HAPPY NEW YEAR TO MY WONDERFUL BLOGETTES!
Before I remove my "Santa" background I thought I'd share some holiday pics from my dear daughter's home in IOWA. I spent a fun, exciting week visiting her and her family, which has recently increased by one kitten, to add to the 2 Golden Retrievers and one "old" cat.
It's is enough to say there is never a "dull moment" in their home!
But, lots of fun!
Here is their lovely living room tree -- I swear, a "million " lights! LOL
Here is a Jelly Cupboard that is so old it is leaning. From No. Carolina where he was stationed at Pope A. F. Base shortly after they were married.
This is an old "radio" cabinet with the legs cut off that belonged to MY grandfather.
How many of you remember "Chatty Cathy" dolls?? I dressed her as MRS. CLAUS several years ago. (Santa is a "BABY DOLL" who resides with my other daughter).
I had my youngest granddaughter try a pic.of one of the trees through a window as so many of you have. Not bad for my simple little camera, huh! LOL
This isn't really Christmas, but a patriotic wall she did in her basement and I just love it. In the center pic. there are (copies) of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution she got at GW for 50 cents each. We framed 'em on red/star print fabric and don't they look great. Oh yes, the frame was $5.00 and it is 30" wide! Looks great on the Tyler Taupe wall!
This is the other side of the room...that red cabinet used to be "blonde." See what a little paint can do!
And here is the group that could make it that day! 3 of 5 of my Grand kids, 2 daughters, 1 husband, and 1 "significant other". (Not mine..He belongs to the daughter on the right at the table.)
So I was away for 7 days, and got home around midnight and this is how I was greeted. Well actually he did open ONE eye and I think there was a slight ME-OW. No sense making a big deal of it right...hey, I'm sleepin' here...keep it down! Gotta love 'em!
So that is how I spent my Christmas Vacation and had so much fun.
More on my projects coming in next post!
Come visit me!
Until next time...
