Old Christmas Sled...

If you have and old sled like this one...

add some greenery, pine cones, ribbon and a bell and you get an outdoor decoration like this one...
I love the country look. This is great leaned up against the house as a sweet decoration for Christmas. Now it would look much better if it snowed!

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Favor



With Thanksgiving only a few days away, I had to make a little something to give to my son's teachers. This is so cute and easy! It would be a great little gift for a teacher or bus driver and would look nice at your Thanksgiving table as a favor.
Simple supplies: orange slices, plastic wrap, brown floral tape and a leaf with wire stem.
Tear off a piece of plastic wrap and place 7 slices in the center. You'll need to hold them in your hand as you do this like a ball. Wrap the plastic up aroung the slices and twist at the top. Wrap brown floral tape around the plastic stem and twist at the top. Wrap leaf around stem and twist, Leave the end of the wire to wrap around a pencil to form curly q. That's it!
Add a tag if you like. Mine says : Give thanks to the Lord( Sorry for the blurry pic)

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! I thank the Lord for all his goodness. What are you Thankful for? And Who are you thanking?

Happy Easter...



Well I haven't blogged in such a long time. It's been a long and dreary winter here in Ohio. I really think I have that condition where if you don't get enough sunlight you get depressed, oh yes SAD - seasonal affective disorder! That's me, give me a sunny day and I can conquer the world but 4 months of cold darkness and I'm a major couch potatoe. Well I'm Back! We had a beautiful warm sunny day here yesterday and today is Easter and the flowers are in bloom. He is Risen Indeed!
Happy Easter to everyone! I hope to be posting more soon.
