Christmas Home Tour--my best friend's home

My best friend has one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen! She has such a knack for accesorizing and can take any ordinary object and make it look fabulous. I love going to her house, I always see something I didn't notice the time before!! I hope you are as inspired as I always am!!!

Do you know what today is?

For as long as I can remember, my daddy would ask me this on December 7.  It's Pearl Harbor Day , of course. I miss him asking me this and a lot of other things as well.

The spirit of Christmas Past

                                                                 Me and Santa!!!
My talented friend Laurie of SewnSews is hosting a linky party for everyone to show their Christmas sewing projects from the past. I can't wait to see all the beautiful projects that everyone has created over the years. I am sure to get lots of inspiration from them!! I would like to invite you to participate and show us the gifts, outfits, or special home decoations you have created!!

This is the first Christmas themed dress I smocked for my daughter. I don't know why I had not smocked her anything for Christmas before this one!!

I don't remember the plate name, but I loved how this dress looked on her!! I don't know what was going on with that pose of my son's, but as I look back, I am grateful that he was so cooperative in these photos!!

This is the bubble I made for my grandson Holt's first Christmas. I saw this in Creative Needle (I miss that magazine) and it has always been one of my favorite things!!

This is a white bishop style dress smocked in Red and bound at the neck and sleeve in red gingham check. The collar is laid over the dress and is detachable. It is made of Swiss embroidered edging.

This dress is an original design, except for the pinafore bib. It is made of black velveteen with a plaid silk dupioni overskirt. The organdy bib is machine embroidered.

Red corduroy a line top and pants, machine appliqued.

Holt's Christmas outfit for his second Christmas. It is the only thing I ever made that his daddy refused to let him wear!!!
