Unfinished Business…

Although Christmas is already over, I still have a few LHN ornaments I haven’t got a chance to show you. I did actually meet my goals for a change and finished them all before Christmas~~

First up is “Pear Tree”!! I thought a simple Jute twine finish would be perfect for it!! This may be my favorite ornament of the whole bunch~~~

Next up is “Joy and Peace”. I used a cinnamon stick as decoration and I think it’s perfect!! It smells pretty good, too~~
