Hello my Tuesday FRIENDS ♥
I know I've been missing again.... 😒
The first week we had gone to my parents for Thanksgiving ...which we celebrate on the Saturday after there. We were having such a good visit that we ended up staying a few days longer. Bob had vacation days he had to use so I rearranged my schedule to be free too.
While we were all there we decided to decorate my parents house for them. They love Christmas decorations but just aren't able to do it themselves any longer.
This is their all seasons back porch where they spend the majority of their time.
It's wall to wall nick knacks and things different members of the family have made over the years so it makes decorating a challenge.
My Mom is a hoarder of all things made by us as kids and adults. 😏
We drug out these gems from the past just to see if the grandkids could guess what the were. They couldn't... can you ?
They were made it the late sixties and are very brittle so we left them in the box.
This wreath that I made her in 1983 is still in great shape so we hing it.
It is crocheted with cotton crochet thread and very small hook. I made 10 of them that year and my hands hurt just thinking about it. Mine was destroyed in a fire years ago and I would love to make another one.... but I don't think I could survive it 😒
I'm not even sure I can get my current gift projects finished this year 😓 the hands are really screaming at me.
This week I am trying to get the house decorated and it's very slow going...
Between my hands and my back I'm almost useless. Bob has had to pick up the slack and he's been very good about it.
My little trees are done ...
There are actually 3 trees in that box 😤
The bigger tree is getting there. It's actually a much smaller tree than we used to have so we've had to go through and decide what ornaments are going to get used and what's not.
I don't think I'll be getting out my Santa's or Snowmen this year. So once the tree is done I think we are too.
Here's my drink for the week... a little tea break we took last night while sorting things out.
