"The sun is new each day."
Wow, TWENTY-ELEVEN, can you believe it? Seems like it was just "the new millennium" a couple of years ago. I still think of the 90's as last decade. Not so much, huh?
So, I'll just admit it: I am a Jew who loves Christmas -- not the religious Christmas, but the secular Christmas. Growing up I was always so jealous of the decorated trees, bells, santa, stockings and huge present opening extravaganzas. I still celebrate Hanukkah, and love that as well...how can you go wrong with lighting candles and eating latkes?! (I just salivated). However, this year I spent my first really snowy Christmas is eons in Wisconsin with my boyfriend's family, whom I adore. It was delightful! We had lots of (fattening) food, good cheer and my very own stocking and presents under the tree!! :)
So, speaking of trees I thought I'd share some pics of Christmas trees around San Francisco that I thought were pretty/funky. Enjoy:
BREAD TREE: Everything on this tree is edible. Amazing!
NEIGHBORHOOD TREE: Love the randomness!
ANTHROPOLOGY TREES: Very crafty!
And here's snowy Wisconsin. It was beautiful (but happy to be back in snowless San Francisco :):
Coming soon to this blog: pics of presents I made, new fabric, sketchbook sundays, and much much more.
Bye for now!
