Happy Belated Holidays/New Year

"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 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!


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!
