I'm still going to play with the mantle a bit more, I can see by the photo that my candles aren't even and Mary and Joseph look a little like they may jump down to the hearth ~
Have you ever made these easy icicle ornaments? They are graduated sizes of clear beads and clear star shaped beads strung on a silver pipe cleaner. Just make a little ball at the bottom of your pipe cleaner, string on the beads smallest to largest so it tapers up and clip the pipe cleaner with wire cutters and fold over to make a loop for your ornament hook! Easy peasy ~
We are also working hard to get rooms switched to prepare for Brent and Emily's arrival next week.....I've not been in my art room much and I sure do miss it!!! A wonderful recipe my mom always makes at the holidays:
Pineapple Marshmallow Salad
- 1 bag of mini marshmallows
- 1 large can of crushed pineapple (not drained)
- 1 cup of flaked coconut
- 1 8 ounce carton of sour cream
Mix together and refrigerate for at least eight hours.
Stir before serving.

And who do I think is deserving of this award?? I must pass it on to YOU. You, who stop by my blog, who take the time to comment, who care what I'm up to, You inspire me....you are the one so deserving of this award of inspiration ~ Thank you so very much!
