Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!
Pic from here.
It is all over, but the clean-up! That is NEVER the fun part.
Here is my wish for your New Year and it is from Mother Teresa:
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today. Let us begin.”
And so the new year begins, wonder what it will hold?
Each year for Christmas, I made ornaments for the family I spend Christmas with. I try to mix it up every year and when I found the vintage tins in a lot of ornaments from Goodwill, I hatched this year’s design.
The snow is from a cotton ball I pulled apart (several in fact), the miniatures from a large lit of miniatures I scored at an estate sale, the trees are for train garden displays also scored at a thrift shop, the wooden snowman is a small ornament, the leaves and berries from a silk plant I had. The snow is the stuff that you use in the Christmas house displays. I used spray adhesive to adhere it to the ornament.
I used my crop-o-dile to punch the holes at the top and the sparkly hanger is some vintage package wrapping ribbon with a bit of elastic.
They were quite the hit and add to the collection of several years long I have going.
Remember, that feeling when you got exactly what you asked Santa for? I have to think I made the same face!
Here’s hoping Santa makes all your wishes come true.
‘cause Santa Claus is comin’ to town!
Happy Christmas Eve!
Today is the big day! On this very day some 49 years ago a big baby girl was born. The story has it that my Mom went to her appointment and the doctor told her that she was ready to deliver me! Off they whisked her to the delivery room and when it was all over and done, they called my Dad at work to tell him that he was the Father of a bouncing 10 pound 9 ounce girl!
Then the story varies a bit from there. My Mom’s side is that Dad finished his shift and then came over to see me. Dad’s side is that he rushed to my side immediately. Either way, I arrived, I was loved and here I am 49 years later.
So in honor of my big Day, I invited the Beatles and they have graciously agreed to serenade me!
Here is wishing you all the best that this new year has to offer!
New Year, new possibilities! Open it!
Let’s see if I can stay awake to make it to midnight!
