now it feels like x-mas around here ...

The tree is finally up. We were a bit late this year with so much going on, but now it's done and Maggie couldn't be happier because she likes to steal the x-mas ornaments and hide them around the house (and that's why we only have non breakable tree ornaments ...)

I've been seeing so many lovely decoration ideas in blogland lately, but unfortunately I knew I couldn't make them all, so I decided to choose just one and stick with it.
And my favorite was definitely Alex's Owl Pennant (because I do love owls and these are so cute).

It was very easy and a quick project to make, and in no time I had my own pennant (mine says, of course, "Feliz Natal", meaning Merry X-mas in Portuguese).

And maybe, maybe, if I have some time left, I'll make some of Sarah's Stacked Christmas Trees next week, to join the above soft trees made last year. I do have some fabric leftovers I think would be perfect for that, and one can never have too many decorations, right ?

OK, that's it for this week. We'll be taking a short trip to Spain so expect some trip photos on Monday ...
