Calif Christmas - 3

After leaving the Gold Country, we headed to Patty’s house.  She was hosting our party this year so her house was all decked out. She’s also hosting her extended family (all 27 of them) on Christmas Day, so she pulled out all the stops!


I love seeing all her decorations. She changes them around from year to year so sometimes, they become new to me because I might have missed them in previous years.  



Love the chalkboard.  It always has a festive greeting on it.








The pillow in front is a pattern by Country Stitches called Season’s Blessings.  It has a series of 4 patterns.  


Santas and snowmen everywhere.




These are all from the Eddie Walker collection.   Unfortunately, she isn’t designing anymore.   We all loved collecting them.


This was made for Patty by Janet a couple of years ago.   Sorry, I don’t know the pattern.  



I love the simplicity of a few candy canes in a jar tied in burlap.    The white bottle brush tree just sets it off nicely.


Can you see Santa’s “bum” in the next picture?   He’s really searching for that perfect gift to leave.   LOL




Do you notice the berries in the strainer?    I never saw them when I was actually looking at the tree in person, but there they were when I snapped the pic.    Fun.


I always love what Patty does in this transom window shelf.  



So, that’s Patty’s house in all it’s wonder before we moved in and destroyed it.   haha.    Not really, but we sure did have fun at the party.   Those pictures to follow.    Maybe I’ll finish off the houses with mine next.   


Hugs, Anne

What a treat to see all the holiday decor done so well. And with many hand-made things in the mix. I want to come visit all your friends next year.
