Ok, so after a much fun (disfun
ctional) christmas dinner with the family... getting home at 1am, I needed a little pick-me-up...
I opened one, very cute, very noisey box!
Dh guessed by shaking it that it had jelly beans in the big box and earrings in the smaller...
He was very wrong in the big box, don't know how he thought that at all.. Sometimes men do really miss the whole kaboodle huh?
Kitters inspecting the box
Then playing with the ribbon!
Very very pretty necklace and earrings made by Jan.
If I snooped correctly, I am going to think they are created pearls hand dyed a very rich green.
Though with hubby wearing a blue shirt in bad light I had a hard time seeing if they were green or blue, but when I had it on, I could see much more green!
How close am I on that one Jan?
Here is another shot that sort of (not so good still) shows you the coloring... I might need to actually bust out my macro lens and get a super close up to do it any justice!
And I couldn't let poor Kitters go without any fun too. (besides the paper and ribbon)
And she opened her jingly gift.
Here she is with her loot. Standing on the paper again to make sure it doesn't get away!
Grabbing one to play with!
She got: A purple mouse filled with catnip (she loves
those ones, had one and killed it!), a big pink mouse, a midsize pink mouse, a stringy ropey pink thing that is a huge hit, and about five balls, a sparkly pom pom, a couple with jingles, & a few other kinds. She's been playing with them all already, (like she wouldn't)
So... I still have more to open but I will open one each night! This is actually really fun to do like that... Prolongs the fun....
AND THE STRESS ON YOU GUYS!
Thanks again Jan, they are stunning and beautiful and DH said he could tell as I opened it how much I liked it and how cool I thought it was just from the look on my face! That's neat to know that I am expressive without words!
Other than..... the look
