Good Time was had by All!

December started out with a BANG, loads of snow and some Holiday makes.
 Snow is the perfect setting for all the little birdies made from this tutorial.
 So much fun. So easy and fast.  Hardest part was picking out the button embellishments!
I had my mom for Secret Santa. Easy peasy!:)
 The boy had a great time visiting his sister in Oxford...brought back these adorable mugs and...
 ....loads of the girl's stuff.  Two whole suitcases full!!  Countdown has begun for her return on February 1st then she can put all this stuff away!! Yipeeee!
 My guys surprised me with this Holly tree...that we have named Chookie!:)  Tomorrow it goes outside to be planted in the front yard.
Christmas day at my folks...good company and food! 
 Next day more good food and laughter at the in-laws'.
A new face has joined the extended family.  Bro-in-law's new pup Findley....welcome!!:)

Third Christmas was today at our house....hubby, the boy and his girl and me.  There is a new Kindle HD Fire and Roku in the house...we are on technology and candy overload!:)

Happy, Happy!!!


  1. Love your flock of birdies, and your appropriately named tree :oD

  2. Sounds like you had a great time! Hope the girl gets home ok in feb, how many suitcases to go? Lol.

  3. Ha haaaa!!! I bet my Chookie grows faster than yours! *g* I wondered when the girl came home, I knew it was soon. Your makes, as always, are beautiful.

  4. Sounds like a good Christmas was had by all! And that lunch with your family looks something more like we'd have in Oz for Christmas if we decide a big old roast is too much to handle on a 90F day!
    Wishing you a happy New Year and he girls safe home from her travels :-) (but don't be surprised if this has just whetted her whistle for travel)

  5. I love the birds in the tree with the snow. It seems like a lovely Christmas !

  6. We love our taco birds. I especially love the buttons, and ribbons and lace tail feathers. They are so cute.

  7. Did you really decorate that outside tree with your lovely little birds? Won't they get wet in the snow??? I also love your Holly tree (and her name) you will be able to decorate that in the coming years..... as if you haven't enough to do.

    Your girl will soon be home Yeah! but will she be putting the 'stuff' away.....I don't think so....

    Happy New Year to you all x x

  8. Love the birds in the tree with the snow. Feels like Christmas time. I miss you DeeRoo! Happy New year and sending you lots of love.

  9. I did not know about the puppy! Did the older dogs appreciate his cuteness? The tree of birds is great!
