Isn´t this lovely house that Regina made for just perfect? Acrylic paint with a wax finish. Regina is a trooper when it comes to blogging, every day there is a new inspiring post! We also did an ornament-swap, and this funky tree will ornate my Christmas tree next year!
A little mid-Christmas holiday golden girl for you.
I hope your days of Christmas are peaceful and blessed with smiles and laughter. This is one of the Christmas ornaments I made for the swap.

This year, we have a twist on the swap, instead of making Christmas ornaments, we´ve each made an original piece of art or handicraft, of one kind or the other. The ever creative Michelle Allen painted [...]
My youngest sister and her boyfriend wanted Christmas-curtains for their kitchen a few years ago. That started the production of a whole collection of personalized gifts for them. Since they are each others´ chosen family, that became the name of this little collection. It´s indeed a very small collection, as they are the only ones [...]
The whole extended family had a trip to a neighboring island today, to get our Christmas-trees. My brother-in-law has a fairly large farm where we all can pick our own trees. What a great present!
