we had such a lovely, relaxing long weekend... i wish every weekend could be long :-)
i made a few things this weekend...
like these lovely finger garlands
tutorial found here
and these brooches... i wanted to spice up my outfit for my brothers b-day party so i made the smaller one super quick right before we had to leave and then i decided to make one for thanksgiving as well... but i didn't have time... so i made it in the car on our way to LA - easy peasy and cute!
i'll have to get some pics of them on a sweater
we decorated for Christmas yesterday. i feel like i'm living in a Christmas shop... it's a little much for our small house but the hus insisted that we use EVERYTHING and i have a lot... i'm just not crazy about all that i have anymore. i wanted to only put up my vintage decorations (my granny has given me some really pretty things!), my favorites and our homemade decorations... oh well, maybe i'll get my way next year. how many of you have decorated already? do you do a real tree or fake? what is your Christmas decorating style?
oh, did i mention we have two trees this year... we usually put up our fake tree but the fam insisted (they do that a lot) that we get a real one... i wasn't too keen on the idea but i'm good with it now. i do like having two trees in my house!
