~*Happy New Year!!*~

Happy New Year to everyone! May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions!!

~*Antler Feeder*~

My son Tommy made this feeder for me for Christmas. He went in our woods and found an old fence post. I love how he used the shed deer antlers for perches. He filled the holes with suet and nailed ears of corn on the post. It is hung on a sheppard's hook.

~*New Patterns*~

I was visiting some of my favorite websites and found out that Need'l Love came out with a new booklet. I ordered it last night from and can't wait to get it. The Need'l Love website didn't have the new booklet on the website yet.

~*Christmas Surprise*~

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas!! I did, considering Tom stabbed himself in the leg and we ended up in the ER. He could of hit the artery, thank goodness he didn't. Tom was opening up plastic packaging with his new pocket knife and slipped. Anyways, he's ok just very sore now.
We are going on a cruise next November. I don't know which ship we are going to be on yet because we haven't gotten the info.. So far I know we have to fly to Puerto Rico to get on the ship. Tom has never been on a cruise and always refused to go. I know he will love the food. I went on a Royal Caribbean Cruise a couple years ago. We stopped at Haiti, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. My sister Rena and my daughter Lindsay shared a room. We had a GREAT time!!

~*Merry Christmas*~

Merry Christmas!! I had a very busy Christmas Eve. We drove to Marblehead to have Christmas with Tom's family and it went very well. However, after we got home Tom had a mishap with the new pocket knife he received as a gift. He ended up in the ER. We got him back home and he is on the mend but, we didn't get to go to my mom's because we didn't want to disturb the stitches. My kids went to mom and dad's without Tom and I. Hope everyone had a nice Christmas!!

~*Frosty and Friends*~

I have been collecting Cody Foster snowmen for a few years. I displayed some of them on our antique organ. As you can see I have an eclectic style. I love primitive but, I do have some Victorian pieces too. It's hard for me to choose. LOL!

This year I decorated our fireplace mantle with some Cody Foster snowmen and big rusty bells.
Christmas is coming fast, I'm ready this year though. Last year I started my Christmas shopping Dec. 20. I made a promise to myself that I would never do that again!!

~* Oh! Christmas Tree~ Oh! Christmas Tree*~

I finally have gotten our Christmas decorations done. My son cut our tree down on our farm. We had planted Blue Spruce tree a few years ago. We have 10 Ft. ceilings and our Christmas tree nearly touches the ceiling.
I about have my shopping all done except for buying stocking stuffers. Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season!!
For some reason my whole post got deleted. I really appreciate all your nice comments and did read them before they mysteriously vanished. LOL!

~*One Of My Favorite Things*~

I love this advent box with a feather tree. My friend Chris bought it for me for Christmas last year. It is one of my favorite things.
