First the tree...
For a change this year I decorated the tree using silver, glass and white, although my fairy always wears white anyway - I bought her naked - a rather Ruebenesque shape that made us laugh. I made her dress etc and she has been on the top of our tree for the last 10 years or so!
We went to my middle son's house for Christmas lunch having been to visit hubby's sisters on the way!
My GD had the most beautiful jacket..
…she wasn't too keen on my taking a photo though!
Home again and I realised that I needed some decorated envelopes for putting vouchers in…
…followed by a cup a of coffee…in my Christmas mug...
…behind the mug you can see my tidy boxes - everything that lies around gets thrown in them to sort out ….some time!!!
Of course - the main reason for being here today is to join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday.
Yesterday my eldest son hosted our annual family get together - we save our gift giving until then.
On the way the sunset was beautiful.
I took photos of my sons…
..eldest son with Deisel the dog - surely the most laid back dog in the World!
Next is number two son …
…with tolerant look on his face...
…the same look matched by Number three son!!!
We played a silly game which involved putting mouth stretchers in and saying well known phrases to everyone else ….fortunately not enough for everyone!!!!
A LOT of laughing went on!!!
After the game I had a wander around my sons lovely home - he collects random objects (just like his mother!)and makes lovely things with them…
This ceiling light is made from a cross section of a tree and is hug with different light bulbs.
I couldn't get a photo of the whole wall but it's full of different frames with most of the photos taken by either my son or my DIL.
One of their latest interests is Steampunk and he made this holster from all sorts of different things.
His latest make is for my DIL to hang her jewellery from (it will be mounted on to the wall in the bedroom after Christmas - without the sword)
The sword was made for my GS.
Today has been a quieter day for us! A little trip out to collect an item that was on order and a stop for coffee! Did we go to the sales? No Thank You!
Thanks for looking, Chris
