Just before Christmas!

Oh  babe , it’s cold outside …… it’s time for snuggling up in fur throws and woolen blankets , looking  at the flickering candles in the fireplace and waiting for Christmas magic to surround us  with silvery- gold snowflakes…….
 Oh dear readers, as you can see I’ m a bit carried away by the wintry weather, which finally came to  our country, making us dream of  white Christmas and the warmth of festively decorated homes that smell of baking and love.
Today, I     want to share with you some pictures of my little house with its Christmas ‘costume’ on, the lights , the tree ,

 and the tiny creatures that come out every year at this time, to give colour and cheer to  our house and our hearts.

Those of you who follow my blog know that I always like to make handmade presents and decorations for the different seasons, like wreaths and good luck charms . I made some this year too and I’m happy-happy with the outcome.
I bought these three wooden items, painted them with acrylic colours and added ribbons and thread to hang the golden stars and the 2018 ‘sign’from . I think they look great.
 Two of them have already been gifted to my son’s nursery school teachers , who do a great job and really deserve them.

I also bought some white keys from IKEA and added these wooden tags to them, which I had already painted and decorated with some decoupage and acrylic colours. I added ribbons and they too have been already given to people I love and wanted to present them with a little something.

Finally, I made a little painting on canvas for my little  boy’s room. I used a sweet design on a paper napkin with a deer and some rabbits trying to find shelter in the snowy woods and used decoupage glue on canvas to create this lovely , I think, picture. 

 I also painted the bottom part of the canvas which was not covered by the napkin and a heart - warming winter scene came to life . I had planned  to put it in the little one’s room, but I  couldn’t resist hanging it in the living room, to see it all day(hi ,hi, hi!!!).
When I like something , I can’t part with it . What can I do, that’s  me…
Well, I’ll go now my friends, wishing you they sweetest moments for Christmas and the year to come and hope that you all are well , safe and happy.
