Tis the Week before Christmas


Some years ago my friend Shirley started giving me beautiful Christmas ornaments for Christmas.  She picked them with care so that they reflected what I happened to be doing at that time.  I enjoy getting them out of the box each year to put on the tree.  If I am carefull I should have them to remember our times together for years to come.  The school bus reflects the 20 years I drove one.



This is one of a set of three flowers in little pots.  They reflect my love of gardening.



This little bird is one that I chose myself because we love to see the birds at the feeders in our backyard.



This little Irish Snowman was chosen by my Husband's relatives from Scotland that was purchased in a Christmas Shop in Niagara on the Lake one summer when they were visiting for our oldest Son's wedding.  Our geneology is Irish hense the sentiment.   I have many more but maybe I will save that for mosiac Monday.

LOVE the Irish snowman ... I have to HAVE TO find one. That is darling!
All your ornies are beautiful, isn't it fun to refresh your memory of them as you put them on the tree each year?

Merry Christmas ~

I love all your Irish ornaments!! We have several on our tree too, with Irish ancestry on both sides of the family and a daughter who competed in Irish step- dancing for 9 years. Was just at the Irish import store this afternoon to pick up my Christmas crackers. Have yourself a very Happy Christmas!!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
