Feathering the Christmas Nest

I know you are all busy feathering your Christmas nests. The truth is that I haven't put up the first decoration. Well except I hung some of the ornaments from my Silver Bella felt ornament swap on the wire dress form in my studio. But that's it for me. We're supposed to head out to buy a tree tonight and I'm spending the day cleaning out corners before I bring up the holiday cheer and start to rearrange.

I have much to share with you this week: treasures, journals, aprons, studio pictures and who knows what else. I hope you'll meet me back here soon.


  1. looking forward to seeing any &all that you have to share!


  2. Jen, I've not got one feather in my nest yet. Normally, I do have it all done by this time, but I still have pumpkins out!

    I'm not feeling it yet this year, and I don't want to force it. :0/

    I'll surely be back to see what you have up your sleeve this week!

  3. Hi Jen,
    I haven't started decorating either.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what you will share next!

  4. Were we supposed to clean corners before we started decorating? I missed that memo.
    Can't wait to see what you have in store for us this week!

  5. I'm doing much of the same... cleaning so I can decorate for Christmas, Can't wait to see all the feathering you've been doing.

  6. Hi Jen

    Thanks for entering my give away..I'll be announcing the winner on Wednesday.

    I haven't begun decorating as yet either...I will be traveling early December to see my grandson and it will have to wait till I go back home. It will a busy month but so joyful.

  7. Hi Jen! Trying to catch up on your blog posts! My computer was next to dead and then finally died. But it forced me to buy a new one and now it's SOOO much easier online for me. My old one was a dinosaur!!!
    Glad to "see" you again and Silver Bella looked like SO much fun! I'm so jealous! :)

  8. just say the word ... always fun to see your projects.


  9. I just love these adorable ornaments. Every year I look so very forward to making and exchanging ornaments. Btw, maybe we should try to do a quick swap - lmk.

  10. I stumbled across your blog through another and really enjoy it. I was surprised to see you are from Fishers- I am from Zionsville! Thanks for sharing your decorating ideas.

  11. The ornaments from the swap are beautiful -- love them on the dress form!

    Looking forward to seeing all of your treasures.

  12. Hi Jen! I love your wire dress form all decked out with lovely ornaments!! Can't wait to see what elso you do :)

  13. Hi Jen,

    Thank you for stopping by. I am looking forward to what you have to share! Love that wire dress form.

    Kindredly, Lynne Laura

  14. Well, if decorating occurs too early, it doesn't look as fresh on Christmas morning (or maybe that's my excuse for not getting started...)

  15. yay for Christmas decorating preparation!! I'm the same way! Things need to be clean and tidy before any big changes in the house!!

  16. Hi Jen,
    I LOVE your wire dress form! It is gorgeous! :) And don't feel alone~ I have barely started decorating for Christmas yet! I still have some of my fall decor out!

    I can't wait to see what you have to share! :) I hope your week is going well! :)

  17. Great idea for all the ornaments. I wish I would have seen all your goodies up close!!!

  18. Hi Jen :)

    I can't wait to hear all about your news! We're going to get our tree on Saturday and to me the house just isn't finished until the tree arrives ;)


  19. I am with you, very slowly getting the decorations out. I'm totally dragging this year for some reason.....
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my recent post, Jen. I really appreciate it!
    Happy nest feathering!

  20. Hey Jen! It's me, Ida Mae, from Silver Bella. I LOVE how you displayed the felt ornaments on your wire dress form. And that studio of yours is very neat and tidy. Come to my house and help me get mine together. HA

  21. Hi there, I'm new to blogging, so I googled a few of my favorite things "anthropologie, farm, sewing, blog" and voila, it led me here! Google must know what it's talking about, because I have that exact same dress form! lol
    Gonna follow, can't wait to read more, it's lovely here.
    Nice to meet you, Lynea


Thank you for taking the time to say hello today! I always love to hear what you have to say.
