Its not Christmas without linen!

Linen at Christmas time looks so beautiful and I dreamt up so many decorative uses for it last year that I plan to do this year. Linen stockings for one to go with the wrapping for this year.

Linen napkins with fresh greenery to jazz up the table and keep it fresh looking for our warm Christmas day.
I would love to have some linen grain sack cushions to fill up our chaise which will be getting moved outside this year...lets hope it doesn't rain!

...and I plan to make a big version of my hand towels this year to use as a table runner. I am just realising now that I am going to be extremely busy this year - whats new!

  1. If I could only figure out a way to:

    1. never sleep
    2. clone myself
    3. Stay off-line

    I could get a small percentage of all the things I want to accomplish done!

    'till then....back to my Fantastic Mr. Fox ornament! Love your blog!
