Merry Christmas......it's COMING

Just saying......it's coming at the speed of sound and there's NO WHERE to hide!! :::Smiles::: I've added a Christmas countdown so we can keep track, over on the right!! 51 days!! Yikes!! I'm feverishly working on goodies for my 2 stores. Today's offerings are one more Advent Calendar swag and 2 framed stitcheries.

The advent calendar showcases Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet in shades of red, green, blue and white. I LOVE how the tulle netting really jazzes them up!! I also think the crocheted fibers are a nice touch. Anywho.....just sharing. This swag can be found here: http://www.shellyraewood.etsy.com/ or http://shellyraewood.shophandmade.com

I also have added 2 framed stitchery pieces today. I LOVE handwork, especially embroidery. The first one features a peaceful cabin, nestle among the pines with the Christmas Star shining overhead. It also has an alphabet sampler, much like a young lady would have added in earlier days. It is framed in a flat black and measures 8 x 10.

The second stitchery showcases a green hand-stitched feather tree. The tree is embellished with vintage buttons from Aunt Rita's stash. It wishes you a Merry Christmas in country red and green. They can also be found in my Etsy shop!! Hope you enjoyed them!!
