The Christmas card that would have been and my beautiful Christmas bowl!

Another card possibility that I'm not going to have time to get printed or in the mail. Anyone who I normally send a card to can look at this and know that Merry Christmas and a Happy 2010 Wish is sent your way. This will be the first Christmas in all our years of marriage that I haven't sent cards. I may have to do a New Year Card instead. This is done by cutting the image into black paper and gluing it to yellow and a little messing around with my iphoto program.

I took this fruit salad to a breakfast that one of my husband's coworkers hosted this morning. The bowl is one that my daughter and her 3 girls made for me last year. If you were reading my post then, you may remember it. The girls' hand prints and fingerprints make the holly design on the outside. My daughter painted the plaid on the inside. I love it and keep it out all year.

It received lots of OOOs and Ahhhs this morning!

My mother always had a Christmas knick-knack, bow, ornament--something, that she would leave out all year. She said that it reminded her that the Christmas feeling should be all year and not just at the holiday. So--you have your lovely bowl out all year--perfect!

This is an awesome creation Julia. You are so talented.

I love that bowl, I am 2 years later still waiting for my kid-lings creations in school made into table rests ... one day she'll get them to us. :(

Merry Christmas ~

I love the bowl, Julia. It is so charming and even more so because your daughter and her children made it. I would keep it out all year, too!

As long as your friends know you love them, it doesn't matter.
