Winter Warmth of Nymph Slippers

Thanks to Linda & Jonathan Sawyer from SawyerCeramics for the feature of my hand crocheted Nymph slippers in their treasury of warmth.

Christmas Bibs really dress up the occasion

Here you will find a couple of  bibs to love during this Christmas season.

Finished measurement is 8"x 9"
Santa's elves are really excited that they found the heirloom reproduction like the Pinafore Bib featured in the photos above! No Santa's helper should be without one! Measurements of this Christmas special are 11" from neck to tail and 9" across. Eyelet surrounds the neck and is fed with satin ribbon for embellishment. Frills in White and Green surround the entire bib. The back of this bib fastens with pretty Red buttons and a label from the artist is attached. I crochet these using vintage thread that came from a community antique shop here in Cayce, SC. The threads are not colorfast. Best worn over the same colors or dark colors and washed separate from other laundry in cold water.

I Hand crocheted this absorbent cotton crochet bib with popcorn stitch and lacy armholes and border. It Snaps in the back. Comes in White or Ecru thread. Specially handmade from a retired antique pattern it is made from number 10 cotton crochet thread to fit babies from 3-6 months. The pinafore design makes keeping baby covered during feeding sessions a breeze. Also great as a photo prop! Easy care instructions: Machine wash and dry. Not too pretty to wear, stains are easy to remove by soaking in denture tablets and washing as normal. Sturdy , soft cotton is sure to be an heirloom through a couple of generations. Best of all made by a Grandmother right here in the good old USA!

A taste of Christmas!

As we enter fall and have all of the holiday seasons ahead.  I especially look forward to the taste and smells that come with them.  Pumpkin spices for fall and Gingerbread is my favorite for Christmas. 
My favorite flavor of Christmas is Gingerbread. I hope that this collection of Gingerbread creations will leave a pleasant memory on your tasteful buds. Don't forget the elves are watching!

I especially love the gingerbread doorhanger that Charlotte Collistro Brown created.  The heart measures approximately 5" tall x 5" wide. 
This decorative door hanger comes with a CharlotteStyle hang tag. 
Charlotte made the heart from a beautiful Christmas candy, cookies and goodies print cotton fabric.She attached the lovely beading lace, with red satin ribbon woven through, on the front.She sewed the little crocheted gingerbread man onto the heart.

The bow is olive green velvet and the hanger is red satin ribbon. I adorned the bow knot front and back with red satin ribbon roses.

Beautiful Decorative Heart - Hang this heart on a door or cupboard knob. Also, this heart would look great on a wreath or Christmas tree.

All of Charlotte's items are stuffed with new polyester fiber.
This item is not suitable for small children.
