Mini Tree Ornaments and Molding for Davree's Cottage

Small peppermint candy canes and birch wooden disc ornaments are two of the items for the Christmas tree for Davree's Cottage. I had wanted to use walnuts burnished gold but they seemed too large for the proportion of the tree.


A tree needs a garland which I'm making, it's very time consuming! Will show you later.

Here is Jan today inside Davree's Cottage, touching up the nail holes after mounting the ceiling trim. We're getting closer to finishing!

Friday Jan's sister and brother-in-law stopped by on their way home to Washington state from a visit to southern California. They gave us a gift, a Dutch cookbook. It starts with the history of Dutch food and cooking, very interesting about the origins. It has beautiful photography and traditional recipes.

I'll have to make the St. Nicholas slices for Christmas, they have lots of spices and almonds.

We have set Wednesday, December 4, 2013 as the first day for Davree's Cottage Christmas Scene to be on display from 6 to 10 p.m.

Bring your children or adults and their teddy bears or favorite stuffed animals and take photos with them visiting Davree's Cottage.  

Davree's mail box will be available to leave her a letter. 
Also letters to Santa will be delivered to the North Pole by a relay of fairies going city to city. Francis will take letters on the first leg north.
