little christmas lanterns.....




I made these little fairy light covers out of
pretty card stock papers

They add a whimsical touch to my
Christmas home
making it
 merry, bright and fun 

{xox}

live nutty.
just occasionally.
just once in a while.
and see what happens.
it brightens up the day.

Thanks Koralee- Those are darling. I think I needed a smile tonight after all the sadness that surrounds us. I love your sweet header-coming here always makes me happy-

Did I send you the graphic for Tuesday's Silence and Support for Newtown? (if you want to participate) If I did I forgot to include the link with it- let me know-xo Diana

So very adorable. I must make these for Chinese New Year, as I can't fit one more thing on my Christmas to do list. :)
