One of my favorite blog friends is Tonya at Flat Creek Wool and Pottery. She is a very talented artist. This year she had a giveaway on her blog. I won and did a happy dance. She was giving away a Rustic Wool Ornament. It came in the appropriately labeled box.
She felted this round natural wool ornament from her own sheep's wool. How cute is this? I am one of those people who is so amazed with someones talent. I have none. I think that is why I am so in awe of someone who does.
I had to wait until we got a new tree. The old one went kaput. I cheat, we have a fake tree which is already prelit. I think with all of the kids gone I just don't have the energy to get a real tree, string lights, decorate it and make sure it has water. I always forget the water and then the needles all fall of and it kinda looks like Charlie Browns Christmas tree. I digress..... this is the beautiful ornament on the tree.
This is Tonya's ornament from 2010. Ewenice sporting a bell.
Last year I emailed Tonya a copy of our farm logo. She was able to recreate it in this lovely ornament. I was so pleased I gave all the kids one for their tree. Oh, and the secretary at the hospital. I wasn't sure if the mailperson would appreciate one so I did practice a small amount of restraint.
We were able to find a 6'5" tree that would actually allow an angel to top our tree. Our ceilings are a bit low. Folks were a bit shorter back in the day. The angel will have a Crick in her neck because she is sort of jambed up there. As I look at this picture she sort of lists to the side. Is that port or starboard?
Now all lit and cozy.
Thank you Tonya for such a special gift. I will treasure it and it will grace our tree for many years to come. Christmas is such a special time of year. Tonya can also make mugs with your farm logo. Feel free to follow the above link and contact her. Like I said she is one talented lady and has the cutest little son. Well, not so little anymore but he is still cute.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration this past weekend at our daughter Sue's home. It was filled with love, family and of course fun. I hope that everyone had a happy and safe holiday.
