All is Calm

Possibly my favourite day of the year.


Boxing day.

The feast of Stephen.

The cooking has been done and we have delicious leftovers to eat until we get tired of it.The house is reasonable tidy and calm.

A Merry Christmas was had by all.

A little change in the festive decor this year..



..a bit of kitchen kitsch.
We usually hang these in the living room but I just couldn't be bothered to get the ladders out and it wouldn't be Christmas without them.


So I just lowered the clothes rack and hung them on.(Its rather off balance because all that ironing yeilded a mammoth harvest of tablecloths and I wasn't sticking them in a drawer to get all scrunched up again)

They'd been there for 3 days when my husband asked why I hadn't put up the santas.

It still took him 2 days to find them.

He was responsible for putting out all the cards.


He is very Artistic and found the perfect place for the one form my long time 'pen pal'
Carol Santora..co-ordinated with the clutter.

Can you spot the moose?



Tomorrow all this will be put away because this room is going to be re decorated.


As I was sitting here in the calm quiet house I thought I'd take some pictures of the crib I made from FIMO many years ago.

But at close Macro range the faces don't bear up well.

The Kings look more manic than magi-


Joseph has the eyes of a man who was up all night in a stable


and I wouldn't want these shepherds anywhere near my newborn babe.


But as a whole the group conveys the Christmas story.




Have a peaceful week.
