Christmas Mosaics

Hello everyone,
  I hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend.We had a little birthday party for my Mom on Friday,and Andrew and I went to a Christmas Carol concert in the evening.  On Saturday I enjoyed a lovely Christmas lunch at a local restaurant with my girls  and our daughter and family came for lunch on Sunday so the weekend zipped by! We are still have very mild weather (for Canada), it is 10 degrees Celsuis so needless to say not a speck of snow. I hope we get some soon as it does not look like Christmas here without snow.

 I have made a few mosaics from little Christmas touches around our home.
 The picture above is a Trisha Romance card that I framed. I love her work!
 The mosaic above is from last year.

 I am still doing little Christmas touches around the house- I know I am slow this year! We are getting our tree tomorrow so it will go up on Wednesday hopefully.

 I am joining in with Cielo at The House in the Roses for Show off your Cottage Monday and also joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday .

Thank you for visiting me,

Slow? Oh Carolyn you are MILES (or is that kilometers?) ahead of me!

Your photographs are stunning -- I enlarged each one twice to get all the beautiful details. Thanks!!!

Wonderful mosaics/photos! I especially love the close-ups of the red ornament and ... is that Father Christmas? Anyway, it's all very pretty! Bess

Your mosaics/photos are just beautiful. Are you finished decorating yet? I suppose there is always some "tweaking" to do. Have a good week!

Dearest Carolyn,

You seem to have had a lovely weekend with all your loved ones. That's what this season is all about; memories. We celebrate one 2,000 year old memory and others we create by having special things with loved ones that turn into cherished memories over time.
Enjoy your Christmas decorating and there is no rush; this is all about PEACE.

Lots of love,

Mariette's Back to Basics

Dearest Carolyn,
Your mosaics are so pretty. I would love to send the snow storm that is coming on Wed. with 5 to 10 cm. of snow your way. Do you usually have snow for Christmas and does it last through Feb or March? Vancouver gets bits of snow most years that only lasts for a couple of days at most. That is why I love living in Winnipeg, I love the Winters here.
Hugs, Cindy

Beautiful mosaics! I love your collection of Santas, especially.


Carolyn said...

Hi Podso,
No, I am not done decorating yet but soon!

Hi Cindy,
It is usually much colder here then it is this Dec.(+10 C for part couple of days) and usually we have snow by now that stays until late March or so-strange!
Thank you all for your kind words.

I love all the old world looking pieces...Your angels are just lovely and the Santa is truly charming.

Thank you for always providing us with such delish eye candy.

Blessings Kelsie

Oh it is always so lovely to visit here, Carolyn! Your Chrisitmas touches are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing at MM, and have a wonderful christmas with family and friends!

Your weekend sounds lovely. And, Christmas in your home is like a magical land.

I hope you get the snow you are dreaming of in time for Christmas. It is very cold here. Of course, we don't have the same cold weather you do.

What a charming post, Carolyn! Love the Trisha Romance card framed! Have fun decorating your tree. A lovely post as usual! Have a nice day.

Christmas Blessings,

Carolyn, your pictures and decorating are always so lovely. I really enjoy 'touring' your home this way. You mentioned the weather. It was 15 here yesterday with all that rain and the southerly wind it felt like spring. However, there are a lot of flooded roads and basements as a result of over 100 mm. of rain in some areas! I do hope we have a white Christmas too! Blessings!
