WOYWW, After Christmas and Turkish Coffee

Good morning my bloggy friends!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas, surrounded with family and friends! I had all my family with me , my mom stayed with me, my brother came with his family and my daughter with her boyfriend! We had a lovely gathering, there were lots of presents, good food and happiness....my brother brought his guitar and we sang Christmas carols and what ever song we could think of! It was good fun! I went to church with my mom and it was a lovely service!
Well my mom just left, she is travelling with my brother back home so I am on my own at the moment, thinking what jobs I have to do....one is tidying up after all that Christmas cheer, a big bag full of stuff to take to the recycling bins - all that wraping paper wasted! Huh! Some washing to do, packing my bags because tomorrow I am flying to England to spend New Year with my DBF! So quite busy I must say....
Now it is of course Wednesday and time to show desks to the world - Stamping Ground is where you have to go if you want to join in, I don't think many will be joining in....it is Boxing day in England and we have a holiday too but I guess the ladies from over the oceans will be back to work today!
Here is my desk....yes I just made some turkish coffee and I will be enjoying it whilst writing....nothing interesting on my desk today....ha, ha I need a rest from all that crafting!



Here are a few photos of my Christmas tree - it is quite small this year but I love it - it reminds me of times when I was little and I went to my grandmom and grandads farm - they had a christmas tree like that but no baubles on it - in those days people couldn't afford them so there were, sweets, cookies and gold colored walnuts, and little apples on the tree - how lovely - wish we could go back to those times!




The lovely angels I recieved from the two Jos are enjoying their top spots!






Here is another photo of the tree with the star on top....


And here is my Christmas wreath.........


Ok then, I better get up to tidying up....
Have a lovely rest of the holidays, I will try to wizz around as much of you as I can!
Lots of hugs to all of you  and happy holidays!

  2. I can see you are having a purply/pink Christmas there. I have been changing my colour for the past few years, purple to turquoise and now lime green, think I'll be back to purple next year. Have a happy New Year BJ#15

  4. I'd forgotten it was Wednesday til I switched the computer on but of course I wouldn't miss out our fun for all the world even if life is pretty manic at ours today :-)
    I've done the early prep that I can do for the party later[quiche, icing of buns, cooking of mini sausages etc] so there is just the last minute bits to go in the oven now. Now enjoying a quick bit of blog hopping and a coffee :-)
    Here's hoping 2013 brings good health and much happiness for all :-)
    Biggest hugs,

  8. I love all the rather sexy purple decorations in your house, quite decadent!! We sang carols and played daft games too, that's what having everybody back home means to me!
    Thank you so much for all your support and friendship this year, Dolores, it really has meant a huge amount :)
    Sending best wishes for an amazing 2013...

  9. It sounds like you have had a wonderful family Christmas. We had Hubby's Mum over for Dinner which was rather nice. After Hubby left to take her home it was into my new PJs and playing with my new toy..a 7" tablet. Quite a learning curve!
    Have a great New Year.
    Hugs

  11. Hi Dolores
    Sounds like you had a fun filled Christmas. your tree looks really pretty. I think sookies on the tree sounds great too. My Mum told me a story about her cousin who did the same until her dog kocked the tree over and ate all the cookies... he he dogs deserve Christmas too

  14. You're right, there isn't a lot going on today, but it's fun to get together with everyone. I have a picture of my Christmas tree on yesterdays post, yours is just lovely, short and fat like me! lol Waving hi from the rainy, but wishing it was snowing hills of North Carolina for the last WOYWW of 2012!!

  17. Your tree is lovely! I miss the days of home made decorations too. The new ones are gorgeous, but somehow they just don't give you that same feeling.
    Hope you enjoyed boxing day in England.
    Happy WOYWW and may the New Year bring you lots of happiness, good health and blessings.

  20. I'm late, very late, but I just wanted to pop in and wish you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. By the time you read this you should be in England with your DBF - how lovely for you. I love your little Christmas tree - it reminds me of the the trees we had when I was a child. Elizabeth x #30
