Victorian Dreams (What’s It Wednesday #3)

 My favorite décor for Christmas is Victorian. It is romantic and oh so excessive!

 So in true Victorian style, that means I can keep buying ornaments and just pile on more and more. Don’t you just love Christmas!

 This is my idea of a “Victorian dream catcher”. The wonderful Rosemary at Ozma of Odds inspired me. She makes the most incredible creations! I hope I did you proud, Rosemary.

  I think I’ll sew on some more pearls and be on the lookout for more butterflies. After all, it is a “Victorian” dream catcher, right?

It is a gorgeous dream catcher Patti. Rosemary will be so proud.
I love a Victorian Christmas too. Oh I had so many trees decorated to the gills. In the last few years things have become a little simpler around here, but I still buy the Victorian decorating magazines to get my fix.

Good morning darling Patti!!!!

Oh dearest, all is well. But yesterday, my blog had some problems due to either hacking or a strange virus suspiciously embedded into a gadget. For hours, I was getting sweet emails from friends who were telling me they could not enter my site because they kept getting diverted to a strange site! But it was a relief to find the problem and dispose of the gadget. I am wishing YOU and your lovely daughter and family the BEST OF has been a blessing to come to know you sweet one. MANY THANKS for this lovely post. I am putting you on my blog is hard to keep up with everyone, but you are so special and your posts are sooooooo beautiful! BISOUS! Anita

I'm sooo late!

I love what you did inspiring on my talented friend Rosemary and the features are great too. Merry Christmas lovely ladies and many Bblessings too.


Oh, and I'm with you...I love to pile up ornies and I do since 1975, year I got married! Your tree is magnificent! Merry Christmas!!
