Decorations and Cookies

This year flew by, and December was no exception.  I was very remiss in not getting any pictures of Christmas lights in town and in our neighbourhood.  Oh and speaking of lights, my totally awesome psychedelic spotlight died after just a few weeks and I had to take it back.  But they were sold out so I got my money back.  I was sooooo bummed.  Anyways, I didn't take hardly any pics and the ones I did take, I neglected to post until now. 

I shot this pic of a neighbour's house with the laser lights, but I didn't feel like dragging my tripod out so this is what I got.  It's not too bad actually.

Sunrise on Dec. 17th

I had to go to the Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis for an appointment and I was pleasantly surprised at how beautifully decorated it was.  This glass sculpture was created by McDermott Glass Studios in Sandwich.  Clearly influenced by Dale Chihuly's work!  You can't see it but there are lights that change colour inside.  


I love Christmas train villages!!!!!!


This Santa sleigh rotated around in the air.

If I hadn't had an appointment, I would have been roaming around shooting more photos.  I think they said Santa comes in on weekends or something and I guess that's where he sits.



I love gingerbread cookies but it seems that no one else does, so I made a batch for me.  I got a couple new cookie cutters this year:  Seattle Seahawks logo and a Sasquatch.  The Hawks cutter is going to take some practice. 



 I love the Sasquatch one! I'm going to have to make a batch of just Bigfoot.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas.

  1. I love that glass ornament. So many cookies JoJo, who's eating them, you? You're like me, you don't need them. The bigfoots are unusual.

    1. That chandelier is amazing isn't it? I don't need the cookies but I like to have something sweet in the house. I don't eat a lot of them though. I still have 3 left and I made them almost 2 weeks ago.

  2. Omgosh JoJo. As beautiful as your pics are - and always are! - I have to say the Sasquatch cookies have captured my heart in this post! I LOVE them! They just make me smile, and seriously, I laughed out loud when I saw them! Where in the world did you find a Sasquatch cookie cutter???

  3. You probably won't thank me for making this suggestion, but why don't you enter the world of dolls' houses? I only have 10, none of which are finished...

    1. I don't have room Val. I had a dollhouse when I was a kid...it's still at my parents' house and all the furniture which came from the Yield House and was quite pricey.

  4. A Christmas train village AND a quasi-Chihuly! Bliss.

    Sasquatch is definitely the win on shapes.

    1. Thank you!!! I kinda wish my stepdaughter had decided to get married now before they take down the decorations! I have a feeling they'll be gone by the time of the ceremony which is in a few weeks.
