~~~Gettin In The Grove~~~

It's 107 degrees today and I am ready for the Christmas tree!! Oh yes I am. I just can't help myself. I have said every year that I would start on my creations for my shop early, and every year I have failed, oops, messed up. : ) But, not this year. This year I am ahead of the game and so proud of myself.

I made two of my stockings using a natural canvas. If you have been following me or reading this blog, you know how much I love this fabric. I bought some french images from Debbi of Marionberry Cottage and just love the way they look with cream lace, vintage lace and muslin.

Such a pretty color and this lace is cream and is vintage. I don't remember where I purchased it, but I wish I had more.......

And what could be cuter than a sweet silver tone Eiffel Tower charm?

Ah, cherries and tassels too. I have so much more to show you, but I have to contain my excitement for another day. Until then, I will leave you with this sweet tassel.

All this and more coming to my website Someplace In Thyme very soon.


  1. The french stockings are beautiful!! Love the retro look of the cherries too:)

  2. You crack me up! It was 110 here in Oklahoma today. I'm soo ready for cooler weather. But then I'm nevahhhh happy. When it was cold I wanted it HOT! :(
