Happy snowy, rainy sunshine of a day folks!
Yep here in Michigan we can expect all three
of these weather phenoms in one day.
Did you know that Christmas was not legal
until 1836 and Alabama was the first state
to adopt Christmas?
Before that it was thought to be a Pagan holiday,
which was passed down by England's Puritans
in the 1600's and then by those Puritans
who came to America.
The law stuck throughout the New England colonies.
Eventually we came to our senses,
as each state began to adopt Christmas.
However, the last state to adopt our holiday
was Oklahoma in 1907.
Today start the reveal of my 2018
With this post I bring you this pretty
red/ blue plaid fabric.
Who cares about this fabric Janice?
Well this is what I made from it.
Keep scrolling down.
I made lil (socks) stockings.
Are they not the cat's PAJAMAS.
I only made enough for this lil tree.
Lil stockings for a lil tree.
I did remove the bunny and collar box
once my present arrived.
You have more?
Why yes I do.
Now this Santa is the Cat's MEOW!
My very first Arnett Santa.
A birthday present to myself.
Which BTW is Sunday.
Bob approved. LOL
I love how he is holding this prim candle.
A good grouping don't you think?
Well, it needed a lil punch.
Remember my 1 3 5 rule.
So I added this shetland sheep.
It now PURRS!
But Janice, this looks a bit bare above?
Why yes it does friends.
Yes it does.
It's missing the paw stamp of approval.
I am working on it.
Will show you all at a later date.
Can you guess what I am making?
It does start with another letter "S"
Hope everyone has a sparkling day!
Socks, Santa and Sheep Blessings To All!
