Merry Christmas!!!

thumbnail-1Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

Thank you for following my blog during our Needful Things and all throughout the year…I can’t wait to see who commented the most this year…There may be a prize!!!

I have a little something for you so you can get started on next year’s gifts/decorating as soon as possible!!!


I purposely did not show you all of the rooms of the house because I wanted somethings to be a surprise/gift…See this fun Ho Ho Ho pillow?  Well, here is the pattern…You can put it on any size pillow you want…

Merry Christmas Ho pattern

I just used one of my wonderful Moda Flannels…and yes, we have some in stock…if you have to have the exact one I used…also not the the word is reversed for fusible applique. IMG_6917The cute sheets are from Pottery Barn and can be ordered HERE...and the quilt is an antique…and we will work on a pattern for that…but then…my bathroom needed just a bit of Christmas cheer as well..

I hope you all have a wonderful day and here is our first picture of “little man” and “baby O” with Papa and MiMi…
