Before I show you the real tree, here's a little painting I made with watercolours.
It measures approx. 14 x 20cm (that's approx. 5½ x 8ins.)
It's painted on strong 300gsm watercolour paper with Scmincke paints, my favourite!
Have I got time to list it on Etsy before christmas?
Click here if you'd like to have a look at the original painting my shop. Please be quick if you'd like it to arrive with you before christmas as the last date for posting to the USA is 11th December. (UK customers have until the 18th.) ~ Thankyou for looking! :)
Now onto the real tree...
If you've visited me here in christmases past you'll remember my trusty old fairy. She's survived yet another year much to Youngest Daughter's pleas to get a new one. "She's not even a Barbie!" she exclaimed in disgust.
Good! I don't want Barbie dressed up, thankyou VERY much! ;)
I have nothing against Barbie in particular although I was actually a Sindy girl as a child. I had a Tressy too. Anyone remember those?
For those of you who don't know who Tressy was and for those of you who do and would like to go back in time for a moment, here's an old fashioned ad from long ago. The part where the hair comes out of the top of her head has to be seen.
I just noticed on the video it said 'Jess Hair stylist'. I can't make any claim to that fame I'm afraid! I remember my own Tressy's weird hair snake thing got jammed and that was the end of those Fabulous Hairstyles.
I'm getting off track. Back to the christmas decorations.
Not the best photo to show how they look but you get the idea. :)
Look at that, we're all christmas treed up and it's not even cold today.
My roses think it's spring!
