A Good Thing ~

We returned from a nice trip to the Arizona north country. In this post, I'll upload a couple photos and a couple little projects for the holidays.
It's good to post again. We've been busy with the kids and doing a few projects around the
Bryce Canyon ~~Not too bad for a little Nikon huh?

Natural Bridge.

Little cabin built into a rock.

Zion N. Park

Simple projects

Button tree for the holidays.
I used a cardboard cone for thread or yarn, purchased on Ebay,
lots of vintage buttons and satin ribbon.
For the pedestal I glued an old butter pat to a
crystal candel holder.

Glass tealight holders purchased at Dollar Tree,
vintage sheet music, vintage watch faces and a little burlap. I use battery tealights.
Hope you are having an awesome fall.
Take care blog friends!
