I remember back in January, when the year started off so incredibly horribly for us and everyone else, I couldn't wait to see the end of 2013 and here we are again, less than 30 days from another year gone by.
After Russell left for the week, I broke out the decorations and got to work. It was A LOT of work too, and I can't find some stuff I know I have. There are enough decorations and ornaments to do every room in the house, but I kept it confined to the livingroom. It took hours and hours too, although I was trying to clean the house and organize stuff at the same time.
Putz houses I got on ebay that are like the set my parents had when I was a kid.
I really like the way these pics came out without the flash. I am going to have to go into Sandwich and re-shoot all the 'Sandwich Giants' again.
Glass blobs on a bottle I made last year. Yes that's Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo.
Some needlework (back left snowman, center Santa, back right 3D sled scene) and a bowl of glittery bulbs.
I didn't do the beaded thing in the back, but I did do the beaded candle cup in the front.
The Christmas Shelf I made last year.
Those 2 open scenes play music when wound up and the characters around the center move around.
Make-It Bake-It kits I made back in the mid-70s. It's really hard to find these kits anymore.
