Winter subway art table runner

Thank you for visiting today ! We had a very busy Holiday season.. Christmas , New years , 2 of my kids birthdays , and our wedding anniversary..Seems like it all went by way too fast ! All of the Christmas is down and put away except for the 2 trees I keep up until the end of January. I started at 6 am and was finished by 1:00pm .. Does not take long at all to put away !The boys and husband put it all in the crawl space..
 I had to make another table runner for the winter .. I used dark aqua, light aqua, silver and white paints. I used osnaburg again for the base , today I had to go to Joann fabrics to get some fabric for the ruffles.. I didn't have any aqua fabrics.

 Some progress photos.. Like the Christmas one I made I stamped snowflakes lightly in the background using the silver and white paint



 I got this tray at Goodwill the house was a gift last year from my daughter, and I just added snowflakes and mini ornaments ..


 This house sits on a tray in the family room on the coffee table. Not ready to give up all the decorations yet ! I still have the ice skate tree and snowman tree up and they will stay up until the end on January.
 I have gotten some stitching done...2 prairie schooler santas and a 3rd one about 1/2 done.. a Little house needleworks ornament..and the snowman ornament..
 The mantel is decorated for winter.. I used a glittery house, some lanterns, snowy garland , snowy trees and ice skates..
Thanks as always for your visits and comments I truly appreciate them ! Hope 2013 is going well for you all !

LOVE your runner, Priscilla! What a great job you did on it. Love the ruffle. Kudos to you for doing all the stamping on it, too. It really came out wonderful and is perfect for this time of year.

This is really pretty. I have a plain burlap one at the moment that I want to paint snowflakes on - you have inspired me :-)

Very cute and different! I love to keep wintery things around in January, but I am already getting antsy to start some Valentine decor! I love your mantle too!

Beautiful! I love your runner and I (as I'm sure you know by now) adore your just stitched Santas :)

Carol said...

That is a darling table runner!

Carol said...

Another wonderful table runner--Priscilla! The colors you used are perfect for winter and the little house centerpiece is so wintry and pretty. And, oh--the PS Santas--makes me want to run and pull those charts and get started :)

Hope the rest of 2013 is a great year for you (oh, and Happy Anniversary to you and your husband!)...

Oh wow, that is incredibly lovely and semi easy enough. I think I'll have to collect some letter stamps. Love it. Thanks for sharing. I found you via Share Your Cup.

I love it! My husband stretches his own canvases to paint so I have lots of scraps. I see a weekend project in the making.

Hi Priscilla,
Another great subway art! You do such a great job. I really like this one. Maybe it's the awesome blue colors. I think you need one for every holiday. I too still have Winter up. Thinking I might take it down next week and start putting up Valentines. Just in the mood for Love! lol! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann

Visiting from Funky Junk. I LOVE your table runner! I'm pinning to 'copy' your idea sometime. :) (With all due credit to you, of course!)

Thanks so much for your visit and kind words about my Winter Front Porch!
Actually, decorating it for Winter saves me from taking it all down with taking down everything in the house so it saves me a bit of work all at one time. And it adds a little bright warmth to the dark cold winter nights...

Hugs,
Deb
