Welcome to my blog. I'm probably very much like all of you who love the needlearts. My life revolves around family, friends, home and all things that help to make for a more contented life. When time allows; cooking, gardening, decorating, and collecting are my joys. I look forward to sharing all of these things with you. I also hope to keep you up to date on what is going on at Homespun Elegance, in regard to the needlework designs and the "Plain & Fancy Wares" that we offer.

Wishing you "Many Happy Stitches".

Think I'm Finished!

Good Evening Every One!
I have been at it for nearly two days, but I think
I am finally finished putting away the 
Christmas decorations.  I dearly love it when
the house is so festive, but it is a real ordeal
to end the holidays like this.
The only thing left is the greenery outdoors.
It is still so pretty and green, so I like to
enjoy it for a few more months.  I've embellished
my side door sway with a great metal snowflake.
I still have to decorate my front door wreath.

 Side door - just cannot throw it away
when it still looks good.
 This is  my winter window in the daylight.

 Window at night.

~ Lanterns~Snowmen~Pine Cones~Redbirds~
Pine Topiaries~
Everything that says winter!
Hope you have had a great weekend.  I'll be heading to
Richmond in the AM to see my sweet Avery.
Can't wait!
Many Happy Stitches,
