Nellie"s Needles

Friday, December 14, 2007


I fly north today and won't have Internet access for a week. I'll be back after Christmas. In the meantime, here's a bit of holiday humor from our house.
This is the area over our kitchen sink. Lee is holding a piece of fabric to cover the daylight from the window into the courtyard. Geriatric Elvis standing under the mistletoe is his contribution. The beaded wire tree is made by my sister-in-law in Memphis. My friend, Alicia, painted the light bulbs and I thread wrapped styrofoam balls. The "sugar plum" fairy stirring a pot is my kitchen mascot. She lives in this spot and is a part of every arrangement.

I wish all of you happy holidays!

Happy holidays Nellie!! I love your geriatric Elvis. My postcard exchange group has just had a swap called "What about Elvis?" - so much fun, but none of us thought of the geriatric one!! You really made me laugh tonight.
