Just look at all this stuff! Lot's of red. I have been married 40 years and some of these ornaments have survived from almost the beginning. My tastes have changed over the years but I still like to hang all the old ones. I like a really electic mix although overall primitive and country is my style.
I admire people who come up with a theme (sometimes a new one every year) and then stick totally to it. When we were house hunting last time one house we looked at was totally western. I mean, absolutely every item in that house had a western theme. Even the clothes in the closet. Even the stacks of books in the bathroom for reading were Zane Grey novels! It was really cool, but I just could not do that.
I did get some new things this year. Talk about electic -- don't you love these dots? Ever since I went to that craft barn in October chartreuse has been on my mind. These were only a buck a piece at Craft Warehouse. That's a small NW chain. Oh, that reminds me, there is a sign up at a construction site a few miles away from my house -- Hobby Lobby is coming to town! How exciting is that? I used to live in Hobby Lobby country. Then, before my mom passed, every time I visited her I visited Hobby Lobby. I can hardly wait until it opens. It won't make it by Christmas, though.
These are from a craft fair. Isn't the tag cute? I need to learn how to do stitchery.
Then, from JoAnn's, half price, primitive distressed candy canes. Very cute I think.
But these are even cuter! Resin, but really nice deep colour. And cute hooks. A little spendier though, so just got a few. 3 of course, following the rule of 3.
