This weeks Photo Challenge was to photograph something Festive.
Keeping in the spirit, I got glitter in my eye yesterday at a party and now it is scratched and blurry and I have a homemade eye patch on to try and settle it.
To me Festive conjours up images of colourful things. This is a gift I am about to wrap. Some colourful packs of decorations and some tea towels.
And of course food. Food is what almost every festive occasion is centered around. I made these yesterday for my Breast Cancer fundraising group (the Desperate for a Cure Housewives) Christmas party. We all pick a secret Santa name, they buy a toy that has some connection to that person and then we write a story, poem or song about that person. All toys then go to a woman's shelter. The person that got me actually wrote and sang a song about me.......watch for it on I tunes.
I got my name mixed up and bought for the wrong person, but it was all for the cause.
I am not a traditional Festive Christmas person.....I don't have many decorations. I did find this vintage (style) garden of Father Christmases when I was in Chicago (http://www.poshchicago.com/) and hung them from the mantle to prove that I do have a Christmas Spirit.
Next week, I know you will all be busy. I thought we could skip the challenge until the new year.
I will post the challenge closer to the time.
