OWL HAVE A MERRY ONE!


OWL have me a Merry Little Christmas
with this "owl" tree.

A skinny tree in the corner of the foyer.
added some grapevine garland 
and flocked, pine cone picks



Then comes the "Burlap and Bling"



Picks always give great dimension to a tree
These have burlap and berries...



The topper is "up there"
and easy to assemble if done first!


Owl ornaments in all shapes, sizes, textures
are ready to hang!
I spy a Charley Harper Owl ornament!


 I just kept adding more and more to the tree
til I felt "nocturnal"




My dining room is adjacent to the foyer
so I blinged up my family of owls who live
atop my china cabinet...year round!



another post will show you what I put in the cabinet.

Have you started your decorating yet?

JUST CRIMINAL!

Criminal Minds IS my favorite TV Drama.

The unsub package I received for the Criminal Minds Swap
came from Anett Edwards, Capetown, S Africa.  
Check out the threadwork for Aaron Hotchner mini quilt. 



Other items included a pouch, 
the beautifyl blue fabric - made in Capetown.
Postcard provides a view of a place I will never see.
Always enjoy some yummy candies.


Happy Mail...quite CRIMINAL this time!
