I haven't been very good about posting here. I'm surprised I can remember how :) So here I go...... Seems like a good time for a little Christmas in July:)
My plan each Christmas is to come up with at least one new idea to include in my Christmas decorations. Last year I wanted to add something unusual and fun, so I came up with the idea of climbing bears for my main tree. I really wanted them to look as if they were climbing up the tree in search of honey or some other tasty treat. Since only the back of them would show in the tree, I made their rear ends only. I had one on each side of my tree competing for the honey at the top of the tree. .
Brown bears seemed like a good choice since I live in Minnesota and they can be found here. Black and white bears would be fun as well. It always depends a little on what materials I can find.
I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think or what great Christmas ideas you have had.

I love updating and reusing things I already have. What a great way to give little face-lift to a room just in time for spring. Now to find time to make the burlap drapes I have planned:)

Summer has gone quickly, but as much as I love it, I do enjoy fall. Especially the last few beautiful days we have had. The leaves are beginning to turn and their colors inspired me to make a variety of pumpkins for my Etsy shop. Some I have kept and displayed in a metal basket on my dining room table setting a new mood for the season.
Enjoy the colors of fall while they are here.

Summer days are getting shorter reminding us that fall is not far away. While summer will be missed, it is a great opportunity to switch things up a bit around my house. (Don't tell my husband... he thought we were done decorating a year after we moved in)
Thinking of color themes, rounding up objects around the house, possibly picking up a new item or two to complete the plan is half the fun. As exciting as it is, I will wait until September to make these changes. (After all, I am still enjoying summer and will miss it when it's gone).
Here is a picture of my dining room and how it's decorated for summer. Come September I will post my fall look.

Summer is passing by quickly. I'm savoring it as I know it won't be long before the cold of winter returns.
In honor of summer, I have made a cheery, summer purse. It is created from a mint-condition vintage table cloth and features beaded handles as well as a long removable.
Enjoy your summer and, hopefully, my new purse will keep that summer feeling around for a while.
