After Christmas

Hello dear ones ~

I had plans on the posts I would do  before Christmas and then of course wish everyone the MERRIEST!!!  Unfortunately, I got sick just before Christmas ...and it knocked all of my plans to heck!  I did get to finish some of the projects I was working on for Christmas presents, but never got pix of the finished goods.  *pout*  

Pic of my mom MANY moons ago holding her Siamese kitty, who lived to 17 years!

I managed to have a lovely Christmas Eve with a few friends and my darling daughter.  Again, my addled brain never thought TO GO GET THE CAMERA!!!  The rest of this week I have been sleeping and napping a lot and I think I am beginning to feel a little better.  There was a nice dusting of snow Christmas Day, so it WAS a White Christmas for folks around these parts.  Which is really a rare thing to have just a bit of snow for Christmas Eve and a dusting for Christmas Day.  Then it was all gone!  Now snow is expected this weekend, but I hope it's not too much.  My car has a dead battery and can't be moved, so it will just have to sit snowbound if we get very much.  I plan to stay in and watch TV and crochet a little and continue to nap a lot!  LOL.

My sister, Judy, and her older daughter, Katherine, maybe early 80"s.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and is looking forward to a Happy New Year 2013!!  I have no plans for New Year's Eve, but that's okay - I have my kitty girls to keep me company!

My dear little Mummy and me a very long time ago.  (Maybe  in the late 70's or 1980)

I am looking forward to a wonderfully creative year, and enjoying times with all of my blog and crafting friends.  Also looking forward to Erica of Golden Egg Vintage's Valentine Swap!!  I have always enjoyed making Valentine gifties and cards and boxes, so this will be lots of fun, too!

One last picture - my dear Nanny and my 1st niece Brenda, this was from way back in the 60's  at my Sister Lorraine's house (Brenda's mom).

So, again ... happiness to all as the new year dawns on us!!!!

Until 2013,
