One of my “on a break” projects. I’ve had more fun with this! Wish I’d finished it in time for Christmas. But….Merry Christmas beautiful people!

Thanks to my used-to-be boss, Sue Cox, owner of Simons (and all the lovely Simonette’s) for gifting me all that’s broken to play with. Yay!!!

  2. Ok. This is brilliant, Cindy: “…this “peace” you have created.” Amazing. ❤️ Thank You!!! 🤗❤️😊We may well leave it out ! It’s been living on the fireplace hearth for over a month now as I contemplate it and tweak here and there. It’s VERY large, though. 🤣Of course. 🤣Almost 3 feet high so it practically takes up the whole space. But we’re enjoying it! Huge hugs Your way!!! ❤️❤️❤️


  3. My thought is to find a nook to display it all year. It’s too colorful, pretty and you can celebrate all year. Just a thought. I love this “peace” you have created. ❣️

  4. Thank You, Aimer!!! I totally can. Still making final touches and then may put it on my site for sale….or we may keep it. It’s really sweet and we will totally use it every year if we do! 🤗❤️😊
