And A Happy New Year

Here are some images from Christmas week, celebrating Christmas eve, Christmas and
the day after. Saying good-bye to 2012. This is a shot of my friend Cristina's
chandelier in her home on Christmas eve. Cristina is my daughter's sister-in-law.
 I wish you all love and happiness in 2013. This is a shot of my
grand-daughter's necklace.

 Handmade bracelet from a handsome and charming Italian
gentleman, Gianni, Cristina's father.

My grand-daughter's new animal print I-phone cover.

 Stylish shoes seen on Christmas eve on my daughter.

  Crowns inside candle holders. I hope to post these later with candles in them.
These were a gift to my daughter.

Wrought iron front entrance on Christmas day.
Yours truly getting excited about the food on Christmas day.
 My grand-daughter is taking the picture. I'm talking to her
 while being very distracted by the food. As you can see
over time I've been very distracted by food. I'm
probably telling her not to take my picture.
I'm looking very grandmotherly here.
I'm wearing a Johnny Was scarf and top with an Orvis
vest. Earrings are handmade from vintage faux gems from
the forties and I'm wearing Gianni's bracelet.
 The day after Christmas lunch (after shopping) in the marina in Long Beach.
Photo taken through the window of the restaurant.
This bring out the rebel in you?

 Good food in a relaxed atmosphere with a fantastic view.

Chic and sweet New Year my dear, long-time, beloved blog friend!
How sweet to see your pic... the first one for me! You look just as sweet as I imagined you. Not grandmotherly at all, not in the bad stuffy sense of it. A radiant lady, full of life;)

May our friendship keep on growing...
