Well, we are off on a new week................not many left in the year 2016....scary huh?
I had this 9" x 12" canvas, that I was never happy with the original work on it. I finally just glued some tissue paper and designer paper over the top and started again. I had added the boarders and then sat thinking "what next?" I finally set it aside, but pulled it out last week and finished it. Still not my favorite..............but way better than it was!
Last Tuesday I said I would share my decorations I put up this year. I really wasn't in the decorating mood and seriously thought about NOT decorating this year, 95% of the time it is just DH and I here. BUT this year our youngest son and family are coming the weekend after Christmas...New Years weekend. So I thought I should at least put up a few things. Now, I'm happy that I did decorate, even though I left over half still in the storage containers....LOL!
The dinning room table and fireplace (that we never use)
Between the dinning room and the living room
A closer look.....they are the ornaments I buy every year to house all the grand-kid's photos. All are dated with the year. They used to hang on the fireplace mantel, but there are too many now. I even hang one of each of our boys and one of the two of them together........those are right in the middle of the garland.
Heavy jeweled snowflakes to anchor the garland down at each end. They are made to house a tea light, but I can't find my battery operated ones...hummmm!!!
The flash made my reindeer look like he is shaking
and of course our tree...............so many decorations left off it this year.
Well if you hung in long enough to see all the photos, your deserve a treat, so help yourself......but no pushing, there is plenty for everyone.
Top row is oatmeal/raisin, then cinnamon/raisin Biscotti, pumpkin muffins ( all healthy ingredients....no sugar and no wheat flour) regular almond Biscotti and finally DH's favorite chocolate chip with chocolate and white chocolate chips and walnuts.
Just behind the platter is my T-day drink, in one of my Christmas mugs. After all the baking I felt I deserved something special. It is coffee and Bailey's Irish Cream, about 1/2 and 1/2 in this photo....*grin*....more like coffee flavored Irish Cream LOL!
The odd shaped thing to the right is a really cool wine bottle stopper. It is hand made of wood, with some turquoise inlaid in it. My DENTIST, who made them, gave me two! The other on is in use right now, so I didn't get a photo of it, of course it is a little different.
