Christmas Morning: a little girl´s favorites

This Christmas was filled with loved ones, lovely details and handmade wonders. My little G got a sweet little embroidery set from grandma and a wooden doll house from Santa (wink, wink)... these are a few Christmas morning pics... her moments of happy silence.

Esta Navidad estuvo lleno de seres queridos, hermosos detalles y maravillas hechas a mano. Mi pequeña G recibió un jueguito de bordado de su Nonna (abuelita) y una casita de muñecas hecha de madera de Santa (guiño, guiño)...estas son algunas imágenes de su mañana de Navidad... sus momentos de silenciosa alegría.


  1. I love the doll house...Good job Santa(wink,wink)..what kind of needle does G use? I've been thinking of teaching Lily to embroider, just like my abuelita taught me :)

  2. Hola Yoly! About that needle, G has been in a Montessori school for all of her short little life. There they teach them how to sew buttons and the basics of embroidery. So she actually uses a normal needle. I chose a thick one with a large "eye" so she can thread it easily. Basically, the fact that the needle is thicker sort of makes it harder for her to prick her little fingers. At first, though, she started out with a plastic needle and a kind of potato sack fabric.... good luck! Every little girl should learn how to embroider like our abuelitas! xoxo, Clau

  3. so lovely! we make many of our gifts too...and I love the whole process...there is something so special about giving a gift made from your own hands! Hoping you and your family had the best of holidays and Happy New Year!!!

  4. Que hermosa casa de muñecas, me parece genial que la nena ya este haciendo sus primeros bordados, pronto se convertiran en hermosos recuerdos, estoy esperando ansiosa que Emma tenga más edad para enseñarla a bordar !
    También estoy cruzando los dedos para que recibas la cámara en tu cumpleaños !!

  5. Just beautiful. So glad you had a lovely Christmas.
