Thanks to two talented daughters, I have a lot of Christmas handiwork to enjoy.  Over the past couple of years the oldest daughter has made primitive Santas….

The youngest daughter made some craft decorations when she was a teenager …..

It’s so nice to look around the house and see all these beautiful things that the girls have spent so many hours making.

  1. My mother would display my handiwork, just like you display the lovely things your daughters have created for you. It must be a wonderful, warm feeling to see and touch their gifts from the heart.

    I especially like those Santas as I have a collection of Santa figurines.

    And that wreath is so pretty and unique. I’m hoping your daughter believes copying is a compliment because I’d like to try my hand at making my own.
