A Bit of Christmas and Some Bling...


Despite the illness running through the house...we did manage to get some of our Christmas finery up! I love this little Santa..not one I created but so cute!

This piece is one of mine..from a set of little houses I created last year..I did manage to keep a couple that I liked. I think I did about 40 of them! Here is the little Inn..it is about 2"s high.


Some of you may know that my hubby Jim is a Rock man..a Mineralogist in fact.

I have alot of fun trying to catch these bits of bling in macro shots.

The colorless ones challenge me.

What does my hubby want for Christmas..a whole other kind of bling..rocks..and more rocks..you should see the basement!! He is pretty easy to shop for though!!


So Jim might just get his rocks all tied up in a bow. Uhmm that just sounded wrong didn't it.....giggle...ehemmm..sorry...

OMG if we get started commenting on your husband's rocks you might have to take your blog someplace a whole LOT less G-rated. Giggling uncontrollably...rather than a bow to tie 'em up in, how 'bout you make a soft, snuggly satchel for 'em? Remember, measure twice, cut once. ;)

Guess the Inn can't house hubby's rocks. (Love Sheila's comment btw)
Love the shot of the silver bow.

Sarah, I love the little inn!! 40 of them bet that explains why you didn't paint any this year. Great picture of the minerals, transparent items are really hard to capture but you did an amazing job, beautiful, just like ice!!

Now, LMAO and I love Sheila's comment!!! You are a hoot!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
Brenda

Yeah it made me giggle!!! Everything looks good when you add a pretty bow.
I have tons of amethyst that would look so pretty with your bow! Enjoy!

What a cool idea to collect rocks. You must learn a lot of these things from your husband. :)

I love your Christmas things especiall that little Inn!

I've decided to start leaving comments on my favorite blogs in the morning (well, my morning) instead of waiting until night when I should be in bed. That way I'll be around more to see everyones beauty!

So now I'm off to take a look at the things I've missed!

Blessings,
Christine
