "Ellie" ornament!
 
First, here is Ellie...

And here is her ornament...her human's ornament, actually!

I've been so busy I haven't actually decorated like I had planned, so here
 
are some of Mr. B.'s arrangements...
 
A little group of fellows on my sideboard...
 
Two Ino Schaller belsnickles, and a piece of original art by
 
Virginia Betourne, of Trout Creek Folk Art.
 
"Snowboy Goes to the Sauna" (see his little towel?) ~
 
Such fun!

And, a sweet little nest of vintage ornaments,
 
in a pressed-glass bowl that was my Mom's.
 
I think Mr. B. did well!
 
More tomorrow....
 
Oh, the Fairy House is on it's way to a new home,
 
and I'm getting ready to start another for a Fairy-loving little girl in Boston!
 
Have a great Monday!
 
Two whole weeks until Christmas!

  19. Ellie's peeps are going to be so pleased. I love the bowl of vintage ornaments. I have several ornaments my parents brought back from Germany. I love using them on my own tree. I have retired only the Santa. I so afraid he will fall. He has a special place now. Have a grand week. Bonnie

  22. Beautiful photos - the one looks like peering into a snowball ... saw one on a show the other day - made me miss having one - loved to shake it up and see the snow fall.
    Those vintage ornaments are beautiful and the photos all so tastefully and vintage-style ...
    bu Ellie - oh she's a sweetie. Give her hugs from me! Love her ornament and the 2012 one too.

    I'm switching to RSS feed instead of email for your blog. Just cleaning out readers and email and all that.

    Thanks!
    Great 'nother header photo too! Amazing what the typewriter and cat can do!
