A little of this and that

Some pics from the past week or so, in random order-
This beautiful cup is my Christmas gift to myself!  Isn't she lovely?

With the events that took place in CT, we could all use a little hope-don't you think?   I can't even imagine the pain they are going through.

Time for tea!

I was without my camera for a little less than a week (I forgot it at my daughters'), so today I just wanted to take some pretty pictures.  I had a little photoshoot with my beautiful handmade mugs.

Sunflower cup

Dahlia cup

Here is my crazy sister Jodie when the fam got together for my birthday.  (I still want to photograph my lovely gifts, but it's been so dark and rainy here.  I will eventually.)

Here's my sister Kim with her boyfriend.  Don't they look happy?  Poor Travis-it was his first time meeting us all, and we are a crazy bunch!

 This is Teddy-named Teddy because it feels like a teddy bear.  I used fleece sheets I found sitting in my closet.  It feels so nice and soft!  (The colored rings are t-shirts.) I made this rug for my sister's future daughter-in-law, Laiken.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!

This is my mom's.

This is what happens when I clean out my closet.  The size 4, 6, 8, and 10 jeans are going to Goodwill, but the t-shirts will go into rugs!

Tree lights!
I hope everybody has a blessed Christmas!

Michaelanne-I know you are busy taking care of newborns-very important work. And you've got that little boy at home. I'm sure you'll have the camera out on Christmas morning!
