Black, White and Bling.....

Yes, we are still creeping around the house to check out the decorations while Santa sleeps.  Yes...he's still sleeping....recharging his battery!  I love that photo just above.....yes....I do love it.  No I didn't drag out my christmas tree.  This is our vintage midget tree.  How midget....60cm tall.  How vintage?  Hmm....19 years.  Yes...this tree is 19 years old...and it hasn't grown!!!  I dressed it up with some gorgeous clear crystal blings and home made white baubles.  Pretty hard to tell unless you squint and tilt your head to the side and use your imagination....but the white cardstock was embossed before I made the baubles.  So...irl...they're pweeety pweeeety!!


This morning.....MOTH (Man of the House) asked me what he can give his Secret santa recipient.  I asked when the party was....his answer....today.  Grrr....luckily I managed to find a suitable gift and wrapped it up all nicely and he went to work one very happy man.  Then tonight....he came home to find that I had done a few lolly jars....done...as in tipped some lollies into small glass jars...and asked for one for one of his work colleagues.  So here it is ....prettied up beyond an inch of it's life.  I totally love the bauble card...I will be making 15 more as they were just too quick to make.

That's about it till tomorrow.....will find more stuff to take pics of.  I am going to do my christmas album after christmas...so these photos are for a reason.  hehehe.  Btw....MOTH came home with a Cadbury chocolate fondue set.  That was what he got from his SS.  Pretty cool!!!  I think we might have to road test it Christmas eve!!!  Asides from strawberries and marshmallows....what else is good for a chocolate fondue?
