'Bits n Bobs' is sort of how it feels at this stage.
My last 2 small Christmas Fairs this weekend, but i haven't much left to sell.
Instead of whipping up lots of new stock for the last 2 weeks - i have saved some creative energies for my own Christmas needs / wants.
I have whipped up some 'Man' stockings. Mostly as gifts but there is one Tartan Stocking in the etsy shop. Tartan is getting the big 'thumbs up' from me as "Christmas Decor"...
But, before Ali and MrsB (and the rest of the Clans) tear me limb from limb: I do KNOW that tartan is important with history and stories to them....
Forgive me, i am not Scottish. I just enjoy its richness and warmth and, as a English Woman, it speaks volumes about the Christmas sentiment to me.
This Tartan bunting was whipped up using some larger scraps left over.
I have made some Tartan bunting for my house and my sister-in-laws but there are 2 available in the SnowFish shop, just as a tester for some 2011 projects.
There is so much comfort and joy (oh Tidings of,) in re-discovering the Decorations.
Naturally, all things have changed for me this year. A new home brings a virgin Christmas and it is our time to make some new stories and new traditions.
But i am a lady who relishes the new and untraditional so i am happy to carry my stories wherever i lay my hat.
Giant bells, pom-poms, cherry blossom tree, Felt chains and Tartan bunting.
Bring it on! I'll do it my way.
Merry festivities One and All....
Nearly there MrsB.... looking forward to the Yule Cheer.
I think friendship and family are the finest finishing touch to any Christmas Trimmings.
