::garland::



The Nesting Place is hosting a fun little tour of garlands. If you click on the above picture you can go to her blog and see all of the links. Here is our mantle and garland for '08. My favorite part is our new little birds in the twig tree. I love you, birds! The rest is basically just circles cut out of scrapbook paper, ribbon, and silver balls.

The little socks are filled with a treat for each day in Dec.

Great garland! I've been looking for the old fashioned little clip birds, but I can't find them. My mom had some when I was kid and I think about them all the time. I really want some. :(

Are yours fabric or painted?

I just discovered your blog from the Nester's garland show, and I love it. I am entranced by your artwork. I, too, love words and phrases and inspirational quotes. You have found a beautiful way to display them. It's late, but I am going to be back tomorrow to enjoy some more of your blog. Thanks for sharing!
