Finished Baby Pram and Thank You Melinda

Jake's baby pram was finished at 1:30 AM today. I had to get it to our store so that I would make the finishing deadline for Christmas. Now all my projects for Christmas are done and at the finishers. What pressure!! I am having the pram finished as a stand-up. It will be gusseted on the sides with bun feet and a music box will be placed inside. Cannot wait to get this back.
Several people have asked where I got my tree. I ordered it from Lenox. I believe it was Dept. 56. If it is not 56 then it is 59. I did it online but you can always call Lenox and ask for it. A friend gave me the orange lights. I know she got them from CVS and they come in either orange or purple.
I want to thank Melinda of Living the Good Life. Thank you for inspiring me to be more creative in displaying Stirha and Frank. I never thought of putting them on my mantel since I always decorate it with gourds and pumpkins that I got from Pottery Barn. I then have it decorated for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. After seeing the absolutely beautiful display you did, I realized that I really did not do Stirha and Frank justice. So off I went in search of a fitting display for them. The first thing I had to do was to make sure my tree fit on the mantel. Then I knew exactly what I had to do. It is not complete yet still needs a few little treats but I think that it now does justice to the masterpieces created by Kelly Clark and Amy Bunger.

Wow!!! You have really done them justice now! Your mantle looks fabulous and it's the perfect place for Stirha and Frank. I love your "Boo" standup and must put that on my "To Stitch" list. I just saw a tree similar to yours in the Grandinroad catalog. If anyone has a Hobby Lobby nearby they have some really cute cone shaped black feather trees for Halloween. Love the pram and can just imagine your needle flying into the night to make the deadline. Well done!!

It looks really good!!! I'm still trying to convince my husband that I need to do both the Halloweenies and the Nativity! He just keeps asking me how many canvases I have in my stash!
