Christmas Stuff

Well, I fauxto-shopped these pix so you couldn't see the toothpaste spatter on the mirror or dust doggies on the floor, blinds and other surfaces. (Larger than dust bunnies, the doggie variety is a 50/50 mixture of long haired dachshund fur and dust - hence the name.) The above Advent Box was a new purchase this year. So adorable, each drawer has an ornament with the star for the little so-sad-it's-cute Charlie Brown Christmas tree on the 25th.

The little terracotta angel (left) was a gift from my mom-in-law, the angel holds something different in her hands depending on the season: right now she's holding some vintage glass ornaments and sporting a beaded garland in her fruit halo.

The little house came in a live centerpiece from my folks a couple of Christmases ago. Reese and I put the "snow" and people and trees all around it. His favorite part is putting the mailman at the front door. Hmmm, look closely, I think he has some packages from Amazon under his arm.

This is our fireplace that you hardly EVER need in Georgia. On that rare occasion that you DID need some heat, it doesn't actually radiate any perceivable amount, it's mostly decorative and provides a place for Trumpet to dig inside the house.

This last shot below is my homage to Sally Jean Alexander, all done in her signature bluish-greenish color palette and silver, it sits on my studio table.
