Home Sweet Home has captivated the “I can’t have a house, but I can dream” part of my brain again.  Especially since I’ve been fantasizing about being able to building this one day.

However I need to learn that not every cool picture should be shown to my husband.

Because he’s now trying to figure out how to get one of these in our house.

*okay, okay I think it’d be super cool too*


The weather warmed up a little last week prompting me to finally admit that it was time to get the rest of the holiday decorations down and get some of the house cleaned.  I apologize for the pictures, if anyone knows how to make a room with yellow walls and no real direct sun light (a blessing in the summer, just not for taking pictures) please let me know!

I know I’m probably the last person to get on the “KC and CO” train, but I’ve wanted this poster for a couple years and finally got one last week!  Right now it’s stretching out and will eventually go in a frame in the kitchen.

Crystal baffles us in our house, we never know what to do with it.  However, the yarn balls did constitute another project toward my stash-busting this year.

Okay horrible picture, but you can just see that the other two embroidery projects have made it on the wall.

p.s. we got a new bookcase for the DVD’s this weekend, so now we have to have another day reorganizing the system and yes that is our plastic dinosaur collection currently decorating the top.

A little post holiday crafting for my home.

Using a Dover Needlework Transfer Pattern and some beige cotton fabric and spare embroidery thread I had lying around.  Time spent – about 3 days.


Now I have something to look at while I work on that never ending pile of dishes.

Also finished this

and this

just haven’t found a place for them yet.

And for an idea of gauge, and because I’m rather proud of my small stitches.  A close up next to a bottle cap left over from New Years Eve.

The Christmas decorations are finally up!  We spent yesterday decorating the house feels wonderful!

Stockings hung with care and yes those are a collection of plastic dinosaurs.

A little Christmas message.

This years Christmas Craft.

This years Christmas Tree, which wouldn’t be complete without …

The Christmas Cat taking up permanent residence under the tree.

P.S. Extra points if you can find the Transformer Ornaments in the Tree…

It’s like finding in the Glass Pickle…

except with Decepticons.

The newest thing on our walls. From our excurssion to the Britt Festival a few weeks ago. It’s even a real print, numbered and signed. I believe that makes it fancy.

B and I travel… alot and we’ve been trying to figure out a way of keeping track of everything we’ve seen and the strange places we’ve been through.

A few months ago we came up with “The Map” and a few nights ago it finally came into being.

So let me introduce you to our new favorite piece of decoration… “The Map”.
