My little Christmas workshop ~


I thought I'd give you one more little peek at our tree this year ~
I place a 5' tree on top of a skirted table in our living room....and with the high ceilings
it works out so wonderfully! All I move is ONE lamp!





I have this beautiful Nativity statuary that I love and placed underneath this year...
Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus.
Perfect for the gifts, don't you think?





My sweet sister-in-law has ordered SEVERAL gifts from me so my little workshop
has KICKED it up a notch!!!

Here's a glimpse at what's going on around here....some are extras
because that's just how I roll :) (if I have to make one, why not make five?)
they will very soon end up in my Etsy shop too!
Stay tuned because time is running out!!!




I found the most beautiful craft paint to use on the bleached bottle brush trees!
Folk Art makes several different shades of metallics and this is Pearl White....
IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!





Yes, I know my sweet snowboy is looking kinda pearly and shiny but
you just wait, after a little glitter and the proper hat and scarf,
he will be ready to charm you!!!



Today...I am so very thankful for you!!!
Just for you simply taking the time to stop by here ~
to see what I'm up to.

Wishing you love,
wishing you health,
wishing you blessings....

Happy Wednesday precious friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

Love your tree and the Nativity! SO pretty! Have a blessed day dear Dawn, HUGS!

How sweet it all is. I love your tree on the table! And the thought of moving one lamp... HEAVEN! Our tree is 9 foot tall & takes up half the room in circumference. I told hubby it's out of here after this year. It's 15 years old & the lights are all going & it's huge... I want beautiful & simple just like you have. I'm going to steal a page out of your book girl! LOVE the snowman. HUGS!

Dear Dawn, As our family grows larger with each new addition, be it baby, girlfriends...our Christmas tree is getting smaller. Maybe a tabletop tree is the answer. Of course mine wouldn't have the Dawn touch, and girl you have it. Your little sculptures are adorable, I'd love to see you work with the paperclay. I hope you're feeling better and are able to enjoy this beautiful holiday Season. Take care. Love, Penny

I moved one lamp this year too, only it was a floor lamp and I put 3 small trees (different heights) into a large basket...looks great and only had to move one lamp!!! Your bottle brush tree is beautiful, thanks for the tip on the paint. And your little snowman is just ADORABLE...can't wait to see him finished!
Holiday Hugs,
Pendra
