A few Christmas crafts over the years......

 One of my favorite crafts is to make Christmas wreaths
out of vintage bits and baubles. This was one I made this year....
 along with this one....
 Mimi and I embellished this one a little more this year....
 I love the old bottle brush wreaths I used to sell these
a lot in the store.....
 here are two that I kept.....
 This was my first wreath I made years ago
and sold a few in the store....
 I found the pink branches at the thrift store this year
 and added them in.....
 The little angels always make me smile......

Its snowing a little today kind of gray and overcast but in the 30's
so were having great weather. 
The kids and I went for a almost 3 mile walk today to burn off all the 
Holiday eating as of late and George made it the whole way, I was very impressed
with our little man.....
I hope your week is going well also!
