Making Things For Christmas Down Through The Years

I love Christmas time. At the beginning of December, I get out all my Christmas decorations and tree to decorate the house.  Before I finish, my three cats, Jerry, Maggie and Brady, are knocking decorations off the tree and batting them around.  They sometimes work so hard to wreck the tree, that they knock it over.  It's just part of our Christmas tradition :-)

Over the years, I've made many Christmas decorations.  Here are a few.

This is a macrame Santa wall hanging I made about 25 to 30 years ago. The whites of Santa's eyes used to be white instead of yellow, and his wooden nose used to be red. But regardless of his age showing, he is hung up every year.  I could replace his eyes and repaint his nose, but some how that wouldn't seem right.

I love to paint with acrylics, and my favorite medium to paint on is rocks.

Here is a rock with two blue birds on a white birch branch all decked out for Christmas.

This is a lion and lamb rock that says "Peace On Earth."

And here is one of the many Santa Claus rocks I've made down through the years.

I made these little kitten stocking decorations a couple of years ago.  The picture shows three of them, but I've made many more.

Happy Holidays!
