Making Christmas Last A Little Longer

Hello my friends.  I've missed sharing photos here on this little blog of mine.  Life sure gets busy, and this blog gets neglected when that happens.  There are still some photos from Christmas that I wanted to post here; hope you don't mind.  I'd better get 'em out before Spring officially arrives!

This paper Eiffel Tower ornament was created by my friend, Carol.  It's covered in glitter and adorned with crystals, berries, and paper poinsettias and leaves that she handcrafts.  I am blessed to have received a box full of these!


Knowing my love of gardening, my stepmother gave me this hand-painted ornament one Christmas many years ago.


I'm nuts about grapes.  Couldn't pass up this delicate glass beauty on clearance many years ago.


A favorite aunt of mine gave me this years ago, a little hummingbird in a tiny woven basket.


Love this big, flower-bedecked glass ball.


These belong to my 14 year old daughter, who loved dancing and anything Disney princess when she was small.  This is Alice In Wonderland...close enough.  ;-)


On a trip to Disney World in 2010, we picked up the big mouse ears in a Christmas shop.


My mother-in-law decorates so beautifully for Christmas every year.  She places pine cones of all sorts in a big bowl on her living room table.



Glittery, pale green poinsettia, also at my mother-in-law's house.


I've loved snowmen for as long as I can remember.  These little fellows sit on my kitchen windowsill.  Each one has a nickel embedded in its base.  I think they are called Belsnickels, but I couldn't find any info online about them.


Soft sculpture snowmen are my favorite.


Cristabel, playing with a package decoration.  Now it is her very special toy.


A robin outside the window, a harbinger of spring.



One last Cristabel picture.  :-)


Thanks so much for dropping by today!

Peace and blessings to you,

Such gorgeous ornaments! Sophie is really loving Alice in Wonderland right now...love all the pretty and different pinecones too (Sophie picks up almost everyone we see at the park). Oh I wish Christmas were longer....sigh.

Oops......
I began to think I may have missed some of your photos here and I sure have. These are wonderful and they almost make me want Christmas to come...not yet. I love summer too much. Your robin photos are great. They sure are a sign of Spring.

Carol is so generous with her crafting and she has sent you a wonderful Eiffel tower ornament.

Love all the decorations. I see Cristabel is stealing the show..she is such a beauty. Love those eyes.
