Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside its so delightful…
coffee, fire, sleepy dogs, a warm shawl… and a twinkly tree to delight the eyes. And on that tree proudly displayed are my lovely gifts from Kim of KimmyKats. This hop is a great way to meet people- I had known Kim from her work, and her participation on other hops. It was nice to chat via email and – I confess – stalk her blog to get ideas to personalize her ornament.
How thrilled was I to open this:
I had already admired Kim’s repurposing of flatware, and now to own 2! The stamped handle is gorgeous, the crystals and the detaisl on the bead caps accentuating the pattern of the flatware. And then the Santa! What detail! so adorable!
( Yes, I am cheating. I am still working on the big tree as I write this. Its been really busy with teaching final classes at the studio and doing holiday shows. This gives you the idea of how great they will look… )
( Tiny tree pictured in my cheater pix. Watch those gnomes with the wine… )
Thanks to Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime for another fabulous festive friendly hop! And thanks to my fab partner Kim! Please sip your eggnog or your cocoa and enjoy the other offering from these partners! Happy Holidays to all!
