A nice relaxing day around here. I just worked on some new Christmas animals…(I really want to have a Christmas update before baby arrives!) and puttered around the kitchen.  Our neighbor,  in a rather neighborly fashion, brought us a bag of apples from his orchard, so I decided to bake an apple crisp. Why would I cook unnecessary things the day before Thanksgiving, you may ask. Well, because we are actually going somewhere else this year! I've hosted the past couple of years, and am in no physical condition to spend all day on my feet in the kitchen this year. I only have to bake a pumpkin pie tomorrow morning! Woo-hoo!  What will I do all morning??


I also made this little yarn wreath ala Katie Runnels! She has a tutorial in CraftStylish magazine! While this in no way compares to the lovely, perfect wreaths she creates, it was alot of fun to make and I can see these being very addictive! If you haven't seen her gorgeous work, go check it out! Her wreaths are so vintagey and perfect, with such great color combinations. I have yet to decide where I am going to hang it, so, yes, it is just lying on a table right now.


Here is one with belly in the shot. oops!
