What have you been working on today??...I was working on my work area...let me tell you it was a job because I've been sewing and I had a mess piled everywhere around my table and several feet in front of it...But who would know that now!...It's all ready for Christmas except for some things I'm going to add...I want to make some long stockings to hang in front of my faux fireplace and a few other things and it will be finished...So I thought I'd share some pics of it so far....So what were you doing today??...Now it is time to get working on orders and some swaps...Goodnight everyone!!~~hugs,Jen

I love that you share such great pictures. Santa will be sure to stop at your house and I bet Mrs. Santa will come too.
The gingerbread men look fabulous. Are they for eating or just a "faux" for decorating? wouldn't want to break any teeth ;)
Can't wait to see more. As for me I was finishing up college class work. I would have rather been doing what you were doing. I looks great. Now on to Christmas after finals next week.

Your home always looks so prim perfect!! I especially love how you decorated your the orange slices!!

Where did you get your big bowls? Did you buy them somewhere and re-finish them? Curious...I am trying to find some big ones for my new bowl rack.

Such wonderful pictures! Your faux fireplace is just darling and I agree some long stockings would be the perfect finishing touch. I hope you'll post a pic when you get them put together.
