The stockings were stitched using perle cotton on linen, and you can see the great little charms and buttons and ribbons on them by clicking once on the picture.
Now we come to one of my eccentricities ... the tree. I have a reputation, of sorts, for going a little overboard when decorating the tree. My mom says it can be seen from space. She's probably exaggerating.
The angel topper is made from an old quilt, and I wish I could remember where I got it (quite unlikely). At the moment, there are more than 400 ornaments, but that will definitely change. As long as someone sells new and antique ornaments, I'll probably have to collect more (hello, my name is Doris and I'm an ornament addict). Just like the stockings, you can get a really good look at the tree by clicking once on the picture.
So, everyone, we're gonna play a game. Check back here in a few days, and there will be an activity (individual or group ... your choice). If you show up, I'll be expecting you to play along, so be ready. Hope to see you then ...
