My Favorite Christmas Movies

Lights In The Parkway

I found out about this adorable light display for us to drive through in Allentown, PA.  It was something new to see and we had a lot of fun.  My favorite was the Wizard of Oz lights.  We picked up coffees and treats on the way and afterwards stopped at the gift barn.  Everyone we…

Felt Wall Hanging

I’ve been making felt Christmas ornaments and my original plan was to hang them on our wooden tree.  I decided that I like the way we decorate the tree already and didn’t want to change it.  So I made this wall hanging instead.   The last ornament I made was the Felt Santa.   Pattern Credit: Felt…

Garden Update – July 16, 2019

I found some nice floral fabric to add to my collection. The animals were adorable of course and…
