Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Snowball Ornaments

I found these decorative balls at the $$ Store a few weeks ago. I thought they were rather cute, but had no idea what I would do with them. Then, a few days later I picked up a package of clear Christmas balls at the second hand store.

Put them together and this is what I came up with:
Snow-Ball filled ornaments!
Into the clear balls I tossed in about 30 mini-snowballs.

Then I capped them with the silver tops. Pretty already. Bu they need more!


How about some ribbon? Oh yeah. Never too much of that at Christmas time. Simple little pre-tied bows that I glued on with the hot glue gun. Then I had some fun. How about red gingham?

Or green with pink mittens?

Or ricrac? I glued this around the middle this time. I like the graphic line it gives.



What do you think? Pretty simple, eh? But perfect for our pink, green, red and blue tree this year!


Please leave a comment - and BECOME A FOLLOWER! I would LOVE that!

  3. Oh gosh, those are some really cute "balls" if you know what I mean. they look like they have some really big chunks of snow inside. Hope to see this at Sunday's Best. Yes, one of my best finds is that big red cone, I had my eye on this for some time, couldn't believe it was still there.
