Handmade Gifts & Holiday Decorations

I am sure everyone is sick of Christmas decor, but I am finally posting photos of mine before the dreaded taking it down.


A Shelf in my dinning room.

You can click on any of the pictures to make them larger.

Pink tree in my living room. I am going to use this for V-day and Easter:)


Pretty trees and other pinkish goodies!

Tulle Wreath I made, I will be taking the mercury glass beads off and leaving it up through the spring. May add something red for V-day!

Newspaper tree I made and other fun vintage and vintage inspired goodies.



My beloved vintage jewelry tree. I purchased this on ebay a few years ago and I LOVE IT!. I wish the frame was different. It also has lights that you can plug in so it looks pretty at night too!


About half of my North Pole Villages. Gabby and I set these up and never got around to setting up the rest. Maybe next year. Gabby asked if I would put these in my will for her. TOO Funny.

My kitchen, Darling pink angle on the wall, tine vintage tinsel tree on top of the pie safe. A repro tinsel tree in the corner. Graham knocked this tree down three times and broke about half of the ornaments on this tree. I swear this boy has broken more stuff in his short life than the girls have broken together!
My Vintage Printers box, I love this thing and am going to be sad to take down the Christmas stuff. I need some neeto Valentines goodies~!


One of my trees, this is the traditional colored one. I didn't get a good picture of the pink one this year! There are more here and there in the house, but these are my faves!

Last year my family and I decided to do a handmade gift exchange for the adults. It is so much fun to see all the creative things everyone comes up with. This year I made all gifts with the exception of my kidos gifts. Now I can actually share them.


I made this scarf for my nephew who is an Oregon duck fan. It took me forever because I was not very inspired by the colors!

I knitted these fingerless gloves for my oldest niece, Gabby wanted to keep them!

Neck warmer I made for my aunt.

Neck warmer I made for my Grandma!



Neck Warmer I made for my Mama.



My brother in law is a HUGE NC tarheels fan, so I made him a NC reusable market bag!

I made this for my sweet nephew Eli. It is minky on the back!

Today is the last day to sign ups for the Valentine swap.
I will be assigning partners in the next day or two I will also be announcing the winner of the giveaway!

Hi Jen ~ love the pictures of your decorations. That pink tree is tooo cute! I found one at Michael's, but it's not the vintage one that I REALLY wanted!

Hope you're feeling better!
