mints!

I hope everyone is recovering from the Christmas/Hanukah blitz and getting ready for New Year’s! My Christmas week was busy, but really good. Actual knitting content is at the end, in case you want to scroll down . . . I promise.

xmas trees!

My mom started collecting these glass Christmas trees when we lived in Taiwan; they were supercheap and pretty. When we got back to the states, we were surprised to discover that they sell here for a great deal more money. Needless to say, Mom’s collection didn’t grow after that. Still, she has dozens, and puts them out every year on their glass dining room table. It wouldn’t be Christmas without them.

More holiday decorations in my new city! My dear friend Num Num said that she loves seeing her city anew through my eyes. I hope you enjoy it, too. Another friend used a photo of these lights as his Christmas card from last year; I had to do it for myself, too. Consider this my holiday card to all of you: I couldn’t get it together to mail any out for real this year.
