Wednesday and Finally Some Photos

 I have been a bit remiss in posting pictures of finished projects, and while I am doing that I may as well post some pictures of the tree.

This year the tree is downstairs, just don't know how Kris's cat Eiko would behave with it up here.

No angel on the top this year as the ceiling is a bit lower in the basement. We would need to cut a hole to fit it. As is usual, the tree is in mostly red and silver with a few special ornaments in other colours, lots of angels, Santas, and few special ones from students throughout the years.

Upstairs was not decorated as much as I usually do, the tree is a big part of the décor usually. I did my best and this is what I came up with.

This little tree is one of the few things I have left from my ceramics classes. It does need a good dusting and once baking is done it will get a good cleaning.

My Nativity sets and a couple of snowmen sit atop the fireplace/entertainment center.

The corner nearest my desk has the rest of the ornaments. As you can all see I really did not feel much like decorating. I do have a bit more to do (mostly candles and candy dishes) and I hope to complete that soon.

Now on to what I have completed as far as projects go.

The simple pouch I made for my cell phone. Big enough that I can find it in my purse with ease.

My hip hitting sweater. Still not sure about the neck and perhaps if I make this pattern once again I will change the neckline.

Citrus sugar scrubs (some for me and some to give as a small token gift).

Just a little case to keep my ereader from getting dusty sitting on my night table.

Matching masks for Christmas 2020. Wonder if I can actually get a picture of us all wearing them.

Baking began as well.

Almond bark and chocolate coconut candy.

Peanut butter cups made into bars, much less fuss this way and they taste just as good.

Shortbreads which are my absolute fav with a lovely cup of tea or hot chocolate.

So baking will continue over the next few weeks and I will be doing more projects. I hope to have most things completed in a couple of weeks. Then I can sit back and relax.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


Please excuse the blurry photos. At times my one camera really acts up. The better camera needs to have its battery charged.


  1. Well done Jackie, lovely homemade items. The chocolate and biscuits look yum.

  2. Your tree looks lovely and that baking looks so tasty. I couldn't make any Xmas masks as my sewing machine isn't working so I ordered some re-useable ones on line last night. Can't wait for them to arrive.

  3. The tree looks wonderful, very pretty. So nice to see your project finishes, you have been busy. The baking all looks so tasty, yummy.

  4. Your house looks very festive, the sweater is amazing and the baking yummy.

  5. Yum, the baking! I've started too and it all tastes good, but the peanut butter bars you've made look particularly delicious. I haven't done anything chocolate yet.

    The tree is lovely! Hope the cat behaves itself.

    Take care, stay well!

  6. Well done Jackie all very Christmassy, we're only just starting to decorate.

  7. Love you tree. I love red and silver and red and white lights are my favorite. You goodies make me hungry. Can you post the recipe for the coconut balls?

  8. Everything looks wonderfully festive x
