We have had a great week! Aaron and I celebrated our four year wedding anniversary on Thursday. I can't believe that we have been married for four years! I woke up to breakfast in bed, had flowers delivered to me, and enjoyed a gourmet meal with my little family. It was such a great day.
This delicious dessert is called aebleskiver. Aaron and I LOVE them. We found out that supermarkets sell them around Christmas. They taste like a fried pancake ball.
I have been addicted to making Christmas ornaments the last couple of weeks. Aaron and I didn't bring any of our Christmas decorations from Seattle, so I have had an excuse to craft. (Not that I ever really needed an excuse!)
I found out that two friends, Mhiles and Anne, are just as obsessed with making ornaments. We have spent three full days in Santa's workshop (a.k.a. Anne's art studio). We have had a blast eating snacks and inspiring each other. Ethan is in love with Anne's puppies. Oty, the basset hound, is extremely interested in Ethan's toys and loves to snuggle.
The first ornaments we made were the earless felt horses.
I made the Libery bell and tree from an old MCall's pattern. The snowflakes were Martha's idea.
The owl family is my favorite. We got ideas from Etsy and then created our own spin. The owls and birds are made from felted wool. I stitched the owls together with metallic thread. The eyes are made from vintage mother of pearl buttons.
The birds started this whole ornament obsession. I bought some felted wool weeks back and couldn't stop thinking about making little birds. I love how they turned out.
Have a great week!
