I love Garland!

This garland is so simple, but I love it. I would love to say that i made these ornaments but I did not. I bought them 4, 5 or 6 years ago from Pottery Barn Kids and I love them. I think they are so cute and llok good on my hutch . The hutch and the majolica are a story for another day. This garland incorporates some of the same elemenys accept I have jazzed it up a little with this cute mechy ribbon I found in a craft store aptly named Southern Hospitality. I also used raffia because it goes with everything.
I got myself in this picture for fun wearing my painting clothes....because I am supposed to be in the studio working on Christmas orders and instead I am BLOGGING! I love The Nesting Place's contest too much not to do it. i hope I did it right. I was so excited that i did not really closely read it. Oh well...I am off to be good???

Hey, Kim!

Just checked my blog and saw your answer. Yes! I do. But I still have to clean up the HUGE mess I made in here. I also want you to come over and see the mess! ;-) Turned out okay, but I have miiiiiiles to go yet!

Now, on to more important things... I ADORE those ornaments you found! How perfectly precious are they! They are too cute, girl, and very "shiny" to a Magpie. If they go missing from the Merhouse, you'll know where they are!

XO,

Sheila

Hi Kim! It's Kim! Ha! I just wanted to check out your garland! Well, I like your ornaments sooo much! Maybe I can make some like them for next year. Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's nice to know there are other crazy Kims blogging instead of working! I'll check back another time.

Thanks everyone. I know those ornaments were a great find. Everyone should pull out the old jig saw and make them!
