Wheelie Wednesday - Scarf and Ornies

 Hi everyone!  It's me, Francesca!
While mom was in Florida, she spent her nights watching TV and crocheting me a new scarf.  Doesn't the color blend so well with my furs and check out my hat.  My hat belongs to a baby doll that gram gave to mom.  The dolly was one that gram had as a child!  Wasn't that nice of Bright Eyes to loan it to me?  And it matches perfectly with my new scarf!
 Mom came home with Christmas ornies that gram made and also ones that gram's mom made.  See the Santa right in front of my nose?  Gram's mom cross-stitched him and see the green Christmas tree right below Santa?  Gram cross-stitched that one. 
We love hand-made ornies on our tree. They are so special.
 Gram's mom made the Father Christmas ornie too.
 And the angel that's kinda too close to my nose!
And great-grandma made this checkered Santa too.

Can you kinda tell that we are Snoopy lovers here?!
 Gram made the tree ornie and gram's mom made the soldier ornie. 
Do you have special ornies on your tree that you want to share with us?

See you all next Wednesday.

Friends forever,

We moved our special ornaments to the ornament tree. It would have been just wrong to put them on the weird little tree that momma brought home.

Your scarf is lovely.

Your new scarf is pawfect with your furs, Francesca! We looove all your ornies! Since our tree is ceramic, we don't have any special ornaments, but we do have some framed counted stitch that our mom's mom made! They are very special to us since our grandma is up in heaven now!

We love handmade ornaments or special ones that we get on trips. It makes the tree so much more personal.

We love older ornaments too. We have some that muzzer has had for a long, long time, and some that she made in a crafty period, and then we have about 50 ornies that belong to our sissies, one for every year!

I'm inspired Frans! I may not do knitting but Christmas ornies I can try! I love that Christmas tree mini pillow!

Next year perhaps then. I'm now engrossed in a cross-stitch project. :)

Envying your Christmas tree. We're not pitching any this year, and the room feels very unchristmasy. Hahah.

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

We liked looking at the ornaments on your tree. Mama also loves Snoopy and Woodstock and has some home made ornaments made by my grandmother. We did not put up a tree this year because we were not home to enjoy it.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
