Hi there! How is your festive month going along? We're enjoying the heck out of it. :-) At our DAR meeting we had another White Elephant sale to raise money for a scholarship we award each year. I bought this neat handmade candelabra for $3!
I put my polka dotted candles in it and I think it looks neat.
I'm so curious about it's past.. I think the maker is the signature below and the name above is one of it's owners over time. Dayle, Kristi and I think the Delma painted it red, as why would it be stained and varnished on the bottom if it was to be painted by it's maker? And we also think he would have done a tidier job of painting it.. what do you think?
Mr. Emrick.. I wonder what your first name was? But your handiwork is in good hands now being used in a century old farmhouse by a busy and happy little family.
Our Christmas cactus is growing nicely, but it is NOT covered with blooms. I can only surmise that it is putting it's energy into it's root growth and not into flowers. ::shrug::
This is the bay window behind our easy chairs.. we get lots of natural light from it which I love. We've had to lower the bamboo shades this week as it's been sunny and bright.
Meeka's dad, our son Shawn, is at work now at Nabisco for the 3rd week... so his dog has been coming to Dayle and I for attention. :-) My nickname for her is "Big Fluffy".
I came across this amazing image on Facebook, it's Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood.. taken by a drone with a camera attached to it. Isn't it neat?
I'm over my illness and will be heading to the pool for the first time in 3 weeks today. It's so cold outside that it takes quite a bit of fortitude to make myself go.. but I will do it.. I will. I will. I hope you have a wonderful week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
