Tis the Season!

For making Merry!
We decked our halls last Saturday.
After Black-Friday shopping and
Anniversary lunching.
After being very ThankFULL.

The ornaments I've managed to finish for our tree this year...


Because they're all "mom's favorite"...



A little glimpse of the happy chaos that is our tree...


Outside our front door...


Cozy afternoon knitting...


Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by my (snowy) neck of the woods...
and don't forget to enter my holiday giveaway :)

Beautiful. Don't you just love the feeling you get when your house is so festive? I always thought I'd get those same ornaments for my 3 kids. I saw them in a store this fall but thought they'd just shake their heads and fail to appreciate them. A sure sign they're growing up, I guess.

Cute ornaments!! I love how you describe your tree as happy chaos. I am going to borrow that phrase as that is how ours always looks too. :)

Your afternoon of knitting sounds very enjoyable. :)

Catherine said...

Staci,

Your tree looks great. Congratulations on all of the ornaments you stitched and finished this year.

Oh, those socks with the cable on your side bar are stunning!

Hope your weekend is loads of fun.

Hugs!

Your tree looks so pretty with all those ornaments. Your latest are so cute. I didn't realize you had done all that stitching this year. I guess I lost track and thought you were only a knitter/crocheter these days. Glad you haven't abandoned x-stitch!

Dee said...

I absolutely LOVE that yarn you are using for your socks!!!

All the ornaments are cute! I love a tree full of home made ornaments. Most of ours are stitched by me (or by friends). Makes the tree so much more special.

Kate said...

Gorgeous pile of ornaments. Hope you enjoy your knitting.

Penny said...

Love the oldest, middle, youngest ornaments, Staci!! I may need to hunt those down for my three grown sons--think they would get a kick out of them :)

Your ornament finishes are so, so pretty--great job on all!

Love your tree--it looks a lot like mine--a little bit of everything :)

I love your ornaments and your tree. So festive! I love your polka dot bag too. There's something about dots that is just so happy.

Melanie said...

Love seeing all your ornaments and other pics! I'm jealous that you made so many ornaments this year. I think I finished up.........two. *sniff*

Berit said...

Adore those ornaments! I think my favorites are Adam and Even (I remember that one!) and the Sampler Girl Reindeer.

Siobhan said...

Beautiful decorations! We will hopefully put up our tree this weekend. I love opening up all the ornaments and the trip down memory lane that each one brings. :)
