Hi I am so glad you dropped by. Come on in. I have been sewing for a while and I need a break, so your timing is perfect. This is our front door and front entry hall. I made the quilt on the wall. I'll show it up close some other time. You must stay for tea because look what I bought. I think it is such a whimsical shape. Kind of makes me think of the mad hatter's tea party in Alice in Wonderland. Here is a picture of the whole set and then just the teapot. It's not only great for Christmas because of the red, but I can use it all year round. The test of a teapot is how well it pours without dripping . So when we have our tea we can see if it's a good one or not.
I told you it was cute!!
I have done most of the house in traditional bright reds and greens, but the self portait of Peter Paul Rubens in our living room is just too serious for that so I gave him some simple greenery mixed in with some of my brass candlestick collection. I think he approves as he looks down at it. What do you think?
And this little gold metallic angel which came from a yard sale is our angel heralding the birth of God's son for all the world to hear.
How was your weekend? I finished decorating the house, helped our daughter paint her bedroom a really sassy pink , watched one of the totally predictable but heartwarming Hallmark movies that seem to be on every night this time of year, and went to church. We go to the most amazing church, but that is a story for another day.
Thanks again for stopping by. Sorry we can't visit longer today but I am determined to plug a way at the machine quilting, so I better get back to it. I would love for you to leave a comment. I like to think of it as a guest book and when you come to visit you can leave me a short note just to remind me of the nice time we had together.
