Its A Corncob Christmas

Good happy TGIF my friends.
I am not sure what I will expect when I walk 
out the door this morning.
Suppose to have snow or freezing rain, or both.
Not looking forward to my drive 
into work today in the dark.
Sometimes driving along the river
 can be a bit dicey this time of year.

For my next display 
I added this strip of fabric
to my picture frame.
Then I added silver ornaments 
with more of the strips of fabric.

I had this piece of fabric 
that was originally a dried meat bag.
I ripped the edges where you see the red stripe.

I love the simplicity of the ornaments
hanging above our man picture.
I was drawn to him at an antique store,
so I bought it.
My cousin came over this Summer and said
"He looks just like your brother".
OMG he does I exclaimed.
I never realized it at the time, 
but he does look like my brother.

Next I hung this stocking to the left.

Pantry boxes and firkin.

Chestnuts in an early bowl.

A few candy canes with a die cut santa.

So then I found this Santa coloring page.
 I drew it up and traced it on pages
from an old book.

I did the same with these trees.

Now when Julie from
My Primitive Heartstrings
blog posted some similar to these
for her Christmas goodes sale....
I was stunned.
Her's which were from a pattern
from Cinnamon Creek were almost like mine.
So if you would like to purchase some,
please visit Julie's blog.
Or you can also purchase the pattern from
Cinnamon Creek's Etsy site.
I made mine just for personal use.

I strung my cranberry garland.
I love how it dries up with age.

I also hung these die cut Happy Holidays tags.

My friend Ruth mailed me more of these
candle lights that I lost in our van mishap.
Are they not the cutest!

She also made these prim graters 
from tobacco sticks and bent old grater pieces.
Thank you Ruth for shipping more to me.
I love them so.

My latest rug in red and white.
If you notice I placed my cheese ladder
on top of the red grain measure.
Also added these fuzzy candy canes 
I purchased at the show.

Night time view.

I think my man gave his stamp of approval.
I need to give him a name.
Any ideas on what his name should be?
For my new followers,
I truly believe this man saved
 our home from burning down.
It's a long story,
but he holds a place of distinction
now in our home. 
Wow he sure does look like my brother Tom.

In other news,
starting today my posts will be every other day
now until Christmas.
I have so much to share with you all.

Remember my next post will be on Sunday.
Hope you enjoy the first part of the weekend.

Corncob Tree Blessings To All!

  2. You have done well with decorating your corn cob Christmas Tree! I am happy that you were able to replace a bit of what you lost on your travel mishap. I too would be drawn to a photo/picture of someone at a store and purchase and hang in my home. He looks like he truly belongs in your home and he would be happy with the ornaments and decor around him. Your diecuts look great. Look forward to what next you'll share.
