There is something about this time of year that makes my fingers itch to make little pretty things. Do you know that feeling?
We are having a pretty low key Christmas this year but I just couldn't help but make these little ornaments.
The pattern is in my Etsy shop and on Craftsy , but you my dear blog friend, you just click HERE for your FREE DOWNLOAD.
Now the only problem I have with these two, is we don't have a tree to hang them on. The story behind that goes like this...
We bought a tiny but beautiful little spruce for our first Christmas in Australia. It sat in its little pot and I had great aspirations on its behalf of it one day, growing up to become a big beautiful Christmas tree. We cared for it and watered it, kept it in the shade and managed to keep it alive despite the not very Christmas tree friendly climate that we live in. One day, our sweet little boy then aged two came upon a pair of secateurs and decided to help with a bit of gardening. The first thing to go? Yes, you guessed it - the top of the Christmas tree! Following that we got a tree that would pack away neatly in a box. I don't know about you, but there is something about trees that pack away into boxes that is not quite right. It did the job but I never liked it. So last year I swore it would be the last time it ever went up, thus we don't (yet) have a tree this year.
Since the ornaments have no tree to hang from at my place – what about at yours?
* I am giving them away to a good home, so if you think they will be happy on your tree, or somebody you know needs a bit of cheering up, leave a comment below.
* Since we are so close to Christmas and I would like for the ornaments to arrive at their new home before the 25th so we have to make it snappy. I will draw the winner on the morning of Wednesday 18th December (Aust CST)
* I will announce the winner on Wednesday, so keep an eye out. If you win, you will need to contact me asap with your shipping information so that they can be posted as soon as possible.
Good luck and have a lovely week.
