Christmas was nice and went too fast. I wish I could have spent more time with each member of my family. We often have theme Christmases and this year the theme was the 60's. Some of us dressed up (I wore a vintage psychedelic mu mu and looked a bit like Mama Cass!), we ate vintage food like fondue, deviled eggs and chex mix, played the gift game with presents from the 60's and watched a family slide show from the 60's. Here is a neat pic from the slide show of a family Christmas, probably before my time.
My father made that cabinet/shelf thing the TV is in. Pretty neat idea, I think.
Here is a Christmas tree from a couple years later. My father would flock them in the driveway. I like this one because it shows the relentless sunny Christmas weather of Southern California through the living room window.
This Christmas we had snow in Portland. It was the first time there has been more than 1" of snow in Portland on Christmas day since 1937. By the time we left my parents house it was almost all gone. Here is a shot of my parents backyard from that afternoon.
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!
This week I will be posting some new printed items in the shop!
