I always catches me unaware and this year and having been overseas so close to Xmas I find here it is, ready or not!
Yesterday was 'Gingerbread House' day. Not terribly successful I have to say. Firstly Monique dropper her ginger bread lady and knocked her head off, disaster.
Then Oma dropped part of the roof which Monique thought very funny. So this year the house only has half of the roof that we will fill with biscuits. The chimney also had to be eaten straight away as it couldn't be put on the roof.
Getting ready to go out I dropped one ear ring. I heard it fall but do you think I can find it? it has to be there somewhere. I had to find another pair of ear rings. They are all in the box but trying to find a pair or the ones I would like was driving me mad. I made a quick decision to make an ear ring holder for the hook type ones. (The others can stay in the box.)
I used a cheap photo frame, removing the glass, covering the cardboard backing with gold paper and inserting a piece of hook rug mesh. (The type you latchet the wool onto, a sort of large mesh.
Then I dug out all those ear rings, put them into pairs and hung them on the mesh.
Heavens, I had no idea I had so many odd ear rings!
