A field trip and a winter mantle

 Because Grant is injured we couldn't do anything over Christmas break really. I was listening to the radio and heard an ad for a liberty doll exhibit at the field museum and we were already in the car, so off we went.  Much to my surprise they had GORGEOUS feather trees up for the holiday.
 These aren't great pics from behind the ropes but this one was AMAZING.
 The liberty doll collection was interesting too. The silk on this one was so shattered.

 I decided to try a wintery mantle instead of going right to the valentines. I got out my mercury glass from the cabinet, made a mitten garland and just started adding things. I don't LOVE it, but I think it has potential.
 I do love the mittens.
 I toyed with reflector flowers and then decided I was over this project, so only one got made.
And I never know what to do with this winter wish thing but I love it! It was nice to use it.
