Hello there my friends. Another Wednesday – another 7 days closer to Christmas. Where do the days disappear to? I really want to apologise to those who didn’t get a comment from me last week – I did visit – I did try to leave a comment – but google refused to play. I always comment as glitterandglue google account… but by the end of the list it was refusing to add the glitterandglue bit! Consequently it was trying to make me comment on an anonymous google account – so, of course, very sensibly, your sites weren’t allowing that! I was incredibly disappointed – but I did see your desks and your work.
So, this week… Absolutely empty desk syndrome going on here – so I thought … a little indulgence?… a couple of photos of my decorations?
This lovely decorators glass brick. When away in the caravan during the summer holidays I met up with Daughter number 1 and my grand daughter. We popped into a craft fair in the local village hall – and there was a delightful lady selling these bricks, with an etched design on them and little lights inside. We couldn’t make up our minds, until, suddenly, out from behind the counter came this gorgeous design. Decision instantly made – my birthday present from Joy and family was bought! It is so lovely when switched on in a darkened room – just the nativity tableau and the words “O Holy Night”.
On the lounge windowsill, the first thing to come out of the Christmas boxes, is this lovely set John made about 20 years ago. Simply chunky blocks of wood, well sanded, pyrography designs on each one, then acrylic paint. He may have given them just one coat of yacht varnish – but each year out they come – a lovely reminder of what Christmas for us is all about, and of the 45 Christmases I had with John.
So that’s me this week, folks. I’ll trust google behaves this week and I can come visiting and leaving comments! Next Tuesday evening I shall be in Nottingham for one night, enjoying the Swing Band Christmas concert and carol event which my grand daughter will be in – so I’ll ask someone to link my post in for me so that I don’t miss the last week before Christmas!
Take care everyone. God bless.
