Little Ornaments

Hello, Dear Ones! Now don't faint as I'm posting again! 
I'm a little slow in getting the Christmas out this year. I came down with some sort of bug and was kinda in limbo last week but this week - woo hoo! I've been cross stitching some little ornies and in my head this is what I wanted to do with them... 
Now this is all we have as a banister on the open staircase side so I wanted to spiff it up a little bit for Christmas. I put some little cuties in the left hand corner just for you!  I poked up an old garland, added some beads and a few little balls. Oh, I used one of those battery operated lights but I should have used the set with the green wires but hey, it's done now. Then I added my little stitched ornies. Take a look at them.
 Santa Clause is coming to town...

In the meadow we can build a snowman...
Oh, Christmas tree...
 Peace on earth good will to men. This one is my favorite. I think they turned out pretty cute. I'm not really good at finishing but I do my best - sort of! :)
 Do you like it? I hope so as I had such a fun time stitching these and want to make some more soon.
Hope your Christmasing is going well!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Grown-Up Christmas List

 Do you remember me
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you with childhood fantasies

Well I'm all grown-up now
And still need help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream

So here's my lifelong wish
My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list

As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree

Well heaven surely knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal a hurting human soul

What is this illusion called
The innocence of youth
Maybe only in our blind belief
Can we ever find the truth
