Time does not wait

 Kitty Justice, Santa and LPC.  Our Christmas always begins with my best friends visit from GA. 
 LPC has always been a big part of Puppy's Christmas. When he was younger he thought Santa was a 4 foot 10 inch woman from GA.  
 We had our dinner on Christmas Eve and Mimi was holding court in the living room. 
 MK is Mimi's only grand daughter and she is as smart as she is pretty. 
 MK's brother . father and mother. 
 Prince, Kitty and Puppy who is holding Cricket. Below is Cricket's Mom with Mimi. The four above photos and one below were all taken Christmas Eve.
Maggie on Christmas morning enjoying her new toy from her stocking. 

The last two mornings of the year have begun in the low twenties. Burr. Prince and Puppy split wood yesterday evening and will haul it to the porch today. Nothing better than just sitting by a warm fire when it is cold outside. 
The Kitty Justice is that I cannot believe this is the last day of 2014.

A few up close

 All of these were made in the 70's and early 80's. Mother was an expert seamstress and Dad was a carpenter, so I did these for them. I have one for each family member up to my youngest Nephew. Guess I need to stitch a few more. 

All of the above are ceramic that I painted. I used to do lots of ceramic items which I sold to supplement my income. I hope the ones I sold are hanging on peoples trees this Christmas. 
I would consider them limited additions as I will not be painting any more ornaments. 
The Kitty Justice is Puppy will hang them on his tree in the future and think of Mom.

the tree

Got the tree on Sunday afternoon and it sat outside until Monday late. Immediately put the tree skirt around it . We had a bio hazard ruin all my lights so I waited until Senior day, Wednesday, to go to Ace Hardware and get 5 strings of ceramic lights. You know the big bulbs like we had in the sixties and fifties. Anyway put on 3 strings that afternoon but could not reach the top. Prince put the last 2 strings on for me late yesterday and I spent most of the evening putting on ornaments. Headed to bed with 2 more boxes of ornaments to go. 
The Kitty Justice, I could have left it on the porch and had a Charlie Brown Christmas.

First Christmas Present this year

Christmas season has begun as we have had our Art Venture luncheon and played the Dirty Santa game. Each artist brings an original painting wrapped in Christmas paper or bag and places their gift on a table at the party. Mz Peaches in the black outfit standing up in the left side of the photo is one of the hostess for the month of December. The other hostess is Mz. Bunny (not in the photo). Each artist draws a number (you always hope for a larger numbers because your painting will be less likely to be stolen) Yep, we steal twice and then the gift is retired and cannot be stolen again. Since I was number four and most of the other paintings had been opened, I felt safe. Not so, Mz. Cat sitting beside me had her painting stolen and she had stolen before so she said she was gonna steal again. I teased her and said she was gonna be a bad, bad , bad puddy tat. No sooner had the words gotten out of my mouth than she reached over and stole my painting. In true kitty fashion, I had already picked out a place for Sister's (lady standing behind Mz. Cat) painting therefore I was crushed. Instead of stealing, I unwrapped one that was still on the table and it was Mz Mc watercolor titled "Slipped Right Through". I got her painting last year and really wanted another artist's painting. 
My goal is try to get something from everyone in our group. Did not happen this year. Seems as if I am collecting artwork by Mz. Mc. I could go over to Mz. Cat's house and steal the painting back and replacing it with something similar so she would not notice. Now to figure out how to get away with my plot. The worse was when I got home, Mz. Peaches called and informed me that Sister was resigning from the group. She was the groups online lady ,therefore, they wish for me to do the online work. This made the thievery of my painting by Mz. Cat  even worse since Sister will not be playing our dirty Santa game, next year. That deserves a healthy "CAT FUZZY,"  
The Kitty Justice is I know where Mz. Cat lives. LOL
