My Christmas Banner

Just a little Christmas Banner, I made...

It hangs on the entryway curtain,
         from darling little clothes pins,
                each decorated with mittens, stockings, or ice skates.

 Each letter has an object representing that in

C for Christ Child (this was made by one of my students)
H for Holly

R for Rudolph the one eyed Red Nosed Reindeer! (made by one of my kids)

I for Icicle, brrr...see it right near the middle?

Then there is
S for Santa Suit, so cute!

 T is for Tree, of course.

After I spelled out CHRIST...I made a count down with                numbers, but kept on with the objects...

M is for mistletoe
A is for angel
S is for stuffed stocking...(a 1st  ornament for one of my babies)

Now, that spells CHRISTMAS, for me, 
fun, easy,  & sentimental!

Merry Christmas
HIS banner over me is LOVE,

I was hoping to join some of the Christmas Home Tours, with my whole house, we will see how that goes! 
until then go check out these great parties!

I absolutely adore it, Lezlee! I love the sheet music background, the glitter, and all the darling trinkets hanging from the ribbon. An overall beautiful composition!

Happy Holidays, my friend!
