My glitter nutcracker is holding up like a champ!
In our tiny guest bath:
I practically had to sit on the toilet tank to get this shot. Doncha love old house baths?
(The tiger art is a cross stitch I did for John ages ago.)
On the antique radio cabinet:
And on our dining room apothecary:
I found this heavy cast iron owl at Old Time Potter for only 8 bucks, and it's my favorite new decoration. In fact, I think I'll be keeping it out year round!
And here's the over all entertainment center and tree in our back room:big house tour; most of the big stuff was the same this year; I just switched up the little vignettes. (I LOVE making table-top vignettes - can you tell?)
I hope I'm not boring you guys silly; it's actually kind of fun cleaning off my cell phone pics like this. Half the time I've already forgotten what I took. Ah! Like here's my favorite wrapping job of the year, for my friend Sharyn:
And way less pretty, but here's my purple breakfast juice from a few days ago:
(Ingredients: 2 big kale stalks, 1 medium stalk broccoli (stalk & all), 1/2 green pepper, 1 medium Gala apple, 1 "thumb" ginger, and 1 crap ton of red cabbage. It's good. Promise.)
I got to open a bunch of Christmas cards from you guys from the PO box; we got them late, so it's been an extended Christmas over here. And - at the risk of looking like an insufferable braggart - I HAVE to show you guys what arrived from Hannah all the way over in Germany:
It's about an inch tall, and quite possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I'm lucky it didn't break when I swooned. ;)
And finally, since you guys can't seem to get enough of her, here's Lily in another baby onesie:
I don't know why, but she reminds me of Cliff Clavin from Cheers in this photo.
"It's a little known fact, Norm, that the first cat t-shirt was made in pre-Neolithic Mesopotamia..."
The bad news is we're still struggling to stop Lily's over-grooming (she started throwing up the Kitty Prozac, so we're taking a break.) The good news is she really doesn't seem to mind wearing ridiculous baby clothes:
This is why I couldn't get off the couch last night; who could disturb that face?
Well, I'm off to start packing up decorations. Hope you guys have a great weekend!
