Snow Day!!!!!

Today the weather was horrible...I didn't really have a snow day, but I did. So.......
I will share with you what my good friend and Next Door Neighbour and I accomplished on the weekend ~

We made salt dough icicles!  I hung them on the fireplace with twine for a simple look.  Karen will be posting the recipe for these..they are soooo easy to make and fun! Go to for the recipe.

AND Karen being the absolute dolly doll that she is.... made these stockings for me

I just added a little bling to them...Aren't they sweet?

I Just keep decorating....;-)  Are you finished decorating yet?


P.S. here is the recipe for victorian salt clay or salt dough.  Karen's been busy so I have put the linky on here...

We made the dough and separated it and rolled it between our fingers.  The icicles do NOT have to be perect.  In fact, have you ever seen a perfect icicle?  We then baked them as per the recipe and the next day we painted them with white glue and sprinkled glitter on them and hung them to dry ~ voila ~ done!


  1. Nope I am not done decorating yet. It is way to much fun to stop now.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog!
    And I love your name!!

  2. Thanks Marianne ~ better yet, my mother was from the Netherlands!

  3. Hi Marianne,

    I've never heard of salt dough icicles before - they look beautiful! I'll be sure to visit Homespun Girl. I also love your new stockings - so cute!

    I went into the forest & cut a little tree yesterday, which will take about 15 minutes to decorate. :) Hubby is starting to ask about Christmas cookies, so that's what I'll be working on next.

    Wishing you a lovely day,
