Yes, another Christmas present. This one for her sister.
This was her FIRST foray with clay. I had no idea she was working with clay. This blew me away. She could easily sell these. They are so cute. But, she refuses to sell. Money does not motivate her!
The whole sneaker is hand painted by you know who — 14-years old. First time. She knew she could do it. Got the mother to buy her a pair of white sneakers. Painted them. They are a Christmas present to the mother. How special.
I am sure she could sell such sneakers at quite a price. Not interested. Will NOT part with her work. Has to stay in the house. She has only made one exception. For a friend of mine who was dying from cancer.
What can I say other than that I feel blessed. She gets better by the month. This picture is blinking beautiful. It is already up on the wall. We all, as has been the custom for the last 4-5 years, got amazing works of art by her.
This was last year.
Just a FEW pictures for the record. This blog has become our organic diary. We all know we can go check, pictorially, what important things happened on any given day. Actually quite a record. 7-pictures, everyday, WITHOUT FAIL, for 6 odd (& very odd) years or so. You should try it.
Note, I said ‘HER’. Not I. All her doing. I just had to drive her to Westminster, Vermont, to pick it up. She found it on the Internet. Yes, it is a KIA. A 2016 Kia Optima EX with the WORKS — & what works they are. Quite the car. Newest & fanciest car at our address.
Just a snapshot. A collage. NOT COMPREHENSIVE. Much more, BUT I haven’t got around to capturing it all.
Yes, we still have 3 Christmas trees, BUT for the first time in 14-years ONLY one is real. Two fake! Yikes. NOT my decision. But, someone — & we will not name names — wanted a PINK Christmas tree. Hard to find a real Christmas tree that is pink. SMILE.
Two Santa villages. 10 Advent calendars.

Yes, you are free to steal these pictures.
Christmas Last Year. Very different look!
This was NOT planned. Happened to see myself in a mirror. Camera, for a change, was HANDY. So, here. I am NOT used to going unshaved for long. Will have to shave now.
Merry Christmas 2020. Cheers.
