I don't know if you saw the ornaments I was making on Sunday. I made some in the usual silver mason jar lids, and there were some red ones at Walmart I picked up too, just to be a little extra festive. It's too cold out to spray paint!
Here's what they look like on my little tree...
I originally thought I'd group my three little trees together, but I had an idea and went with it. You'll see them later.
So here's where we were Sunday. I waited and let them dry overnight before I finished them.
A little closer to view them...
These ornaments made from mason jar lids and bands were so ultra easy. And I just love to sit on my couch and gaze at the little vintage children I printed out from the internet.

I don't know if I'll make more homemade ornaments or not. I love to create them, and it's a yearly tradition with me.
I've always thought it was fun to add them to the tree as I make them. So it will just depend on how things go.
My Abi is in surgery. I took her to the vet early this morning. I'm a jumble of nerves. She's not a spring chicken. She and Charlie are 9 years old now.
The vet told me that if she jumps or tears it in any way, we have to start all over again. I can't imagine putting her through this again. And paying for it again!
I will update with news after I pick her up this evening.
Don't forget that Debra and I are having a linky party December 9th and 10th for all of you to join in. It will be fun to see everyone's creations. That's one week from today!
UPDATE ON ABI:
The vet's office just called and said Abi came through the surgery just fine. I can pick her up at 4 p.m.
