A Christmas Gift and A Christmas Card

When Randi came over to take care of her furry brothers and sister while we were out of town, she noticed that the toilet seat in our guest bathroom was cracked. She got an idea for Christmas. She bought us a new wooden toilet seat and had our three granddaughters make some fun art. The girls made butterflies with their hands, signed and dated their work. There was no way I was going to put the girls' art on the toilet, so it will hang in our hall. Jim came up with the idea of taking a family Christmas portrait and putting it under the lid using the seat as a frame:) This is possibly the strangest, most fun Christmas gift we've ever received:) Thank you, Randi. We really like it! Jade (8), Ivory (4), and Lucy (2), Grandma and Grandpa think you're wonderful artists!





I also wanted to share the Christmas card I received from my friend Charlotte Lang, an artist who lives in Mesquite, Nevada. She makes lovely watercolors and also does pottery.

Maybe I will wear it around my neck for a few days before mounting it on the wall.....
