If there is one thing I hope to convey in all my holiday decorating, it’s that creating from your heart is so much more fun than just buying things off the shelf. One truth I rediscover every year, as I unpack my ornaments, is that it’s the ones that come with the love of friends […]
Well, this crazy year has been so up and down with trips out west to try and get the new house up and running, interspersed with wildfires and all manner of crazy events. We barely had time to get any camping trips in but a few did dot our year’s landscape. It seems we will […]
Living in the Midwest, most of our travels include forests and trees. Campgrounds provided plenty of shade and we rarely found ourselves needing an awning. Most of our sun hours are spent walking in the woods or touring historic sites. There are occasions when a light rain storm is blowing and it is nice not […]
Well, this little project has come to a close. I am so happy with the way this tree has come together. It was fun making something from found things and spending time just creating things. I let the serendipity and the creative muse guide me without stressing over what I would make. It really […]
Inspiration from Trader Joe’s tin came to me. When this one started to happen, I knew I was going to love it. I found the stick on a dog walk and it was covered in exquisite moss, so I knew I needed a wide ornament to fully showcase nature’s gift. The long cake pan became […]

Black and white came to me. This little canvas makes me think a black white and red themed tree might needs be crafted next year. Hohoho ©2017zenandtheartoflittlehousetravelling.com All rights reserved.
Today I was focusing on what Christmas means to me. My Hub is many wonderful things, but not a gift giver. My family has dwindled so there are very few, if any, gifts under the tree anymore. I am crazy about Christmas though. I love seeing the enthusiasm people have for lights in their yards, […]
I ran over to a quaint shopping area nearby to pick up a little 1.50 bottlebrush tree for the blog project, some local dog treat confections and some of my all time favorite lipgloss (chocolate carmel drizzle from Bathworks out of Hot Springs Ark). If you ever come camping in the greater Saint Louis Area, […]
