Making the November Ornament

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Peace and quiet on the home front.....
Well, almost until Vlad decided to act weird and took two pieces of our red fabric from our The Ornament Girl November kit, and called himself "vuldeer", now I ask you - is that weird or what?

Then, all of a sudden.....
I'm not sure if it happened because Vlad put on the Santa hat or it was just time for disaster to strike.

Here is the sweet little woolen tree that I made, the pattern/kit is offered by
1894 CottonwoodHouse
It is adorned with rusty jingle bells which I attached with coffee stained string.

My New Brother

It's Funny Friday
by Vlad

Sweet Prudence asked me to write her post today so I can introduce you to my new little brother,

Charles C. Chilly.  We think he will want to be called "Charlie", he's thinking about that right now.

We hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving, we certainly did and now we can enjoy all those leftovers, this is my favorite, all those turkey sandwiches to make and enjoy.

Back to my little brother, he was designed and made by the very talented and lovely
Wendy Marro
 and I know Miss Wendy would love for you to drop by her studio and introduce yourself, her designs are over the top in wonderful.

Wishing you a wonderful Friday, you know that I love you all dearly and Prudence will be back next Friday.  Now it's back to decorating Christmas trees.  Yes, I said TREES, all 15 of them, some small, some not so small, some with only lights, others with lights and decorations.  I'll take you on a tour just before Christmas.

Vlad , Charlie too.

Counting The Days

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Oh my mohair, time is flying by, it's almost Thanksgiving.  I love our tradition for turkey day.  M&D get up, Mom showers and then fixes a light breakfast for us.  Mom gets the turkey ready to go into the oven, she begins roasting it just before the parade starts.

At 9 o'clock the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade begins and we are all settled in to watch.  About 11 o'clock Mom brings the snacks and Dad makes the Mimosa's (giggle), he always makes me put my nose on the opened bottle so the bubbles tickle my nose.  Mom brings out her clam dip with veggie sticks and we have our goodies.
After the parade is over me and Mom start working in the kitchen.  Dad gets the potatoes ready, I take care of getting the cranberry sauce all dished, and Mom mixes up the green bean casserole.
The day is very special, we reflect on all the past Thanksgiving's we have spent together and with family.  
After all is put away and everyone has a full tummy we settle in to watch Miracle on 34th Street.  It has been a tradition for as long as I can remember.  I snuggle in on Mom's lap, all cozy in my blankie.  Molly Brown and Jessie get cozy on their big, fluffy doggy beds, and Dad begins the movie.
I hope you are enjoying the final countdown to Thanksgiving too.

Last big project..........

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence
Hi, Everybeary.
Mom said that this is the last big project in the house.  
 Okay, this WAS what the fireplace looked like, it was awful, ugly, made the family room look cold and uninviting.  So once again, Dad to the rescue, he designed the new hearth, choose the stone work and our contractor took a piece of old Spalted Cherry tree and made the mantle.

The old...
There was an opening above the mantle, that was where the telly was.....first we just closed it up until we were ready to redo the entire wall.
Hearth and mantel in place.  That piece of drywall was where a television was when we came to look at the house, we all laughed.  So, bye bye hole over the mantle.  Zip.
 View from the Family Room.  Yes, the porch is 30 feet above the backyard, but the front of the house is at ground level.  It's called "living in the mountains".  (Giggle)
From the middle French door.
Molly Brown and Jessie is the new fireplace.  It changed the room completely.

Hope you enjoyed the tour.
Have a wonderful weekend.

That was my Halloween picture with our October ornie.  Yes, I was secured on the railing but the ornie wasn't.  Giggle.

Happy Halloween

Happy Almost Halloween
As I mentioned, Mom is writing a book, here is a line or two from my Bedtime Story

Happy Weekend.
