Middle... too bad I don't know how to line these up
Some new ornaments I made this year....
Dried orange slices look like stained glass with alittle light behind them. (shown with my favorite hanging icicles to the left of them)
Cinnamon logs tied with flannel ribbons.
This next is an embroidered wreath made by the youngest as a home-school project when she was about 11.
a beeswax angel we used to make when we had our honey and beeswax candle business. I still have my supplies and have plans to be making more... They smell soooo good! Just a hint of honey smell
A bee-keeper ornament made by my SIL , the year was 1990
A primitive wax star (don't remember where we got this one)
a cross-stiched nativity (I LOVE this one .... so dainty)
The Christmas goose (we used to have geese... one got stuck in 2' of snow and I had too wade out to get her and carry her back... wore me out at age 40 or so!)
A cross-stitched bulb, made by my sister if I remember right
Lots of wooden toy onraments from when youngest was little.
there are others I didnt get unpacked this year, and some I sent on to the older children that I had made after the fire when they were little (thats another story).
But I think this is enough. I am a believer in balance in everything , because I tend to get overwhelmed and discontent if it isn't. The important thing to me is that even though Christ wasn't born on the actual Christmas day, we celebrate His birthday at this time. and God sent his Son into this world to give His life for us, and I for one am so grateful, because I am such a brat, I really needed a Saviour. Yes, so glad......
and now I have to get my house cleaned!!! and finish knitting that hat!!! Have a blessed day, y'all!!
