My Favorite Posts of 2010

There seems to be a theme floating around Blog Land. Lots of bloggers are looking back at their posts from 2010 and selecting some for a year review. Not wanting to be left out, I thought I’d share mine as well – a post from each month.  (If you want to read the post, just […]

Making A Simple Hooded Bath Towel

Due to “The Blizzard of 2010” my daughter and her family were stuck at our home for an extra day and a half before heading back to Boston after Christmas.  I took advantage of that time to make some hooded bath towels for my grandsons.  I had already purchased the towels and washcloths, planning to […]

Christmas Recap

I’ve been trying to remember the Christmas of 2010 but a lot of the details escape me. Hubs and I came down with the stomach flu on the 23rd and we’re both still feeling the lasting effects of it. We both slept through Christmas Eve and most of Christmas.  December 26 is still a blur. […]

Wrensday: Keep Christmas In Your Heart

I made small lanterns from canning jars using wire, yarn, […]

Christmas Cozy Bed

I usually like for my bedroom to have all cream/tan bedding for a restful feeling.  During December, though, I like to add a bit of dark red to warm things up.  Nothing too much, just 2 dark red pillow cases, 2 thrifted accent pillows (brown, tan, and red), and my favorite monogram pillow. The monogram […]
