It's beginning to look a little like Chirstmas


I am linking with Kathleen at Faded Charm for White Wednesday, it seems I am hardly on my blog anymore... let alone visiting all of you. 
 I plan on slowing way down this winter and hopefully I can get caught up on blogland. 

I have one more show this weekend, actually I am in 2 shows at the same time. I will be physically at Kane County Market this Saturday and Sunday. 
I also have a corner at Horton's in Tipton, Indiana and will be participating in their 
Artisan Christmas Market
Saturday, December 3
9am to 6pm
Please join Karen and Tim for Christmas inspiration 

I have been working in the studio getting ready for the Kane County Market. These tags or ornaments are so simple and I guess that is why I like them. They will look great on a package wrapped in kraft paper.

They are made with old ledger paper and prayer cards affixed on cardstock backing and embellished with boxwood . 

I have been slowly bringing in a little Christmas the last couple of days, I decorate each day. Even up to a couple of days before Christmas even though we are not here. I leave the decorations up through January. 
We have a fresh tree and that goes down on New Years day though.


I love greens and tallow berry. 
I don't take anything out, I just add to it. My collections look great with Christmas. 

I just love puttering and making each room festive yet - 
I keep it pretty simple.

I love the mixed greens. I usually get a case of it and put it all over the house. I also use seeded eucalyptus and boxwood with pepper berry sometimes.

They dry beautifully, so I can keep them throughout the winter.

I hope you are having a fun week and I look forward to getting around after this week. 
Can't wait to see all your decorating ideas!


  1. Rebecca, you putter so well. That three tiered display is so pretty. Your tags are quietly stunning too. hugs♥O

  2. OH Rebecca, I would love to see your home at Christmas time I'm sure that it's just amazing.
    the tags that came with the things I bought from you are on the branches in the living room everyone always comments on them I wish I had about ten more of them....

  3. The TALLOW BERRY Accents are "Just PeRfeCt"!*!*!

  4. Your collections sure DO look wonderful with Christmas! I sure would like to get my hands on tallow berry. Your ironstone is just gorgeous displayed this way. I hope your shows go great for you!

  5. I can't waith to see more off your home at Christmas time, it must be lovely :)
    Youre tags are beautifull,
    i wish you all the luck for the weekend,
    hugs, Sonja

  6. Dear Rebecca, it surely starts to look a bit like christmas in your beautiful home.
    The greens look wonderful with all your white collections and a little glitter added, and all is perfect.
    Sweet friend when will you have christmas things in your shop?
    Wish you great succes in your shows this weekend,
    and sends you love and hugs.

  7. I started decorating yesterday late afternoon and about a half an hour into it we lost power. From 5:00 until around 9:00 we had no power, so I basically got nothing done! We had a snow storm in our town! First snow of the year and it knocked out power to about 14,000 residents. So hopefully I will start (again) decorating today. Your house looks beautiful. I am hoping when we move that I can decorate and not have to take stuff down to put decorations up. I'm sure I'll be getting rid of some things.

  26. Loving the addition of greenery to your existing decor - it is simply purrfect!!! I do hope you slow down this winter.....I think that is what winters are supposed to do...slow us down.....and take a break from the normal hectic.
