Pajama Pants and Monkey Bow-Ties

What a funny title. But I couldn't think of anything better! I haven't really sewn any clothing since the "sewing marathon" that happened last Summer for Sara's wedding. This project was very, very fun.

And did I mention...very rewarding? :-D

Thank you very much for all the (extremely kind) comments regarding my 'Decorating Posts', below. I hope your Christmas was Merry & Bright!

Christmas Decorating 2011

I've always wanted to do a 'Candyland' tree. Thanks to Target and Walmart I was able to do it pretty cheaply this year.

I got this "half-tree" at a local boutique a few years ago. It's so perfect on the landing where there's limited space.

I tried something a little different on the archway this year.
I think I like it. : )

Pretty at night, too!
New fab pillows at Target this year!!

Family room:

Two new glitter houses from TJ Maxx, this year.

Are you as in love with 'Prep and Landing' as we are over here? I picked up this DVD from Walmart this year. It's the original...not the new one from this year.
Just a little fun on the kitchen counter.

And my miniature 'Williraye' nativity. I'll always treasure it!!
I trust you're all having a good holiday season out there. I know I've been MIA.
Take care and enjoy the Season!! : )

My Favorite Christmas Decorating (Part II)

Part II: 2008-2010

Below: A few Lori Mitchell figurines. So cute!!

Snowflakes and silver bulbs adhered to ceiling with sewing thread and masking tape (cut into thin strips).

Below: Last year's 'Village Under the Tree'.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I've been swamped!!! I hope to make the rounds again soon. Happy Holidays!
