Swap Ornie and more Photos!!

The Primitive and Folk Artist had a ornie swap and my partner was Karen from Buttons in the Attic.
I received these stunning stars from her.  I showed my daughter and she said, "I know you didn't sew these."  When I ask her how she could tell she said they were too perfect to be anything I would sew!!
Yes, you know how I feel about needle and thread.  This photo does not do justice to how wonderful these are!! Check out her shop by clicking on the stars and her blog by clicking here.
They are FABULOUS!!  Thank you Karen!

As promised from earlier more photos of Christmas at our house.  We have close to 30 trees small and large.  The next two photos are the two large trees that we put presents under.

All the shelves have decorations on them too!

A couple of tin trees I painted.

I love this church and poinsettias scene that I painted from a seminar a couple of years back.
Well time to get my daughter to school.  I hope every one enjoys their day!
