Christmas in Calif

Last weekend I flew to CA for my annual Christmas party with my longtime pals.    We have so much fun and I love getting to see their houses all decked out for the holidays.  

 

Of course, the first stop after landing in Sacramento has to be Panera Bread.   This year my plane landed at 8am, so off we went for a breakfast sandwich.  My first time there at that hour of the day.

Then it was off to Janet’s house to pick her up.  She always has the cutest decorations.   I always leave there wanting to go out and make or buy everything she has!

This tiny bowl had the littlest spools I’ve ever seen.   My finger is there for reference.

And check out this darling snowman on a spool.  I fell in love with this guy.

I made this house quilt for her many years ago.  I love that she decorates with it.   Why didn’t I make myself one?

All those cute snowman decorations. Nice. I especially like the snowman with a yellow/gold star on his chest and in a wire basket. Is that punch needle?
