Having a house for sale at this time of year is both good and bad. The good news is that the house looks very pretty with twinkling lights and fresh greenery. The bad news is that you have people traipsing through for showings and open houses so the house always has to be in perfect order even with all the baking, wrapping and entertaining that goes on during December.
An offer came in that we are in the process of negotiating so hopefully we will have a sold sign out front in the next few days. I will be super relieved if all goes well as I am getting a little tired of keeping the house like a show home. If we sell I am going to go "all lazy" for a few days and leave the beds unmade, underwear on the floor and I might even do something really crazy like cook fish!!
Another favourite decoration made by one of the boys. The little hat made from a newborn sock is adorable.
Turn a tube sock inside out and add about a cup of dried beans to toe and then fill with cotton batting.
Tie off top with a piece of string and hot glue on a baby sock and pom pom for hat.
Tie neck with ribbon or strip of fabric.
Glue on carrot nose made from felt and make eyes and mouth with a sharpie.
Glue on buttons.
Family room mantle.
The snowmen are hand made and each one is wearing a coat made from sheep's wool with cranberry buttons.
Eating way too much sweet stuff, but mmm, these were goooood.
