Lookin' Like Christmas

I've been working on Christmas pieces for the last few weeks and each time I finish one, it's placed on temporary display where it waits patiently until it finds its Forever Home. It's fun to have them hanging around the house and they provide lots of inspiration. Of course it starts to feel more like Christmas than Halloween as they start to take over and nudge the spooky stuff out of their way. I'll start listing this first set on Ebay tonight . . .

It's lookin' like Christmas outside too. Although I'm not really feeling like I'm ready for snow, it sure looks pretty. And most of it's melted now so at least I won't have to shovel for the trick or treaters tonight. The smell of winter is in the air . . .


My second set is done too and they're finishing up their photo shoot . . .
I'm heading to the Halloween Parade at the elementary school today. Such fun watching all the little ones showing off their costumes. Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!

Halloween Greetings! Great Christmas goodies you've been working on..yes, our snow has left for the most part too & can stay gone for awhile.

We have a parade and party at school today as well, love seeing all the kids dressed up.

Beautiful snowscape, Madalynne and now I've seen your cute-as-can-be Christmas characters I'm inspired to make something Christmassy myself!
Have fun at the parade!
Best wishes
