White Christmas~

My favorite "color" during the winter months is most certainly white.  And off white, and pearl white and eggshell white...... you get the picture!  I am addicted to it, all shades dark and light and inbetween!  Here are some winter white Christmas ornaments I've been working on.  Each one a little different than the next~  Available in my Etsy Shop .

A Visit to The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow....

"Welcome  to one of America's oldest cemeteries.  Dutch tenant farmer's and their 'huisvrows'  Revolutionary War soldiers and the legendary characters of Washington Irving's 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow' are all buried in the graveyard, including the world famous ghost of The Headless Horseman, who, according to legend,  begins his nightly ride here."

One of the highlights of our recent trip to New York was this cemetery.  The history, the peacefulness, and the eerieness all play a part.  Our family has always been fascinated by the story written by Washington Irving, and to see headstones that the story characters were modeled after...I couldn't think of a better thing to see and do just before Halloween!

White Christmas in October!

Good Grief, I just checked the date of my last blog post and it was way back in August!  I have been sorely neglecting my blog and hope to make up for lost time...... beginning now!   I've been having fun in my work room creating one white Christmas thing after another, and these are my latest creations.... I love the way they turned out and hope you do too!!
