Decking the Halls

We had a really nice Thanksgiving. I hope you did too. Before I get to Christmas I want to share the last of my morning glory before it gets cold. You're probably sick of seeing this, but I am so in love with this. I started in the spring with seeds. I germinated them in a wet paper towel until they sprouted. Planted them against the fence.
It didn't take long to start sending it's tendrils around the trellis.
First flower.

 Notice how far the morning glory is from the lady bug on the fence.
 It has pretty much spread out and covered the lady bug. It's still blooming-purple, pink and white flowers. I'll miss this so much in the winter, but plan on planting a few more in the spring.

I've been Christmas decorating. Here's a sneak peak.
 I am participating in the Cozy at Christmas Holiday Blog Tour and will show my house on Tuesday. I hope you come back and also check out the other bloggers homes and wonderful Christmas ideas. It runs Dec. 5, 6, and 7.
 When son was home for Thanksgiving he made a pie crust to use in an ad(he's a graphic designer. He cut this out with an exacto knife. and baked it on parchment paper. It was the top of a pie to be used for pie day. I thought it came out so pretty. So delicate.
See you next Tuesday. Lots going on here at Brookhollow Lane. Have a great week!

Happy Thanksgiving

Just a quick post before the holiday this week. Progress on the dust ruffle-it's finished. I probably would not make this again. SO much fabric made it really hard to work with. I am happy with the finished ruffle, but buying it would have been so much easier. We ended up buying the headboard. I'll show more on this later.
 Working away at my embroidered ornament, Gotta finish soon.
 SALE in my Etsy shop starting on Monday, Nov. 21 through Nov.28. Everything will be 15% off. Just use the code "Merry" at checkout.
Getting ready to start Christmas decorating next week. I'm very thankful for you, my blogging friends and hope you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Fall Days

I've been busy. Busy doing lots of this...
 and this. Son is coming home this week for Thanksgiving. So excited!
 Also this-I draw the pattern on fabric ...
 and start backstitching. I'll add some color after the stitching is done. This will be a Christmas ornament for other son. Teeny tiny stitches.
 I've also begun another project to use some of these pretty vintage tea towels. I'll show more as I progress. Some crochet is in order.
 I couldn't pass this up on Craig's list. I'll be doing some painting soon. It kinda matches the one I already have. These will be our night stands.
 I'll leave you with a pretty picture. The light was coming through the blinds. There is Bowie in his "spot"-he lays on the back top of the couch and looks out the window while he sunbathes. Notice the doggie picture and the little white Scottie. Even the wood carving on the wood furniture reminds me of a dog.
 Bowie says "Have a good week"!
By the way, our weather has been fantastic. Love the fall!

Enough said.
