It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

Today I got in the spirit a little early by decorating a little tree for my space.

It wasn't too hard to get in the mood for holiday decorating when our Blue Mountains looked lie this first thing this morning..

I made a few of these little ornaments using a small embroidery hoop, some great sheer wired ribbon I found at WalMart last year and an image transfer of, what else, a cardinal!

and here's some of the sand dollar ornaments I made...
I got a whole jar of sand dollars as part of an auction lot several months ago and knew I would find something to craft with them.

So this is what I came up with....

here's the little tree...I'm fortunate because the store owner put up a gorgeous big tress right next to my space that is covered with beautiful vintage ornaments. You gotta love this--she found the gorgeous tree at a yard sale. It's truly beautiful and rivals my own tree that I use at home.

I wanted to give Marcella (my dress form) a little holiday "glow". She got wings and a halo today. Doesn't she look sweet?

Here's the display of the village houses I bought at aucltion last week..

I did something I haven't done in years....I strung popcorn and cranberries for this little tree. Heck--the colors just worked perfectly with the cardinal theme...

I do love the homemade look of these reminds me of sitting on the floor and stringing with my oldest when he was 3 or 4 years old.

How I enjoyed decorating the space for Christmas for the first time...


  1. Cori, Your booth space looks so pretty and festive. Like cardinals and the old fashioned popcorn and cranberry garland on the tree. I can remember making a garland like that the first year we were married. It was such a sweet, country tree. :-) I am starting to get into the decorating mood and will start setting up soon. It takes so long to get it all up but the sooner I do it, the longer I can enjoy it. Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday.
