Do you ever save old Advent Calendars? I do when they are as pretty as this one from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is the Beaux Arts facade designed by Richard Hunt that faces Fifth Avenue. There is always a huge tree in the lobby at Christmas time.
I made the Santa many years ago when my class of developmentally delayed students wanted to make Santa lamps. These were fairly easy to make using a soda bottle as a form, and were a great hit! The bulb in Santa's hat is too bright to photograph when lit. Little bulbs can focus way too much light sometimes!
I can't seem to skip below the photo today. Such are the vagaries of Blogspot! I'll try moving the photo later. We'll see, grasshopper.......we'll see.....
I spent the week end doing the long overdue chore of winterizing my studio. It's not difficult, but does entail a lot of moving of stuff!
I understand that a large storm is headed our way. We are supposed to get a lot of rain, which is still needed. Pond levels are holding even since we started getting more rain but have not raised very much.
Good wishes for all to stay cozy and warm. Is it may imagination or has it gotten cold much earlier this year?
As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*
