I know it is sweltering heat outside. . .I also know few people think "Christmas" and snow in July. . .But I had to share with you the LOG CABIN ORNAMENTS I've been making. . .Some of them will appear in the Winter Issue of COUNTRY RUSTIC MAGAZINE. . .which is why I can't show you too much of the end result. . .but you'll be able to see them and get the instructions when the magazine comes out. . .
The ones above are still in the embellishing stage. . .
I promise you they are the simplest ornaments I have ever made
although they look so impressive that everyone who sees them
thinks I've worked for days on them. . .
I like projects like that. . .
I was inspired to design these pioneer style pieces of folk architecture by my miniature log cabin collection that I pull out each year and which will appear in that same Winter Issue. . .and also by a real log house that is being reassembled in Ste. Genevieve, MO. . .
Your can read about this miracle story at:
As for the ornaments. . .I must admit, I am pretty surprised at how cute they are turning out to be. . .
If the temperature continues with a heat index of 110 degrees each day. . .
I just might end up with a whole Christmas village. . .
as long as the cinnamon sticks last. . .because. . .
Have you ever tried finding quantities of cinnamon sticks in July?
