Christmas Table and Homemade Ornaments

Thought I'd pop in and share a few photos from last Christmas. These were some of my Mom's ornaments and they are very precious to me.
 I did this simple tablescape for Christmas dinner. The letter ornies on each plate were made by me. I got the idea from Target last year. Everybody loved them.
 The tablecloth is fabric from Ikea last year. I also used it to make curtain panels.The candles you see all over Pinterest. Old sheet music on a dollar store candle. Add glitter and your good to go.
 Here's the progress on the boys Christmas ornaments for this year. I showed you the Seattle skyline in the works. It's all sewed-no I have to turn it into an ornament. The sackbut, don't laugh, is an early trombone. Youngest son is a trombone performance major and has played this instrument this year. I try to do some event, or something special from the last year. Also have to turn this into an ornament. I'll show you when I'm finished with them both.
Come back later this week to see my Christmas home tour. Can't wait!

  3. Hi Leslie, LOVE your tablescape in red and white. So very Swedish and gorgeous. The letters on the plates and the candles are awesome. Ikea has some great things for decor don't they? I just have to create some of those candles.
    Looks like the ornament is coming along beautiful. Love the stitch work.

  4. How wonderful to have the Christmas balls from your mother. I have a scale just like yours but it's all black with a copper or brass funnel! You're amazing with your little felt ornies you make! This is so special for your sons. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
