Peg Doll Necklaces

The whirlwind of the holidays is behind us.
As much as I love Christmas-time,
I am always ready to move on once the 26th hits.
My home, de-cluttered from holiday decor, is fresh and clean.
I can breathe again!

I did want to take a moment, though, to show
yet another peg doll Christmas gift that I put together.
This time I made necklaces for my daughters' best friends.

The colors I chose reminded me of the 50's.
I imagine that the girls names are Peggy and Donna
and that they are on their way to a sock hop.
(Does that make me sound crazy?)

If you are interested in a tutorial to make
some of these yourself, click HERE.

I have one more post planned on gifts I gave for Christmas,
and then I will be fully ready to move on to 2011!

I always love the way the house looks and smells after we clean it up after Christmas. A fresh start to the New Year.

O.k., I bought some of these wooden pegs seriously like forever ago...the first time I saw them on your blog, actually! Even bought some of the little screws!! And I have not done a thing with them...they are collecting dust on the craft shelf of my laundry room. I seriously need to get these things out and get to them! My girls would love them!!

Have a happy weekend!!

What a lovely gift idea...especially since you made them yourself. I also took a peek at your very helpful tutorial. What kind of paint do you use to decorate the dolls?

So cute! I want to make one for my niece now!

P.S. The new layout is lovely!

This year was the first year I could not wait to get the tree out of the house, only because it was so bloody dry, Just walking in to the room caused it to rain down a million needles. When do they cut those babies down June?
