Hello! I disappeared for a few days; sorry about that. It was a busy week at work. I'm glad to be home today - catching up the laundry, picking up the house, cooking a little bit, and getting ready for Christmas.
Since I don't have any stitching to share, I thought I'd show you one of my favorite recent purchases. Two weekends ago I went to a handmade boutique in White Bear Lake and fell in love with this tree made from recycled materials.
Note the rusty old funnel on the bottom, a dowel (perhaps from an old chair?), the star carved out of old wood, and the buttons. Don't you just love the buttons?
As I get my chores done today, my heart is heavy for all of those affected by the school shooting in Connecticut. Wishing them healing and peace after such a senseless tragedy.
