Last Minute Projects & a ChristmasTour

It's been busy, busy here and no matter how often I have wanted to post I've always run out of time.  But I am finally here with a few last minute touches and projects.

I started my first project with a wooden stocking shape my hubby had cut out.

I have a book of vintage sheet music that is falling apart.

So I removed some pages and Mod Podged them onto the stocking.

Then I embellished it with some lace, chip board letters, and a book page rosette.

I also embellished some wooden snowflakes to add to packages for hubby's coworkers.

How beautiful! Thank you for the tour of your home! I'm afraid our decor stayed pretty simple this year. For some reason, I don't really get "in the mood" for Christmas until it gets cold. I especially love your small trees for the sitting area! Thank you for sharing this at Wednesday's Adorned From Above Blog Hop! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
