A Thread of Delight

Recently, I found myself playing with Photoshop. 

            (click pictures to enlarge)


 
Experimenting with the different mediums available.




I came across this one,






Which delighted me because . . .





I never had the patience to finish something so beautiful with needle and thread.

(This is why I love technology!)

Candy Cane Christmas Eve

Here are a few snapshots of our Christmas Eve table.


  

This year I accented the table with peppermint candy,



candlelight,



and candy canes.




In each napkin I snuck a candy cane into the napkin ring.



So simple.



I think these classic Hammond natural mint pillow candies are adorable.



I do wish you a wonderful Christmas Eve.

Twelve Days of Christmas

When my husband and I began dating, almost 30 years ago. . . (*wow*)




I remember my first Christmas with him.




He gave me a gift earlier than I have ever gotten a Christmas gift before.




I look puzzled and asked him why he was giving me my Christmas present so early.



He then explained to me that this was our " Twelve days of Christmas " and each day he would present me with a gift.

And he did.

I have been spending every Christmas with him ever since.

Christmas Surprises

This year is the first year I have ever had a white christmas tree.





After I strung the lights,




I came across these ornaments I had purchased last year.




Which I had totally forgot about.





What a pleasent surprise they were!






And we all know, Christmas surprises are the best kind.

Free Animated Santa Blog Graphic!

I found this vintage postcard of Saint Nicholas and fell in love with the way it represented Santa Claus.

Since he had a corncob pipe, smoke was a must in this design!

The lipstick for writing " Merry Christmas " gave it the whimsy I was looking for.

Enjoy!

          Sweet Days

          " There was Everton taffy around Christmas time,





          With its delicate essence of nutmeggy rime;

          And sourballs and doughnuts and huge candy toys




          For that life of the child that was buileded of joys!


           
          Ah, dear little shop on the green little street,

           

          I want to go back to those days that were sweet. "

                        - F. McKinsey 1907
