Yes, it appears that I only painted two houses in 2019. I did not get a chance to seal the houses until a few weeks ago, because of cold weather and Covid-19. (I can’t varnish if someone in the household sinuses gets upset around paint and varnish.)
These are California Creations houses. The company went out of business in the early 2000s. Yes, these have been in storage waiting for me to paint them.
I haven’t travel due to ice and snow on the ground. May art and craft projects remain incomplete because it is to cold to varnish them. Since I taken a lot of pictures, go check out my flower blog. Up Close to Flowers
Some of these photos were taken at Home Depot, outside of grocery stores, or anywhere where the flowers caught my attention.
On Thanksgiving, I asked my husband if he had any preferences for when I put up the Christmas tree. He said “No.”
On Black Friday, late in the afternoon, a brought the Christmas tree and the tree skirt up from the basement. My husband told me “You are suppose to do that while I am at work.” I think he just wanted me to cook supper and watch TV with him.
This is how my tree looked on Friday.
On Saturday, I added decorations.
My husband told me “You can put up the tree. It looks like you really want to.” I told him “No, I will put it up on Tuesday when I bake cookies.”
Sunday, I added lights to the tree.
Husband shakes head.
Monday, I put an angel on top of the tree.
Husband roll eyes.
I did get a letter from Santa.
Tuesday, I took the tree out of the box.
Husband comes home at lunch and asks what I did with the nicely decorated tree box.
Husband gets a look from me.
Here’s the decorated tree. Can a tree have too many ornaments?
I have come to realize, if I just left the tree in the box, I wont have to wrap presents because all the Amazon boxes would have match the tree.
Here are my latest vases done with polymer clay. I took some blue and mixed in a little black to get the dark blue color. I wrapped the glass vases with the dark blue and added the flowers. I wanted the vases to have an oriental feel to them.
