 More watercolors.

I'm still recovering from cataract surgery; going ok I guess.

 Above-One of my all time favorites.  Acrylic on wrapped canvas.
 I use watercolors much like acrylic painting-I build on the layers.

Santa, Sleigh & Stocking

I purchased this Santa and sleigh over 20 years ago at Red Oaks furniture store in Long Grove, Illinois.  I loved that store.  So much inspiration and beauty.  Santa stands about 20" tall and the sleigh is 18" tall, 24" long and 10 wide.   
Santa's bagful of toys was a great find at Goodwill this year along with the 36" sequined stocking.

Christmas Cloche

 A touch of vintage.  I purchase resin and bottle brush trees at second hand stores when I see them.  I always use them for something.  The "snow" is wool roving with lots of glitter on top.

Feliz Navidad

 God's Eyes hung from the chandelier, peppers decorated the tree centerpiece and organza napkins added a bright, festive touch to the glassware.
 Seating for 12 with two long tables.
We had a small, intimate dinner for six on Christmas Eve.  Our festive holiday fiesta.

Polymer Clay Magnetic Pins

 Still practicing my knitting.  I liked the wispy shawl so much, I making another.
Wearing different polymer clay magnetic pins on the long scarf is an added bonus.
