Post-Christmas Bling Has Arrived!

ornament-2I have received my winnings! A trio of tasteful and highly discreet little fandom Christmas ornaments that I was so lucky to have won on Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas raffles held by the lovely Guylty over the past couple of weeks… as a matter of fact, that raffle was actually on my birthday… though Guylty didn’t know it and neither could the random picker protocol… how about that?!?

ornament-1These would definitely look wonderful on the Christmas tree, adjacent to our weird and wonderful assortment of blown glass ornaments, sparkly poinsettias and random kid creations, but I couldn’t bear to stash them away with the other Christmas decorations that may or may not be taken down this weekend (that’s laughable, actually… normally our Christmas decorations stay up for months after Christmas…) so I decided to decorate my little artificial bonsai tree in my office instead. It looks great with a touch of bling!

They are beautiful, Guylty! You are a crafter extraordinaire! And I also loved the Christmas postcard… how I’d love to catch that man under a mistletoe… *snickers*… it would be mistletoe all through the house, I’m afraid! But I digress… Love how subtle the reference to Richard is… just a sparkly little “R” to pay homage. (*Coughs* If I didn’t already have a 4ft Thorin cut out and multiple photos and magnets of Mr. Armitage, nobody entering my office would even know!) LOL.

Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year! Hope your holidays have been as blessed as mine have been. (((Hugs)))!

    Warmest thoughts for the new year to you too ! The bling looks lovely in the tree 😊 and yes that card is wicked 😘

    Yay – at least they have arrived before the new year. Glad if you like them – they were fun to make and made it into a good few Christmas presents here. Now I have to go and buy new wire 😉

      Oh, totally LOVE them, not just like them! And make for excellent gifts! I love handmade ornaments- even ones from popsicle sticks from the hands of little kiddos. But these are a cut above! =)

    Perfect for any time of year. Wishing you a wonderful 2017!


    • jholland · December 30, 2016

      You as well, Linnet! And I agree- shame to hide them away for a year. Or 8-10 months, more likely. LOL
