The New Year

Well I managed to do it again! I had great intensions of writing my blog twice a week, but as usual life comes along. It is now past the middle of the month, and this is my first post as such.
I have started with one of my favourite YouTube videos. This is an old one, but I keep on going back and watching it again and again. I am fascinated by the colour.
The following pictures were supposed to be posted on twelfth night. I always think it is so sad, when all the decorations come down, the rooms look bereft!

The overflowing tray on the left is of handmade ornaments, both gifted and made by me. The ones on the right are commercial ones. Notice the Christmas lobster from Canada at the front! 

This is the pile of wall-hangings that go up every year. I used to make a new one each year, but I have run out of wall space and also momentum! 
These are ornaments and items my children and grandchildren gave to us. Some of them are at least thirty years old. I cannot bear to throw them out.
Hope you all had a wonderful festive season, and that the New Year is good to you all.
Till next time
