Hi everyone… and a happy Sunday to you all!

The weather here today is a mixture of sunshine and rain.. ..  so what better way to spend a lazy sunday than in your craft space 🙂 and that’s exactly where I headed this morning.

I read through some books when I got up there whilst I was drinking a nice hot cup ot tea.. one of which was a book called Pretty Little Felts by Julie Collings the ISBN number for it is ISBN-13: 978-1-60061-090-5.    On page 22 was a lovely little “Window Ornament” project, and this is the project I have to share with you all today.


The picture, is my Golden Retriever, Sam, he had the pleasure of owning me many years ago, and sadly passed away not long after my son was born from liver cancer.   He was the most handsome, loyal, disobedient barking hound lol.

  1. Beautiful ornament and what a special way to remember Sam. I lost my beloved cat, Roman last year from an incurable and unpreventable FIP virus. He was 11 years old and every Christmas, he would sleep under the tree, especially when it was lit. An ornament hanging on the tree would be a nice way to remember him. Lovely post and beautiful ornament! I love the book paper and the soft pink velvet touches. Sam looks like he was a well-loved and very sweet companion. Sorry for your loss. ~Vanessa

    1. Hi Vanessa…

      Thank you so much for taking time to pop in and leave a lovely comment.

      Sorry to hear about Roman… it’s sad when we have to say goodbye to our furbabies…

      Sammy was a lovely dog, and we loved him to bits, sadly he’s been gone a long time… 18 years ago, my time flies!

  2. This is a very pretty shabby chic ornamet Sarah. I love the texture of it. The combination of the old book paper, the crocheted doily and the glittered felt give it a special feel. Soft.
    I’m sure you will enjoy this Sam ornament for years.
