A scheduled post today as we will be spending today in a lovely little Oxfordshire village, with lunch at the local pub, with Tom's parents, brother and cousins...the pub is just a short walk from their house, in a village with very few houses...it's gorgeous! There will be 12 of us and we have really been looking forward to getting together. One of my very favourite things about this Holiday time is visiting with friends and family.
I can't believe how close it is to Christmas now and it's the longest day already!
So, we al know the lines from 'It's a Wonderful Life' about how an angel gets his/her wings when a bell rings don't we? I made these little angel busts from a pattern in Tone Finnanger's latest Tilda book, Homemade and Happy. They are such a lovely little decoration to make...
The hair and bodice top are painted on with acrylic paint and then you simply decorate as you wish. I made most of them as little presets, but have two hanging from our mantelpiece.
I photographed the rest hanging from a little artificial tree that I have in my craft room. It was the tree Tom and I bought when we got married, so when it started to fall apart and had to be replaced, silly old me got a bit sentimental and instead of throwing it out, I get it out every year and decorate it for the upstairs landing or the craft room! There are also lots of bells hanging from it this year :)
Thank you for stopping by, I really love to read your comments...have a wonderful Sunday and I'll be back tomorrow.
Love and Hugs
