I know that it is no secret,I am waiting for spring,but,
I have a few pictures taken this last Christmas which I would like to share.
Although in my home there was one empty chair this Christmas,we did have an enjoyable day.
A friend had given me this ice-sculpture candle holder.
I know they are meant to be used outside,but that didn't work too well,so I decided to use it as a centrepiece.
This is how it looked right after taking it out of the freezer.
In case you're wondering,the tea towel was to help absorb the melted water and also stabilize the candle.
The display lasted about 5 hours,and that in a warm room.
Here it has been burning for several hours.
All I had to do was occasionally pour off the water which was collecting in the plate and inside the ice.
Christmas,of course means gifts to the little ones.
My precious Kai,loves to put on make-up,whether it is mine or her own.She was a very happy girl to be getting her own Barbie make-up kit.
As you can imagine,anyone willing to allow it, was also made up throughout the day.
Kai and her Daddy,my son,Steve,are enjoying another one of her gifts,a velvet doodle art book.
I love to see the two of them enjoying time together.
One more close-up of my fashion Princess,applying her lipstick. You will notice that her nails are already painted with the nail polish in this kit.
Thought for Today:
You can't light a candle
To show others the way,
Without feeling the warmth
Of that bright little ray.
