Okay, I know the picture isn't very good since I had to take it inside with my flash, but I just finished these ice skates from a pattern by Tennessee Ridge Primitives and they are so dang cute I had to take a picture of them! It's not often I make something that I fall so completely in love with but these skates are going to be mine, I can't stand to part with them! They are absolutely prim perfect for the coming holidays. I'll take some more pictures tomorrow that will do them more justice.
It's been snowing all day here, not a lot but the ground is white and there is a nip in the air. It was a perfect day to stay indoors with the fire crackling and make some Christmas cards and these adorable skates. The snow and the cold put me in a nostalgic, holiday spirit so I lite my coal oil lamps
and my glass candle lamps
on the fireplace mantel. A few Christmas decorations are starting to make their appearance, it's beginning to look a little bit like Christmas around here :O)
Hope you had a wonderful day and talk to you again soon, wishing you a peaceful and restful evening.
