Christmas 2013 in my home - for my sister in Perth
For the last four years I have spent Christmas at home alone as I have been completely over Christmas by the time it has come around. i am glad I did that, however last Christmas I did not enjoy being alone and vowed I would spend it with friends again in 2013.
Well I am thoroughly enjoying it being Christmas this year. I guess having those alone times has re-invigorated me to get all inspired and have friends around again. I have old time 'jukebox' music on, bopping around the house, decorating, singing and Facebooking, all at the same time and now blogging as well…..LOL
I have been decorating the house for an early Christmas Sunday lunch, tomorrow, and I thought I would like my sister Sue, in Perth (the west coast of Australia) see what I have been doing so she feels a bit more involved. I miss her.
Above is a wreath I decorated for the front door. Each year I make it a bit different. On your right is a Christmas tree I made and each year decorate it a little bit different also.
Below are flowers I have on the mantle for tomorrow's lunch. You can see a self portrait - when I was 41 - on the wall and another in the mirror - what I look like now LOL.
On the bottom right is another tree with all my beaded stars on it. I thought I could have this on display tomorrow also.
So sister Sue, here are some pictures for you darlin' so you can see how my home looks during Christmas. Loads of love to you and your family, Merry Christmas.
