Okay, I know this is mean. You can sing the title of the post to the tune of Clementine. See, now it's going to be stuck in your head all day.
I have been busy working on goodies for the one and only show I am doing this year. A little hometown bazaar in Athena, Oregon, December 8th.
I have been making several types of garland. The raggedy one looks so comforting on the tree or in greenery.
The pine cones add a bit of a rustic or natural look.
And then there is the rose hip garland. I just love it. I have considered keeping it (so selfish I know.) I probably won't, but it is my favorite. Rose hips dry up so neat that next year, even though they will have a little different look, they will still be beautiful.
I am taking the week between Thanksgiving and December first as a week of peace. I mean in the house. I have all the autumn decor back in the totes and put away, and I'm not bringing out the Christmas decor until next weekend. I have moved furniture and cleaned in preparation for a tree and all the fixins, but I am just enjoying the clean.
Don't worry, I will have three trees in the house by Christmas. I will show you those in due time.
More to come,
Until next time

PS. In case you were wondering, I have 256 of the 396 Cathedral Window blocks ironed and secured with a little bead which will embellish the corners where each of those 396 blocks meet.
