The prettiest street in August!

This is a street not far from where I live and, at the moment, with the cherry blossom out, it is so beautiful.

I drive past it everyday on my way to school and every time I see it I think how pretty it looks.

With Spring in the air, it is time to start thinking about the Christmas projects I would like to have ready soon for the website.

These are my mini stockings. They are perfect to hang around the house or on the tree for a touch of shabby. They will be popped in the "Christmas" section of Our Shabby Cottage soon.

Cameo roses and lace mini stockings

Santa mini stockings

I finished this today. I thought it might be nice in the shop. I covered some small canvas's with some of my favourite Christmas fabrics, added the red and white trim as the hanger then finished it off with red ribbon, felt ivy and three big red jingle bells.

I love Santa's rosey cheeks!
Only a few days left of gloomy old Winter and the beginning of Spring. I can smell it in the air!
Three cheers for warmer weather..Hippip Hooray, Hippip Hooray, Hippip Hooray!!!!
Hope everyone out there is well. We are all on the mend. Master 7 has been home for days now and still not quite right. Fingers crossed he is better soon.

Kathryn. XXXOOO

What a beautiful street scape. I saw one very similar the other day - you don't live in Bunninyong do you? I just LOVE the Spring blossoms and are very over Winter.
