the Heart of Christmas ♥ hearty handknit decorations

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wishing you a merrily heartfelt Christmas and a happily decorated staircase! We don’t have a Christmas tree. What we do have is a lot of yarn and handknit heart decorations. And since decorating the staircase was so much fun last year, I thought it might be fun to do it again this year 🙂 Hmmm… could this be the start of a new tradition?!? How many years does it take to build a tradition?

Anyway, yarn is always fun to play around with and take photos of—before and/or after it is knit up 🙂 As you may recall, these are the same backyard photo props from last week’s “deck the yard with hearts of yarn-y” post. Yup… lots of good, clean, indoor/outdoor hearty yarn-bombing fun going on around here! Stay tuned to this blog for more details on making your own hearty “how to’s” in 2015!

May your heart overflow with
love, joy, happiness and peace…
at Christmas time and
throughout the new year.

Merry Christmas! ♥ Jackie

  1. Speaking of yarn, when I lived in Dinwiddie, I used white yarn in place of electric fencing between the T-Posts to mark the ‘grazing area’ on those troubled spots around the property in need of cleanup. I’ll bet you never used yarn for that purpose! LOL

    Merry Christmas, Jackie. I hope your day is filled with blessings. 🙂

    I loved your selection here, by the way. It is obvious you’ve gone all out! Nice job!

    • And a very merry Christmas to you too, Marcy 🙂 Were you living in Virginia with your horse? How interesting, to hear how/why you built a fence from yarn! I’ve been spinning plastic bags into yarn and sometimes ponder the thought of weaving it into a fence 🙂 ♥ ❤

    I had much rather have a knitted cap or scarf that was made with love than thousands of dollars worth of thoughtless gifts.

    • That is for sure, Beth! And even if that knitted gift didn’t fit, it’s the loving thought that counts 🙂 ♥ ❤

    I think more than one year in a row can be the beginning of a new tradition 🙂 We didn’t manage to get a tree this year, but there sure was a lot of love and fun! I love your stairs, they glow!

    • Thanks Lisa 🙂 Okay, so it’s official then… 2 years in a row, marking the beginning of our stairway to Christmas decorating tradition! Glad you had a fun Christmas filled with love and wishing you more of the same throughout 2015 🙂 ♥ ❤
