Merry Belated Christmas!

So at our family Christmas get-together, my brother-in-law feels the need to remind me how long it's been since I updated my blog.   Says they are getting tired of taking the Spring Yard Tour and what's up with that? ha!  (We also had a good laugh reminiscing about the "gag-gift backfire" post from last December.) 

Honestly, time just got the best of me and I could go on and on with excuses (the move, my job, .......) but I suppose it's time to jump back on the bandwagon and make my big comeback!

Here are some really cute garden ornaments I made and displayed on my "garden-nature" tree in our sunroom.   (I had planned on making lots of them and doing some craft shows but that didn't happen either.)

(tea-stained gloves, stuffed with moss with small clay pot and flowers hot-glued)

My mom gave me these little stained-glass candle holders.  (She also moved last year and you should see my basement now!) 
I think they look terrific on top of our entertainment center; I've already found two more at flea markets and thrift stores.

We had so much fun decorating our new home.   Here's my "snowman" village:

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is all psyched for the new year!   I certainly am!   Got me a new job and I'm really looking forward to the reduced stress!

I promise to keep in touch better and already have lots of ideas for future crafts I can't wait to show you and you'll get a peek of my basement workshop!  (Look out! Might give the show "hoarders" a run for its money!!)

Happy New Year!!
