This tiny Fairy was sculpted from brown Prosculpt and I dressed her in dyed silk gauze. I gave her some beading and a beaded hanger so she could swing and sparkle in the breeze. She is for sale on my Etsy Shop
We really enjoyed Christmas this year...grandson Brandon and his wife Niki along with their two children, Lilly and Cameron and our daughter Linda and husband Johnny. Johnny's family joined us on Sunday...So it is all over and I will begin taking down the Christmas decorations because I have to have cataract surgery on my other eye on the 10th of January.
For some reason I failed to take many pictures and I hate that...guess I was enjoying my company so much I did not have time.
This little doll is my Great grand-daughter, Lilly. Dressed in a vintage style dress and hand knitted cap and bootees.

I just finished a tiny hanging fairy for my Great Grand-daughter "Lilly". She will get it Christmas morning. The Fairy is sculpted from Rose puppen fimo and dressed in antique lace and silk with mixed media wings....lots of German glass glitter to make her sparkle as she swings in the air.
I guess I am obsessed with taking pictures of my Christmas decorations. But, we have really enjoyed them this year. I had cataract surgery last month and since I also have glaucoma and have lost some sight in both eyes, I feel blessed that I can still see beautiful things. Anyway, I took more pictures because it looks as if Santa has dropped off some presents under the tree. I put a Folk Art Santa in front of the tree. I love that Santa...he was made by an unknown artist ( at least unknown to me, because the Antique shop where I bought him would not tell me the name of the artist and it was not signed.) Love to sit in this room with all the lights on drinking....coffee, tea or a nice glass of wine....it is very relaxing.
It is apparent, Barney does not want this knit sweater on.
Can you believe it is Christmas again!! The older I get the faster time moves. Anyway, I find that each year when decorating for Christmas I tend to decorate less and less. This year, the decorating is in the living and dining rooms only and a wreath on the front door. So, here are a few pictures...I must say, I do love my tree. Several years ago, we bought a new tree with lights on it and all the garlands I use have lights on them which certainly makes decorating much easier.
