I call this my" Folk Art Tree"..........

This little tree is in my family room. Some of the stuff in here I made . The rabbit you see peeking out from the back , I made him. And the pillow I made, and the rag garland hanging on the back of the chair, I made that also. My garland usually is draped across my curtains at the top, but it fell down and I throwed it on the back of the chair until I get it hung back up. I can't hardly climb anymore like I used to could. My mom made the cathedral window quilt .
We used to make alot of crafts, but the china imports put us out . "sigh" I used to be a big collector of Raggedy Ann. I have several Raggedy Ann dolls. I liked the primitive ones.

Ooooh Theresa! It's beautiful!!! All that handmade stuff is awesome! Love the rag garland, have never seen that before! Might be a good way for me to get rid of a ton of scraps...since I don't quilt these days. IF I did though~the Cathedral Windows was going to be my next attempt!! Then the wedding ring one.
Absolutely stunning, your decor is! Thanks for sharing it!
Have a grand Tuesday!

That is a beautiful tree. I like the way you have decorated. Your picture is really great. It looks so festive.

I have something for you on my blog. I was supposed to pass it on to 8, but I just couldn't stop there. I wanted everyone on my blog roll to take it. Stop by when you get a chance.

take care,
Dawn

Theresa, I love your tree! It's wonderful with your handmade things.

I know what you mean about crafts. I used to make things to sell, but no one is selling handmade so much these days. I loved going to shows and finding the neatest things.

Have a great week!

I love raggedy anns and andy's too! Love your decorations, especially the rag dolls.
Found you at Cielo's blog. I wanted to see how the "party" invitation looked, so I'd have an idea where to put it on my blog.
It will be fun.
BTW - I love your music too!

Hi Theresa, I had to say hello before I go to bed. We ran the roads today and I am tired. I love your folk art tree. i used to make things too and now who really needs so much stuff. I did like crafting and still do a little. I enlarged your photos and loved all the sweet things on your tree.

Christmas hugs...Jeanne
