MERRY CHRISTMAS

I swore that I would never do this to one of my pets-and I promise you that this was only on his head for about 5 minutes- but when I saw these antlers I just couldn't resist- I mean....they match his fur, don't you think??!! Anyhow, Miko and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!!! The last picture shows just what Miko thought of the entire antler picture taking experience :) Hope your Christmas is magical and filled with laughter and love-and no one forcing you to wear antlers on your head ♥

Merry Christmas

I am almost finished with all of my Christmas projects- how are you doing?  I can't remember a year I have been so far behind- I think planning a bit earlier next year would be a very good idea.  I have my tree up and my house has been cleaned.  Most all of the presents are wrapped and I only have one more trip for the post office (I'm guessing those packages will be late).  Here's our tree this year, and a picture of some awesome ornaments sent to me from Nikki at Witch And Wizard Miniatures.  I love that little owl so much!!


I also decorated the flower shop and bakery dollhouse-here's a picture of the front window in the flower shop.  The santa and reindeer in the front window are Hallmark ornaments- I think they are the perfect size for a Christmas window display.

This was the only miniature work I have done all month long.  I sure do miss it.  I can't wait to get back to work on the candy house in the New Year.  Hope you have a good week and that your lists are almost finished too.  Merry Christmas to my blogging friends :)

Checking In :)

It's been awhile since my last blog post!  I've been a busy gal--I decided the only way I had any hope of catching up this year and getting things done was to just concentrate on my Christmas list for awhile.  My ornaments are almost all painted.  Here's a picture of some of them- I'll finally be able to start mailing next week.


I also make ornaments for my Mom and my siblings with pictures of my nieces and nephews on them.  Here is one- I've blurred the face a bit since this is my niece and I did not ask permission to use her face on the internet.  I have 6 nieces and nephews- so I paint 12 of these :)  I love painting these ornaments so much- something about their little faces on the ornament just makes me smile.

I've  been working on some homemade gifts for family and friends- I can't really show any of them because I don't want to spoil the surprise, but my hands have been flying!!!  I've been buying a few gifts on etsy this year too because I won't have enough time for everything I want to do.   Every single shop has been great service, great product and prompt shipping.  I can't show you my purchases just in case people I am gifting to are reading the blog- but if you are looking for wonderful, unique handcrafted gifts don't forget to visit Etsy- there are some terrific shops there!!

I'll leave you with some pictures of some of the snow we have recieved lately.  It covers the garden, so that makes me happy.  The flowers have a nice cozy blanket for the winter now.  Miko the Pomeranian LOVES the snow.  He would stay out there all day if I let him, but I make him come inside after a little bit so his tiny feet don't freeze.  I thought he would hate the snow and I would have to drag him outside to go to the bathroom all winter- but he sure fooled me!  He dives into the banks with his little snout and comes out just covered.  What a crazy dog!  Hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and if you are in the winter season where you live I hope you are staying warm and cozy :)
