Stitched Mitten and Sycamore Farms

We are inching closer to Christmas. How is your stress level?  I hope it's nonexistent!
Let it go.  That has been my goal this year.  Do what ever you have to do to cut the stress out of the holidays and just ENJOY time with your family and friends.
I have listened to Christmas music more, lit more candles, made more hand made gifts, got together with more with friends, and made a donation to a charity that is special to me. All of those things are important to me make me happy.
 I've make a conscious  effort to not stress about getting a million things done, and focus on whats important to me.
 I think it's hard for some of us to say.."hey, if it doesn't get done, it's ok".  But.. really... it is OK!

So.... turn up that Christmas music, grab a cup of coffee and put your feet up.

Today I thought I'd share these little mitten ornaments I worked on this year.
Again... another de-stresser for me is hand stitching.  So I've doing a lot more of it.

Need some Christmas Music to listen to while you're here? This is what I'm listening to as I write.

Talking about time with friends....... we had company yesterday.  These little cuties and their mommy and daddy were here for a visit.  I am so blessed to have them in my life. I love that they call me Grandma Vicki and  love that their parents let them be such a special part of my life.

Merry Christmas Lyla and Henry!  Grandma Vicki loves you

Time with my sis, is another thing that is at the top of my list of things I love it do.  She and I just always have a great time together, no matter what we do.  The only thing that could make our time together any better, would be if your other sis who lives in Florida was here to go on little adventures with us.
Here are some photos of when we went to Sycamore Farms ( which is like Junkstock).

So many beautiful things to look at. The crafty side of us is intrigued  by all the creativity, and the vintage lover in us has plenty to take in also. 

Lot of fun things going on as it was an extremely nice day for December in Nebraska.

What did I come home with?  Here are a couple of things I got. This sweek little basket....

and another vintage santa mug to add to my collection.

It was a beautiful day from beginning to end. This is what we woke to, you we had a gorgeous drive.

This will probably be my last blog post before Christmas, so I wish you all a wonderful Christmas!

 Enjoy, Enjoy , Enjoy!

Oh MyVicki, I love the little mittens. Your glasses cases are great and I may need to order on that is slim, like three inches or so wide! You always amaze me with your talents. Those babies are adorable and they have the most beautiful eyes. I hope all is and stays well with you for Christmas and you take care of that foot after the holidays! Sending love and Merry Christmas wishes to you and the whole family!
