Greetings


I'm just checking in to say Merry Christmas.
Although, I'm sure I will be back before Christmas.
*
Here is a mirror reflection of my tall skinny crazy tree.
I promise I will get a full picture ASAP.
You see the problem is, if I get the whole tree from top to bottom, then you can see stuff. Well it's stuff that seems to mess up the picture. So I'm going to work on that.
*
If your interested, let me point out a few things in this one.
Yes, I do have two angels on top. One greets you from the back door and one greets you from the front door. I know it's crazy but I like it.
*
It really isn't 11:25 pm. I just don't keep my clock wound because it seems to bother some folks in the house in the middle of the night especially when it gongs....midnight.
*
Just at the right edge of the tree, you might see some glass icicles. Well, I didn't have to put them up this year or last year because they have been in place since Christmas two or maybe three years ago. I'm just about tired of them and plan to take it down this year. It's just some sticks or rather dead branches off of my red bud tree, spray painted gold with glass and plastic icicles hanging. Do you want to see the whole arrangement?
*
The cabinet reflecting in the mirror is my kitchen. Do you see the cabinet door through the bottom of the tree?
*
The mirror in the picture was a mantle mirror removed from a Victorian house the my dh was raised in. The house was torn down in the 1950's and his Mom retrieved this mirror and another. Nothing has been done to it. It is just as it was.
*
Enough of that. I'm sure you don't have time to read my rambling. So just let me tell you that I will be cooking Christmas dinner. I'm off work for the week and should have time for some ART fun. You'll see it if I do. Now, I probably should go to bed because I have to do some shopping tomorrow. But my attitude is good.
More later,
Sharon

  1. Well this warm post about the tree and icicle arrangement (YES I want to see it all!!) and mirror was just so nice to read tonight. I love the clock and the fact that time has stopped. I had a musical wall clock (or Mr. J does) that I had to stop because visitors that stayed overnight hated it, also. Kind of funny.

    We both have the week off......yippeeeee. I have no particular art planned. Do you?
