It is finally beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

There was a space of time last night to decorate - and
anyone that knows me, knows I love to decorate for Christmas.

This year, I wanted something simple and easy to accomplish
in a short amount of time.
So...I opted to hand-tie bows and streamers directly on the tree and 
then add a touch of gold ribbon just to reflect a little more light.

I threw in a mirror...added a quilt or two and then had the bright idea to 
make a backdrop of some bead board planks 
that I had left over from our kitchen remodel.  

 I just leaned it against the wall... 
Who knows...I might try to hang stockings on that...we'll see...

Oh, and I will be adding a tree skirt with ruffles and ribbons...
but that is still in the works.

Nothing too fancy...

Just enough to warm up the season, brighten the room and
spread a little joy to those that will be able to join us this year.

Even though all of our GBs won't be able to travel home 
to Gigi's house, we are looking forward to their visits soon
and enjoying all the pictures and photos they are sending...

Meet my little GB Grayson...This is his first Christmas...
I think he is well into the spirit of the season already!


  1. Your decorations look beautiful and I love the picture of Grayson with the lighted chariot!

  2. What a CUTE picture of Grayson ! Great idea ! I think I would like to take one like that of my 4 month old grandson !

  3. Your decorations look lovely, Lana. I love the photo of Grayson.

  4. Love the burlap bows. You do look decorated now.


A few years back...3 maybe?

 A little over 3 years ago, our little quilt shop grew up. We moved to a larger space and hired more employees. So much has happened in thos...
