Merry Christmas One and All!

We've been so busy getting ready for the holidays, we've been neglecting our blog. So, we'll wish you all happy holidays and make a resolution to be more chatty in the new year -- which is not so far away . . .

That's Sarah's Christmas tree pictured above -- the tree that undecorates itself. For every ten ornaments I put on, one falls off. It is a fraser fir and the branches are a little on the limp side. Next year, I'll get one that is sturdier.

Here's a close up of some ornies. That sweet charm of my dog Cairo was made by the very talented Lana Manis of Honeysuckle Lane (if you don't know her work, visit her at and The angel behind and to the right of the charm was made by Rachael Kinnison of the Lady's Repository Museum ( and Diamond K Folk Art (, who also makes the most amazing reproduction dolls I have ever seen.

I have some other fabulous hand-made ornies that I'll try to take pics of and post soon. In the meantime, drink a lot of eggnog and eat a lot of cookies! Life is short. Indulge a little.

Best wishes,

Your tree is beautiful! I know what you mean about ornies falling off...I have to pick several up daily, but mostly because my kitties knock them off. :)
