Still Here! :-)
(have ya missed me?)

It's been a week full of a whole lot of nothing and then some. :-) That doesn't make sense, does it? LOL

The highlights of my week:

Dogsitting "Buster the Dog" for three days
Finished "The Night Before Christmas" stitchery
Quilted and bound my Secret Santa gift
Quilted and bound my Trees on the Table topper
Stitched and made a cute "Fresh Baked Cookies" pillow

Started Christmas Decorating but I have a couple of things working against me (I was not born with the Decorating Gene and several years ago all (yes all) of our Christmas decorations were stolen so the desire to decorate is very not very strong.

I don't usually decorate with a theme however this year I couldn't resist decorating our kitchen in a "Fresh Baked Cookies" (Gingerbread Men) theme and I'm loving it!

I decorated two trees in my kitchen with mini cookie cutters and mini cooking utensils.



Don't want to bore you so I'll share more pictures later this week! :-)



I promise to return tomorrow to post winners of my "Rant Surprise Giveaway".

Thanks for caring and for visiting my blog!

In Friendship!!!!!!

Hi darlene, for someone who "doesn't have the decorating gene" your decorating looks GREAT! Barb from Ocean waves quilts.

Vicky said...

You definitely have a decorating gene! The trees and the pillow are just wonderful! Oh, and, yes, I did miss you!! (Hugs)

Hanne said...

You have been busy Darlene :-)
Lovely Christmas decorations.

Belvie said...

A week of nothing???? I would just like to know what you call a busy week...because to me, that list makes you look very busy!

I love those kitchen trees and the cute little gringerbread stitchery under them. Mmmmm! love the smell of fresh baking cookies in the kitchen.

Mar said...

I wish I could get that much nothing done in a month!!!
The tree and gingerbread man are adorable, so glad you are back.

Nicole said...

All your decorations were stolen? That is just the worst sort of karma. Whoever did that will only get coal in their stocking forever.

Angie said...

Cute, cute, cute, Dazey!! I adore your trees and that gingerbread man pillow!! :> That pillow would make an awesome Christmas presie!! ;>

Beth said...

LOL Darlene, I think you have done great! I love those little trees. I was also born without the decorating gene. In fact my Christmas tree is prelit and predecorated and all I do is put it up and my daughter fluffs it and voila it's Christmas LOL.....For some reason our stockings are missing so that is giving me a kick in the rear to make new stocking for us.

Glad to see that you hae been very productive!!

May Britt said...

Nadine said...

Who would steal Christmas decorations??? I hope they got coal that year. Love your new little kitchen decor -- very cute!

Juliann in WA said...

Of course we missed you but it sounds like you have been busy. Love the cookie tree idea. I am getting out decorations today.

Rabbit Stitchings said...

well thats just cuteness doing the trees in your kitchen with gingerbread theme and cookie cutters etc!!!

Dawn said...

Oh how cute! And I love the pillow!

Mary said...

We left all our decorations in GA at the house for the kids. I'll get a small artificial tree and a few things when I get back from VA to make the apartment somewhat festive.

Kim said...

Your decorating looks great! I always have some sort of theme in my head when I'm decorating. Or maybe those are just the voices?

Nan said...

Oh Darlene - your gingerbread man is the cutest little guy! It's good to know you've been sewing - that'll bring a smile to your face when nothing else will, so I think, anyhoo!
I haven't gotten around to decorating, but I have seen so much to inspire me, including your lovely vignette! I'm sorry all your decorations were stolen - who would do such a dastardly thing? It gives you a chance to get all new Christmas treasures!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Very cute little trees there. Love the table decor you got going on with the gingerbread guys.

atet said...

Those trees are just adorable! And seeing all this decorating going on is making me feel like a slacker!

Erin said...

Love it all!

Kim said...

I was in Kohl's last night and when I saw the line of gingerbread dishware, I sure thought of you! Check them out if you have a Kohl's in your area.

Wendy said...

It looks to me like you've been very busy. I love the gingerbread man pillow and kitchen trees are such a great idea, they look wonderful all decorated.
