Remote Control Christmas

I got an early Christmas present of a remote control lightshow thingy for my Christmas Tree - thankfully it has a regular on/off button for non-flashing lights....

(Humor me - I am still learning what my camera will do....lol!)

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.....

I spent a chunk of summer making snowflakes and as usual I avoid "blocking" (stiffening, glittering and pinning) them as its a bit of a tedious process - but since the holidays are upon us its time to get some done!









....but now that some are blocked I have created a glittery blizzard at the end of my hallway.....







Thanksgiving 2007

The contents of the china closet got it's anuual wash and polish...



The Roseville is moved to the top of the china close to make way for the food and festivities....



I found the dining room under all the stuff that accumulated since last Thanksgiving and the table is ready to be set....



Martha would be proud!



Everyone left Mom and Dad at the table....



Thanksgiving Aftermath - a fridge full of leftovers and 2 dishwasher loads of dishes - a fun and thankful day!

Saturday Cleaning Project

Its amazing how much gunk comes this each time it gets taken apart and thrown in the dishwasher - but alas, the sparkle that results is worth it - and yes, I am still learning how to use my new camera so I am just taking pictures of most anything!


a Mad Halloween

Someone in a nearby town must be Mad for Halloween - or for Alfred E. Newman!
