around the house.....

Here's a few funky iphone shots of Christmas around my house. We're having lots of fun being festive these days! This morning we had gingerbread waffles with freshly squeezed orange juice. (Bountiful baskets were very bountiful with their oranges this morning, and I already had a box in the pantry from the grocery store......yum!)

Making snowflakes was one of our advent days.....
This is my sweet little Rauchermann from my Grandma and Grandpa's. They lived in Germany years ago and I always loved their german Christmas decorations, especially their Weihnachtspyramide.......so pretty!
My nativity......I bought this at a Christmas market in Innsbruck years ago.
And of course you've seen my tree.....
And this is one of the things the elves in my sewing workshop have been making late at night! It's too bad I don't have a little troop of elves to work for me actually, it would save my poor fingers! (I've had a lot of needle mishaps lately.) Lately I've been feeling like I work in a little doll clothes sweatshop, I have assembly line piles of little clothes to make! But actually, I've been loving it. I'm especially in love with a certain little doll who has been coming to life in my hands this week......last night he got his final stitches of hair. I can't wait to share, but I think that will have to wait until after he's been revealed on Christmas morning!

Oh how fun!!! I remember back to the time when my kids were small and I would sew late at night to make projects for my kids for Christmas. You bring back so many happy memories. Love ya!! I can't wait to see the other things you have made.
