More decorating of the House...

I am going to see if my downloading picture button is working today.

So far, so good!!  Hurray!  The above is a school picture that a made a little frame for, of my son in 2nd or 3rd grade.   I made them of all three children.
This one is my eldest daughter and the next is my youngest.  And of course they are all very much grown now with children of their own...

This picture is of a Santa that I made from a plastic jug with a styrofoam ball on top.  I will post the directions on my craft blog soon.
I really like this little tree!  I made it last year by taking a styrofoam craft tree shape and put colored common pins through one clear bead and made as many rows as I could.  I love the brightness of it and it was fun to do!

And this is my basket for the front porch step.  It has large pine cones that I picked up in our neighborhood and sprayed with a little fake snow.  I added a few old balls that were losing their color and fabric white and red pointsettias.  The basket is quite large and makes a nice accent.  I will probably start over with it next year as the items are getting very old from being on the step in the weather but the basket is very good.
I made 2 of these Santa's from felt circles, buttons and a blanket stitch around their borders.  I used real little twigs for their arms.
Thank you so much for visiting today and I am so happy my download of pictures is working today!  Thanks for the tips from my blog buddy, Kathy
