I'm slowly working on getting our home all decked out for Christmas. I decided to use my collection of vintage glass ornaments on our living room tree this year, and I love it! There is just something more beautiful about these old ornaments made in the USA, Poland, West Germany, and not China!
Today, I made a few sparkly felted wool wintery trees.
Using leftover 2" strips from a felted wool sweater, I cut a fringe. I hot glued the pieces of wool to a cardboard cone spool, making sure I didn't leave any gaps
and then, voila' a tree!
After a quick spray of glue and a dousing of glitter, they are ready to display with my putz style Christmas village. But, until I get to decorate for Christmas, my Walnut Ridge bunny will be enjoying the pastel forest.
As I've been working with burlap and adding black accents here and there, I keep thinking how pretty a black and cream Christmas would be. My mother thinks I'm crazy... whatever! Can't you picture how gorgeous it could be?
This evening I made carmel corn, and it tastes so good!
What a wonderful snack for a blustry fall evening.
18-20 Cups popcorn
2 Cups brown sugar
2 sticks butter
1/2 C light corn syrup
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
Combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt. Boil for 5 minutes. Stir in soda and flavoring. Pour immediately over popcorn in big roaster. Bake 1 hour at 250 degrees stirring every 15 minutes. Cool on wax paper. Store in an air tight container.
