Gifts and projects

The iron lantern and the high mercury glass one are the gifts my children gave me for Christmas...



















...it's been a long time I'd like to reproduce mercury glass by myself...finally I found some suggestions on the web and I tried...

















....silver leaves and special glue...I made also two fabric pom pom...













...simple projects for festive days!

Vale, wow!!! your children do know their mother preferences, those are great gifts!!!!
Mercury glass... is it a very thin and delicate glass, like the old christmas balls?
Hope you had a wonderful christmas.
Cariños,

Really liked your iron lantern!
Haven`t seen anything like it before!
What do you eat for xmas dinner??
We have pork rib, and all that stuff I`m sure you know all about.

Even more snow has come...and my husband are outside trying to get rid of some of it... - I am happy we have a big garage for both the cars so we dont have to dig them out of the snow everytime we are going away...

Have a nice day - this three days we work between 10 - 14, lovely!!

Happy New year to you too Vale. It was such a long time since I saw your blog so I had to spend sometime here :) What a surprise with snow. You saw that we have a lot more now and -20 :)))) I do like you - long for the spring. I will never forget when we was outside Milano (Lecco - Lago di Como) - and the spring came the weekend we spend there. It was fabulos. Everyone was happy and out in the streets. Hope we go to Italy next summer. "See you soon". H.
