Remember cutting Snowfakes in school


Pretty Silver Trees and Foliage



Crepe Paper wrapped Amaryllis

 
Red and Aqua ~ Oh My Goodness



Lovely Candy Cones


Children's Artwork


Folded Tissue acts like ribbon and wrap


Cloth, Towels, Rice bag

Cookies to eat plus a beautiful vessel


Banana leaves, cinnamon, birch bark



Pick a color...any color

 
Craft Paper and Nature


Cut up old cards to personalize


Fold and Roll Ribbon to Embellish

I'm sure you will find
an idea
 or
 two
 to use for your own lovely gifts
 wrapped with care
 for the ones you love

The big guy in the red suit
will be here

Hi.....

by , in


Just thought I'd drop you a quick note

and

say

Hello

Wondering what you have all been up to



How is your Decorating coming along

Have you finished all of your Holiday Shopping

Did you venture outside and play in the snow

Have you been to the beach and played in the water

Have you wrapped all of your presents
...have you at least made a dent

Holiday Baking ???

Parties.....

What is on YOUR wish list
That's right YOU
not your kids or your spouse
or anyone else in the family or friends

YOU



It doesn't have to be perfect
Enjoy the Season


Peace and Love People

A visitor from Australia

by , in
So as I sit here
 in front of my computer
&
 gobble down
 this
breakfast of champions

Hey
this is not ordinary popcorn people
this is Smartfood...really
covered in powdered cheese flavor
it's good
and good for you
right

Ok
let's move on


Last night my SIL invited
the fam over to say goodbye
 to our cousins daughter
 who is visiting from Australia
Cass and her girlfriend
are doing a whirlwind tour
of the US and Canada
during their summer break
from University

You know
Los Angeles
 Yosemite
 Toronto
 Montreal
 New York
(that is all I can remember)
 then back home
 to the balmy summer
climes of Australia


Cass is the one back row second from the left
Nephew, Cass, Nephew, Mother, Sister, Moi, BIL
SIL (hostess), Niece, Brother (Host), Brother
This is a small sampling of my family
It was Wednesday after all
and most could not make it




Some of you may remember
my brother
from last years Christmas photos
He is still a cut up

This past summer
he won some Ballroom medals
He is quite the Hoofer



Father and Son
in a heated battle
Can you feel the intensity


It was great to see Cass
we had tons of fun
 and
lots of laughs as per usual
when we all get together

Her parents were here last summer
Maybe the next time
 we meet it will be
in the land of OZ


Happy Thursday Friends
Peace Love and Big Hugs
xOxO Nerina
