Decking the halls!

We were busy around the farmhouse this past weekend ~
first having a family photo shoot here...out behind the barn!
All of my husband's family showed up and we took zillions
of photos ~ in hopes to get that perfect one of the entire group.
The weather was perfect!!

Our precious boys...all lined up at the photo shoot!

Noah and Clara finished decorating our tree...they did a wonderful job too!

I finished another bottle brush tree jar ~ but this one is different!
It features three sizes of little trees, each decorated and glittered....

This one has just been added to my Etsy shop too!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday dear friends...
hugs and love,

A great group of guys! When's Noah growing his beard? (My son just informed me to get ready because he's growing his beard starting today. Whatever! I don't have to kiss him. =) Apparently, my daughter-in-law loves a beard. Okie dokie. Does your hubby have a beard? My son's dad always wore one so I think it may have a strong influence.) The tree looks great! You have good helpers.

LOVE the photo of your boys all lined up! Nothing makes a Momma's heart pitter patter more than her "baby boy/s" And your bottle brush trees are soooooooooo cool. HUGS!

Great photo of the boys Dawn. Looks as if Christmas is most definitely alive and well in your home. Christmas tree looks lovely as do the jars. Hugs.

Great picture of your sons, Dawn! That's a great one to frame. Love your bottlebrush trees. I just tried doing my own this past week and it was so much fun just doing the little bit of decoration I did put on them. I want to do more now!

You & Your Guys are so Sweet, Love the photo, they sure do grow up so quickly.... Thanks for stopping by, I am having lots of fun creating, I have so many different figures in the making, I think I have a Santa with Chimney (cut & painted each brick) ready to put in My Etsy Shop On Wednesday, and also a couple of Angels, I am missing Not having a computer (can't afford a new one so it will be awhile) but the time that I have now is spent Sculpting~ Loving it, I sit all day long in my chair, working on an old enameled tray on the ottoman, even thou I just got a new antique work table, it right now is just holding Stuff... anyway, had to stop by to say Hi ~ talk soon

Cheryl ~ ZanyMayd said...

Hi honey,
I've been such a bad friend I haven't commented in two days! I love, love the pictures of Noah & Clara doing the tree. How precious is that, I'll bet she is INTO it this year, huh? You've been a busy girl, making up for your sick time. The books are great, sure they are gone already, is that purse for me????LOL And your massive bottle brush tree jar turned out amazing!

Marguerite (Tina) Smith Hart said...

Everything looks wonderful Dawn and wow what a gang of guys you have there! Dinner at your house must be amazing!
I still have to get myself in gear and do some decorating, it seems that there is always something I have to go do that drags me out of the house until after dark...sheesh, I need to put my foot down and stay home and get something done before the season is over!
Take care and have a great day!
Tina xo

Hi Dawn! I love the bottle brush trees in the jar- what a sweet idea and you finesse it to a tee!
I gotta say that is a handsome line-up of men there, great beards too! Looks like you had a crew for decorating. Just thinking I should hire a crew and get my house decked out. I'm wheelchair bound for 6 weeks! Now I'm inspired--maybe I'll get a jump on my holiday letters. Have a wonderful season!
