I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 51years.

The North wind is cold today and the sky is overcast but at least it's not raining.  I dressed warmly and put on a hat and scarf as well and went outside to finish decorating my pine branches with Dollar Store plastic balls. I used some florist wires to attach the balls on the branches and the bows as well.  It needs more balls in the back but at least  the front  is decorated for now. I was thinking of putting some lights in it but I had enough of the cold for now.... I know... I'm a wimp when it comes to cold.

 That's it for my blog for today because I want some time to hook a bit this evening.  Have a great midweek everyone and thanks for stopping by.  JB


  1. A lovely inviting entrance to your home. Guess it's cold everwhere altho not to bad here - the wind has subsided. I'm anxious to see more of your rug.

  2. It looks so pretty. I love the little Christmas trees by the front door. Have a wonderful time today staying warm and hooking.

  3. very christmas! It says welcome. I need to get back to the rug frame.

  4. Very festive Julia. Doris is right, it looks very inviting and welcoming. And we know there are lots of smiling snowmen to greet you on the other side of the door.

  5. Thank you girls for all your warm comments. I changed the stiff bow for a more flowing one to match the arrangement on the left.. Now my work is done, I'm off hooking and will check your blogs in turn later on. Hugs. JB
