Yesterday, as I looked outside, I wondered where the expression “green Christmas” came from….here is the Bristolwood, it was more like UGLY gray and BROWN! This was the view from the side of the house……
Even my little stream that cheerfully wanders in the front yard was looking pretty frumpy!
I was going to upload these pictures and use them yesterday, but then felt a twang of guilt….shame on me for feeling SO sorry for myself…after ALL, it is ONLY *S-N-O-W*! Then, when I woke up this morning, the pallette was “changed”!
And, the back yard!
Yes, this little “dusting” of snow made me feel a WHOLE lot better! And, I felt more “Christmasy”! hehehe Too bad this wasn’t here two days ago. Ah well, we did get SOME snow!
If anyone can tell me exactly HOW to do a NEAT blanket stitch, I would greatly appreciate it! I made the little Scotties for the wreath out of black felt, stitching around the edges, and lightly stuffing each little fellow! Here is a closeup of one…..
You can see my stitching skills are lacking!
Late this afternoon, we met Carly. I had some soap I wanted to give her for her new pup, Joe. Carly said the little fellow needed a bath, and she wanted a mild soap. I had made one up for my boys, and I figured she might like it. I also packed up a couple of small oxtail bones to greet the new man. Oh, is he DARLING!!!!!
Carly brought Joe out to meet us. Poor little boy began to shiver….Carly said he is NOT fond of the cold, so her daughter, Sarah, grabbed a little blanket to wrap him up! He is so cute and you can tell he is very trusting and sweet!!!!
