Maybe I should weigh each cookie that I eat to see if that coincides with any weight gain!

Hailey and Axel after a hard day of taking care of the house . . . we are getting a new roof (just as much fun as getting new tires!) and they have been concerned about all the footsteps up on the roof top for the last few days. Do you think they were looking for Santa and his reindeer? xoxx, Renée
Santa skiing? . . . isn't he cute? a vintage find today
. . . the little Santa boot is a reproduction as well as the little glitter bird in the boot . . . some redSHINY BRITES, a wonderful Santa by my friend, Olivia Thomas, the talented Ms. Olive Rose and an angel I made several years ago.
My camera is missing - eeeekkkk! I LOVE my little camera (a Pentax Optio S5i) . . . so I had to use Bob's fancy BIG one until I can find mine. I took lots of photos today though so there will be plenty to share at least until Christmas. xoxx, Renée
This baker's rack has most of the bigger cardboard houses this year . . . and three little Santas with their sleighs and reindeer. The tinsel tree from Seasons of Cannon Falls is my favorite. xoxx, Renée
A little feather tree on alphabet blocks in a bird cage sits on the little quilt fromourSnowflakepattern No 140. The glitter glass stars are from Wendy Addison's A Christmas Pageant 1880 decorations. This link will take you to an ebay auction that has five of them right now. The first photo is of a snowflake ornament but scroll down and you will see the same one I have with three stars. I don't know anything about this particular ebay store but if you are like me you just may want your own dangle star ornament!
Off to Las Vegas tomorrow for the National Finals Rodeo and some shopping at Cowboy Christmas. The twelve days of Christmas Vignettes will start again on Saturday - hoping to see you then! xoxx, Renée
This is a wee part of the bottle brush tree and little vintage cardboard house obsession that I started a few years ago. The round paper maché boxes are Wendy Addison I think. They make a perfect pedestal for a Christmastree. xoxx, Renée
On the 3rd day of Christmas my sweetheart sent to me
. . . some candy canes, a red bucket of greenery, a vintage metal tree topper & a cute little snowman! OK, I know it is supposed to be three French hens but starting today the posts won't fit the verses. Also my twelve days will have a few days interruption when I go to Las Vegas on Wednesday for the NFR (National Finals Rodeo) and Cowboy Christmas . . . back on Friday and the vignettes will start again. xoxx, Renée
On the 2nd Day of Christmasmy true love sent to me . . .
two turtle doves, I mean . . . even bettertwo little angels and a partridge in a pear tree.The little glass oil lantern (at least that's what I think it is) is new this year and a perfect little pedestal for a bottle brush tree.
Thank you Kathie for leaving a comment (visit her blog to see the beautiful tree quilt she is working on) - the two quilting book titles on the end table in yesterday's post are Cloth & Comfort by Roderick Kiracofe and The Quilter's Companion by Linda Seward. Both are very inspiring little quilt books.
. . . . hoping you are enjoying a Merry & Bright Season!
