I have been ill for quite some time, and I won't bore you with details, as I found it incredibly boring to experience, so I know you don't want to hear. I am going to put up some photos of the Christmas decorating I did get done before I got worse, then I will follow with some costume stuff and other posts.
Here is my needlepoint nativity that I bring out each year. It is one of my favorite needleworks from a kit. I scatter nativity scenes about the house, since that is what Christmas is all about. I love my new bell jar and think the gold and snow frosted trees with the white figures went well with my white theme tree.
Last of all are pictures of my lovely Matryoshka doll that I bought in Sitka, Alaska on my wonderful trip this year. ( Post to come of that.) I had the luck to be there in September at the end of the season and was able to get her for half price, as I would never have been able to afford such a finely painted one otherwise. I loved having her near my wonderful dry flower arrangement that I got in Pikes Market from Seattle. I had quite the time making the ten hour drive home with luggage and passengers and what not and not getting the flowers crushed. It made it very well in the box I had brought for the purpose. Then there are a couple vignettes from my bedroom decor, you might even get a peek at my sweet daughters one Christmas when they were small.
