Deck The Halls Sunday!

December is almost here!
My tree is looking a little less "Charlie Brown" and a little more festive. Yay!
I have quite a ways to go before it is full and truly ready for Christmas.
My theme this year is Jane Austen, and I am really loving it!

 I am working on lights, letters, music, and other adornments....

Here is what I have been working on....

An improved ornament from last week, I am still working out the design on this one.

Here is my latest ornament. I love how this one turned out.


I used two different snow flake punches,
vintage beads and the same image as the other ornament. 
The back of the ornament is a copy of a letter Jane wrote to her brother.


 I am working on holiday ATCs with this image of Jane as well.
I am really enjoying playing with paper, old lace and netting!

I am not making all my holiday items with the same image of Jane LOL!!!
Next up comes an ornament with one of Jane's homes on it.

What are you creating for the holidays? 
Are you having FUN????


If you would like to share what you are doing for the holidays, either decor or gift, just link up below and we will come and see what you are up to in your Santa's workshop!
Hugs,
Terri

I love your Jane Austen-themed tree :) :) That's really beautiful and the blue and silver is wonderful :) I'll probably make some knittted mitten ornaments :) Have a good weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;)

Marlynn said...

This is really really cool. I love your idea. I am debating rather to decorate or not. Will make up my mind in a week or so. Love that you will be using her homes too. Hmmmmm, are you trying to inspire me to decorate? Larcy already started hers today. Hugs, girlfriend!

Your tree and decorations are looking lovely!
Looking forward to seeing the rest of your vintage style ornaments :)

Catherine said...

Your tree looks great. I love the ornaments! What could be better than Jane Austen? ...Hrmmmm Mr. Darcy!!!!

Jan said...

Like Marlynn, I haven't made up my mind about decorating either. I'll be gone for awhile and by the time I get back, it will only be a week till Christmas.

SO, it seems you are the decorator of the month around here! I love your ornaments and the new one with the netting is so pretty. The color is a nice contrast to the blue ones!

For a 'chuck brown tree', it's looking more like French Pastry!!!

Hugs
Jan
