Sweet Ho-Ho-Home and an Intown Holly Days Visit!

Holly Days is nearly over! Can you believe it? It's been a fun month of spreading a little Christmas cheer.
Sweet Home always looks darling, no matter what the time of year. But, add in a little Christmas and it is super cute.


A tiny tree and a vintage chalkboard welcomed shoppers on the front porch.


Love this snowball and nine patch quilt. It has such charm.


No tree? No problem! Just grab your husband's wooden stepladder and wrap it with big colorful lights.


Have you heard of Pinterest? Of course you have. Most of the trees on display at the shop were inspired from projects found on digital pin boards.


You can visit Melisa's Very Merry board here so you can make your own Christmas decorations.


Jackie gave a wonderful demonstration of Jaybird Quilt's Hex and More ruler, as well as Heather Mulder Peterson's Triangler ruler and projects from her Angles with Ease book. Don't you love that festive tree runner?


These yarn-wrapped trees are a time warp back to the 60's! My grandmother used to make these. Love them still.


Merry Christmas, Sweet Home style!

This weekend is Intown Quilters' turn. Vintage Christmas is the theme and cuteness greets you right as you walk in the door. The quilt on the right is a free pattern called Candy land. My kids loved that game!


A darling stocking advent calendar and a sweet winter barn quilt with a piano key border hang in the window, waiting for Santa.


You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch but your quilt sure is adorable!


A single Christmas tree lights the way to the Kaffe Fassett wall.


A close up of a vintage bow tie quilt from Sarah's family collection. I think the ties look like cat whiskers which makes this quilt even more endearing.


Lots of fun and quick Christmas gift ideas are assembled together for big impact. Don't you love the bowl covers?


This sweet girl posed in her fancy apron with her perfectly coordinated outfit!


You still have tomorrow to pop over to Intown Quilters for a visit. And, don't forget, A Scarlet Thread will be decking the halls next weekend, August 1-3!
