Christmas Cards for the Shelter

Stamping Christmas cards and sending them to family and friends is fun, but this year I had another idea in mind.  There is no doubt that I now have more stamping stuff than one person should have, especially with a huge stamping score at an estate sale for paper, and then a wonderful gift from a reader of three more boxes of goodies.   I wanted to use some of it for a special purpose, and did some cards for our Safelight Project last summer.  As DH and I were driving to a Christmas party last weekend, it occurred to me again how blessed I am.  I have a wonderful and warm home, a gentle and loving husband, food on the table, and love of family and friends.  But there are many who are not as lucky, and they might need a lift at this time of year.  It has to be a tough holiday for someone staying in a domestic violence shelter, so I decided to use my stash to create some holiday cards of support for the Safelight shelter residents.  You can help too (you don’t have to be a stamper) and I’ll tell you about that in a moment.

I found a bunch of these glittery gift tags in the boxes (recognize these, Katie?) and thought they would make great cards.  The backs have names on the ‘to’ and ‘from’, but glued down that won’t matter.  Just a pretty velvet ribbon behind a snowman, or an embossed strip behind a stocking, and voila the card is done.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

Another card has a larger embossed design, with an ornament on top. These are fairly simple designs, so I won’t go through them step by step.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

Many of the cards have elements from other cards simply placed on embossed paper.  The green on the left is a snowflake design I used several times.  The one on the right has a ‘ribbon’ of paper rolled with my peppermint candy wheel.  Gift stickers are under the tree.

Reindeer stamps adorn this one, with punched out snowflakes.  The inside has a white paper for the sentiment that shows through the holes on the front.

This one has an ornament punched out of the front, with some embossed snowflakes from another card.  A glittery one is added to the top, then an ornament is stamped so it shows through the punched out part.

A view from the top shows it a little better.

Inside, the sentiment most appropriate for my purpose is stamped, and a sticker added too.

Another tag, this Santa is accented with more snowflakes.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

Red embossed paper with snowflakes provide a base for a stocking and glitter snowflake.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

I had a lot of snowflakes, can you tell?  On this one I just stamped the word Joy over and over.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

Inside all of the cards, this same sentiment is stamped, with different stickers for fun.  I will hand-write a personal message in each one.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

Now, here is how you can help.  There are no prizes this time, only the special feeling of helping someone feel supported this holiday season, to give something to someone that could use a lift, in light of our many blessings.  Make or buy some holiday cards, put a message of support inside, and address the envelope only “For you” or “Season’s Greetings” or similar.  If you are not a stamper, purchased cards will be just fine, the important part is your hand written message of encouragement.  Keep your sentiments to messages of support without a religious component.  See the linked post above for more ideas.

Christmas Cards for Safelight ~ From My Carolina Home

I’d love to have at least 40 cards to deliver to the Safelight shelter, two cards per resident, something to encourage their efforts to change their lives.  There are 18 women and two men at the shelter, yes men can be victims as well.  I have about a dozen cards made so far, but I do need help to get to the goal.  I need them mailed to me by Friday Dec 15 to arrive no later than Monday, Dec 18th.  I know it is short notice, but you have a week to get them in the mail by next Friday.  The cards don’t have to be fancy, the messages of support are the most important part.  Simple and fast is the best for this project.   Mail them to me at:

Holiday Home Ideas and Home Tour

Now that the Christmas season is getting into full swing, it’s time for some decorating ideas.  I’ll show you some of my decorating ideas from previous years, with a few new ideas thrown in for this season with links to patterns for quilted and crafted items.  To begin, if you have some stairs, it is a fun place to hang your Christmas stockings using sill sitter type hangers.  I don’t have a mantle, and some years have used the bookshelves for these, but I really like them on the stairs.

Christmas Decorating ~ From My Carolina Home

Sometimes it is a nice change to use stocking hangers for special ornaments that might otherwise get lost on a heavily laden tree.  This one is from our first Christmas together, quite some time ago.  I tied a red ribbon on it and hung it from the top reindeer instead of the decorative stocking I used last year.  Now I remember our first Christmas every time I go upstairs.

Holiday Home Tour at From My Carolina Home

Make a simple table runner for an end table.  This is a free pattern, along with a couple more quickie projects, still available on my blog HERE.  The focus fabric in the middle is a baking print with little cookie cutters and bags of spices tied with Christmas bows.

Christmas Decorating ~ From My Carolina Home

Add a festive Holiday Wreath to the front of the house. These are not that hard to make, and I’ll teach you how to do the bow too, HERE. See more wreath ideas with the Festival of Wreaths post from Monday.

Christmas Wreaths ~ From My Carolina Home

Hang a Santa hat on your hall tree or coat hook.

Holiday Home Tour at From My Carolina Home

Make a Christmas Ornament mini quilt, and display with a few favorite Christmas pretties.  I changed all the candles in my collection of depression glass candle holders to red ones, and added some candle ring greenery.  This cute little reindeer warming his hooves over the chimney is a favorite holiday piece.

Christmas Decorating ~ From My Carolina Home

Don’t forget the guest bathroom counter.  A simple Santa and playful reindeer with some red candles is festive for guests.

Christmas Decorating ~ From My Carolina Home

I collect small Santa figures, and gather many of them together in a display on an antique corner shelf. Not all I find make the cut though, only the ones I really think are whimsical without being too cutesy.  This picture is overly bright because I just couldn’t get enough light into that corner so I had to use the flash.  My two favorite Santa figures are on the top shelf, in the middle and on the right.

Holiday Home Tour at From My Carolina Home

Pull out a Christmas quilt for the guest bed, and make one for your bed too.  My Christmas Trip Around the World quilt goes so fast, that I made it from beginning the cutting to finishing the binding in just over a week – and that was around my work schedule and social commitments!

Christmas Trip Around the World | From My Carolina Home

While we are in the guest room, make sure yours it is truly ready with my Checklist for Guest Room Readiness. Using a table runner as a bed scarf is one way to add a holiday look without making or buying a whole quilt.

Are you REALLY ready for overnight guests? From My Carolina Home

Christmas themed throw size quilts go on the ottomans.  This one is a simple sampler done in reds and greens.

Another fun place to add a bit of holiday cheer is the kitchen window.  I put this little mouse here with his teacup.  I like his goofy feet that dangle.

Set a pretty table in the dining room.  Next week I’ll show you a new Christmas tablescape, but for now here is last year’s rustic green and gold themed tablescape.

Sew a fun Candle Wrapper for a jar candle to sit on the counter.

Wrapper 17

While you are unpacking your Christmas boxes, are there things that you haven’t used in a while?  Seems like every year there are a few items that I unwrap and then decide not to use.  This year, those items were put in a box, will be donated in time for someone else to enjoy this year, and reduce the amount of stuff I will store for next year.  I pick up new things at the thrift stores during the year, so this helps keep the total in check.  I have a goal of reducing one whole box full this week.

Most of all, take time to breathe and enjoy each day.  This is a fun time of year, but not if you are stressed out trying to make everything perfect.  I personally think the best memories are made when things go a bit haywire, so embrace the days and just enjoy yourself!  Laugh at the foibles, and make new memories with family and friends.

Now, for more Holiday Homes, Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate has put together a fun blog hop.  Since I am on the last day, all these links are active now. Have fun!

Thanksgiving Tablescape and Blog Hop

Here it is November, and my favorite holiday is coming up.  I love Thanksgiving more than any other day of the year.  I’ll get up early, make coffee, put the egg casserole in the cold oven and start it baking.  Then DH and I enjoy breakfast while watching the parades, and start in on football after that.  At the right time, the turkey goes in the oven to fill the house with that aroma of Thanksgiving, turkey and dressing.  Bubbling gravy on the stove, warm yeast rolls in the little oven, a side dish of spinach or broccoli, and cold jellied cranberry sauce in my grandmother’s cut glass dish complete the meal.  Generally we eat at half time of the afternoon game. Of course, a beautiful tablescape is essential for this holiday.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

I began my tablescape this year with the Autumn Leaves and Pumpkins quilted runner from last year’s Autumn Jubilee as the base of the tablescape, taking advantage of the vibrant colors. I put it on top of the ecru tablecloth.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

The centerpiece was built with the tallest elements first, my pilgrim couple. Inherited from my mother, these statues are tall and heavy, and the most precious of my Thanksgiving decor items.  The pilgrims go in different places in our home each year, and this year I decided to put them on the table, flanked by tall rust candles in my Fostoria depression glass holders.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

There is so much detail in the faces, hands, clothing, and the items they hold.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

This year I left the gathering baskets on their backs empty, but those could hold small bunches of flowers.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Garlands of fall leaves were added next.  See the detail in her dress and apron, and the pumpkin and tree branch at his feet?

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Then, turkeys from my collection of more than 20 ceramic turkeys were added to one end…

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

and the other end.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

This centerpiece display was taller than I usually like, so larger turkeys from my collection went in the very center, creating a lower spot for diners to see the guests on the other side of the table.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

This one is really a cookie jar, and last year sat on the kitchen counter.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Small ceramic pumpkins and smaller ceramic turkeys fill in the open spots, and candle rings were added to the candles.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

A new acquisition for this year, I found some turkey place card holders, how fun is this!!  I’ll create some place cards with our guests names for them.  This year we are having a dinner on Friday instead of the holiday itself.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

The nutmeg spice napkins are held with turkey napkin rings that say Happy Thanksgiving, also inherited from my mother.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

When my friend, Teresa, told me she had a set of gold flatware, I talked her into letting me borrow it. The warmth of the gold works wonderfully with the plates and copper color chargers.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

White china plates go on the chargers, with my fabulous turkey salad plates. These were a Pottery Barn score, I just fell in love with these plates.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

I use them for breakfast and lunch during the month of November too.  Plates this fun have to be used as much as possible during the one month of the year they come out. The gold rims and the metallic gold in the design pick up the warmth of the gold flatware nicely.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Two gold rimmed wine glasses from a thrift store score last summer are set at the end places, then the other places got pretty cut stems, also thrift store scores.  Individual salt and pepper shakers, and crystal knife rests complete the place settings.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

These colors make my heart sing at this time of year, mirroring the colors in the trees outside.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

I just realized that I didn’t put the bread plates on the place settings, so I’ll add those later.  No, I don’t mind one whit about having to wash a lot of dishes, there are only a few times a year that I get to go all out!

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

I hope it will be cold enough to enjoy a fire in the stone fireplace during the meal.  There is room on the four corners of the table on the sides for dishes of food.

Thanksgiving Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

One more look at the completed table.   What are your plans (or what did you do) for Thanksgiving this year?  If you don’t have Thanksgiving in your country, do you have a celebration of Autumn?

Happy Independence Day Tablescape and Ideas

How is one supposed to have a cookout in the rain? The forecast isn’t promising for this evening and it is foggy this morning portending a very humid day.  Supposedly the rain will clear for a bit around cooking time, but I can’t count on that.  So, as I had to do last year as well, I set the table inside. I did it yesterday afternoon so I could get pictures and show you today.  If it clears up, it won’t take more than 10 minutes or so to move the whole thing to the veranda table.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

I started with covering the table with a piece of white plastic, and covered that with a white cloth to protect it, bratwurst can get a bit juicy.  The Patriotic Table Runner is one I made a couple of years ago using a tri-recs ruler for the stars, and patriotic fabric for the squares.  Click on the name for the free quilted table runner tutorial and pattern.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

The white star melamine dishes came out, and were dressed with a bit of star garland in blue and red. The “vase” for the flowers is a jelly jar. The hydrangea had a couple of small flower heads that were more blue, so they were added to the vases.  I did two of these to go on either side of the center.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

The red salvia in the white planter was brought in from the veranda to be the focus of the centerpiece.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

The star plates were set on either side, with two star sprays that I got at a dollar store some years ago.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

There was just a bit more needed to fill out the centerpiece, so the Mason Jar Candles with red flowers were also added.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Place settings were casual as usual for a cookout, with everyday flatware, red chargers and white stoneware. No salad plates as we weren’t going to need them. Red napkins got red rings.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Then I had another idea. I thought rolling the red napkins would make them look like firecrackers (or dynamite, LOL!!), so I did that.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

That’s fun, something different than the napkin shape I usually use.  Wine glasses were added as well.  Now, the table is set and ready for guests.  No place cards for this meal, it is just casual.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

I’ve left the four corners for serving dishes. Our guests are bringing side dishes to share, and if they need a dish, we’ll use these.

July Tablescape at From My Carolina Home

Another look at the star plates with the garland and hydrangea, and the mason jar candle.

Ready for spending time with good friends.

The big flag platter will hold brats and burgers and buns.

I always make some of my Perfect Deviled Eggs for cookouts and picnics.

Perfect Deviled Eggs From My Carolina Home

This year I’ll make a cucumber salad as well, from a couple of huge cucumbers a friend gave me.  Need more inspiration?  You can see some of my previous tablescapes at these links.

Patriotic Tablescape 2016 – white placemats, red chargers, and three colors of napkins with clear acrylic rings because I didn’t have six of any one color.

and outside with paper napkin chargers and the melamine stars as plates!  Strawberry napkin rings hold red cloth napkins. Star sprays flank a planter with white petunia.

July 4th Cookout at From My Carolina Home

And here is the veranda tablescape from an early July Red White and Blue Luncheon I had with friends two summers ago.  This time I rolled the plasticware inside paper napkins and tied them with a blue ribbon.

I hope you have a wonderful July 4th holiday, time spent with family and friends with lots of fun and fireworks!!

What are your plans for the holiday?

Reflections on an Early Morning

Sometimes I am up really early in the morning, and have the wonderful opportunity to witness the sunrise over the mountain to the east. There is just something about the light in the early morning that is different from evening. I’ve never been able to describe the difference, but I can see it. It somehow seems softer, more pure.

Early Morning 3

The torenia baskets seem to turn their faces to the morning light.

Early Morning 2

A view down the veranda. Quiet. Peaceful.  Only bird song breaks the silence.

Early Morning 7

Noticing the shadows of the railing on the flooring boards, a gentle breeze moves the leaf shadows ever so slightly.

Early Morning 1

Hot coffee and a cool morning, perfect to reflect on our many blessings, and enjoy the beauty of our little corner of the world.  It is also a great time to just think, and I have been doing some designing in these quiet hours too.  I will have a new quilt pattern for you soon.

Early Morning 4

The valley has a different look to the layers of hills and distant mountain ridge with the light from the east.  We face south so the east is to the left in this picture.

Early Morning 5

The bird feeder was seeing a lot of visitors on this day.

Early Morning 9

Here and there, dew drops had formed on flowers.

Early Morning 13

Interplay of light and shadow make interesting shapes.

Early Morning 14

I really liked the shadow on this lobelia trailing tendril, this may be a photo entry in the fair later this year.  The shapes are interesting, and the clear light made a sharp edged shadow.

Early Morning 17

Looking up, the clouds looked like flying visitors.

Early Morning 18

Light and shadow on the driveway down the mountain, in the golden morning.  Reminiscent of a time gone by, of a slower day, time to be still and breathe.

Early Morning 20

The blue jay calls, and the chickadees answer.  A titmouse, a wren and a nuthatch join the choir.  This is a morning for gratitude, for our lives, our freedom, our beautiful home and property, our family and friends, our many blessings.  Count your blessings today, and remember those who have protected our freedom.  Have a wonderful Memorial Day.

Crescent Dogs and Patriotic Tables

Memorial Day weekend is here, a great time for some finger food to watch the auto races on Sunday, or to take to the park for a picnic, or pack in a warmer to go hiking. Even if you are staying home, the weather looks nice here for a meal on the veranda. This tablescape was from a lunch a while ago, and I might just do the same this weekend. The plastic star plates are set on paper patriotic napkins for color, and the white straw placemats.

Patriotic Ladies Luncheon on From My Carolina Home

Patriotic napkins are wrapped around plastic forks and tied with ribbon.  Placecards add a personal touch.

Patriotic Ladies Luncheon on From My Carolina Home

My Patriotic Table Runner is a tutorial that you can make in a day.   This tablescape was from last year when it looked like rain on the holiday.  More casual, this one didn’t have chargers, just white dinner plates and red salad plates on white placemats, and red napkins held with wood napkin rings.

Patriotic Tablescape 7

I have used this runner several times a year since I made it, as it goes for all the Patriotic holidays over the summer.  This one used my depression glass candlesticks with red candles and the little starburst weighted sprays I got at the dollar store.  Red chargers and napkins held with strawberry napkin rings sit atop white lace placemats.

July 4th Cookout at From My Carolina Home

So, food!   Let’s make some Crescent Dogs for munching.  This is a great make ahead recipe for taking along to a picnic, potluck, or even hiking.  Start with separating the crescent dough into four sections, ignoring the diagonal perforations.  Press those perforations so the dough holds together.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

Boil your hot dogs for a few minutes to be sure they are cooked through and hot.  The crescent rolls will get brown before the dogs are done, so precooking is essential.  Yes, you could grill the dogs for even more flavor.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

Spread mustard on the crescent rolls.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

Now place the cooked hot dogs on the rolls.  Using two dogs per section, cut the dough in half.  Add cheese if you like.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

Wrap the dough around the hot dogs and place on a baking sheet.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

Bake as directed on the crescent roll dough tin until golden brown. I have to admit that I cannot remember and didn’t write it down when I did these.  I think it is about 11-13 minutes at 425 degrees, but use the directions on the tin.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

Yum, nicely browned, and ready to eat.  Makes 8, two per person would feed four for lunch.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

If you are taking them to a party, just cut into bite size pieces.  You can get four nice bite size pieces from each one, for 32 appetizers.

Crescent Dogs at From My Carolina Home

While you are munching on Crescent Dogs, read about my Patriotic Star Mini Quilt, full tutorial with two quilting runs in different colors.

Back to the table, I’ll be using my neat large plastic tray I got in a silent auction some time ago.  I think Crescent Dogs will go nicely on this for passing around the party.

Patriotic Tablescape 2016 ~ From My Carolina Home

Or make my Perfect Deviled Eggs using the last recipe you’ll ever need, and serve with Ham Rollups.

July 4th Cookout at From My Carolina Home

These bowls were in the same silent auction win, and I haven’t had a chance to use them yet. Maybe this year.

Easter Decorating

Easter is just days away now.  I didn’t do a lot of decorating for this holiday this year.  One thing I do have to put out every year, though, is this adorable, now vintage, Happy Easter train.  Look closely and you can see the word Happy spelled out in twig letters held by the little bunnies.  The word Easter is spelled out on the train cars.  This year I have it on the kitchen counter.

Easter Train ~ From My Carolina Home

The Spring Tulip Mini Quilt is on the stand.  I need to get a few more designs done for this stand.

On the wall is my original disappearing nine patch based quilt, Stacked Bricks.  That pattern is free in my Craftsy store.

This little Button basket is a fun crafting project.  Just glue pastel color buttons to the side of a basket in rows of colors, then fill with some silk flowers.

This little ducky is too cute with her Easter hat and egg.  I put a silk violet in a yellow basket nearby.

Over on the coffee table, I set out a wool-work rabbit penny rug with a glass bunny on it.
