'Tis the season

'Tis the season

We spent some time this weekend decorating for the holidays. I love our hearth!
  • The stockings hung by the chimney with care were knit by Kristina last year. Gorgeous!
  • Those are the lower branches of our Christmas tree on the hearth. They conveniently hide the lamp cords, which normally lie behind some leaning picture frames.
  • We took down the leaning artwork for Christmas and hung this cool paper snowflake that Boy 1 made at afterschool (pattern here). Doesn't it look nice against the red wall?
  • I think the Ladybug spinning wheel looks pretty good there, too.

This hearth makes me smile.

I have quite a few fiber-related Christmas tree ornaments, too. Last year my mom gave me some clear glass balls, and I stuffed them with yarn scraps from current projects. They look nice, and they can be switched out anytime!


  1. Owen made that!?!

    It's beautiful. Your hearth makes me want to come visit. Yesterday, we hung up the velvety stockings y'all gave us once when we were up there...

  2. The hearth is beautiful. I am so glad that you still love the stockings.

    I can't believe how beautiful that snowflake is! Wow.

    Will you send a picture of your tree to me offline?

  3. I am totally jealous that you all already decorated! We have only managed to put up lights outside.
