A little time for creating ~

I finally made this little Christmas goodie from a
tutorial that I purchased from Dawn at
The Feathered Nest quite some time ago.
Isn't it sweet ?
I also made some more dried lavender sachets
in the theme of the season ~
they are in my Etsy shop now
you can click here to visit
Notice the pine in the photos? The day finally came...
they trimmed our trees.

they look very sad now.
they literally cut the whole side off
of one tree so only half the tree
is left.
I asked them to save the pine
from our tall pine tree
for me to use and not put it
in their shredder ~

Have a wonderful Thursday.

You and Dawn are both so creative! All of your things are so pretty! And I love your tiny little snow falling ever so gently on your blog! *
So sad about your trees! But at least you can make something good out of it and use the pine boughs. I bet they smell wonderful!

Hi Sandi.. love the little shaker... how sweet... I usually place little hat pins in mine if I am lucky enough to find a lovey cut glass one who has lost it's partner.... Alittle snow may be in the forecast for a part of next week... Tom is still over to the golf course everyday and right now as a matter of fact.. Today is cleaning day but I clean a bit... sit a bit... clean a buit... You get the idea... I make a all day job out of it...

Everything is lovely! Wish I could have some pine boughs around here. No pine trees in Kuwait! I'm gonna go find some branches to hang my crocheted snowflakes on. Love all your crafting! You are busy these days. Fun busy! Blessings, :) Tammy
