That wreath is fabulous! Wowzer.

I don't have may pics of my holiday decor, but I did take a few pics of my favorite vintage ornaments.

I found an entire set of these at Thrift Town a few weeks ago. Ragedy Ann and Andy and that silly little dog are doing all sorts of fancy stuff.


This is a painted gourd from a local, gal Jeni Gochnour http://jenibee.com. She makes amazing stuff.


And this wall hanging was just finished a few weeks ago. I've been working on it since May. Sheesh... I am such a procrastinator. It is freezer paper appliqu. I got all of the supplies from my class, so it isn't really my fabric style. My MIL is getting it for Christmas. I am currently working on a more whimsy version for myself.


I'll take pics and get back to this thread.

Oooh, I love seeing everyone's decorations. SewingLori, I have the Raggedy Ann/Andy ornaments from when they were new (70s, I assume!)... And I LOVE your winter house applique  -- so pretty, nice work!

I am working on a series of three small table top trees. I still have to find the right things to decorate them with.
I wrote a tutorial on how to make these in the December 2007 section of my blog.

Thanks! The applique is really quite fun.

Those ornaments say copyright 1973 on them. I love them. Sorry for calling them vintage!  Embarrassed

Cute Trees, Ansleybleu!  I have your WW Etsy set on my faves, I've used it in 2 treasuries! Cheesy

SewingLori, those are cute!  More than 20 years old is vintage, so you're good.  Oh crap, I guess that means I'm vintage.  Dont' tell anyone. Wink  That applique is AMAZING!

I'm almost 30 so does that mean I'm vintage, too? Does that mean I can put myself in a store window and sell myself for some overinflated crazy price? Awesome!!

Here is another Christmas ornament favorite:


This is my tree. It has all shades of green sparkly balls from Martha Stewart Everyday from k-mart (bought on after Christmas clearance for $2.50 a box - yahoo!). This picture looks a little crazy because I took it through some 3D glasses that dragonflyducky sent me that turn all lights to snowmen.

It is a dinky tree - only 3 1/2 feet. I live in a dinky apartment, so it fits perfectly.
