Santa's Helper....

   Teddy Bear, one of Santa's older elves, has been working in the shop. making this cabinet.
  The shop's a total mess. Here's the base, with the doors lying on top.
  The top doors will have chicken wire and the bottom doors are paneled.  This is for Liz's home and will not be a Christmas gift. As this is the first year in many that we did not make gifts for everyone. Ted's had a busy year, with his part time job.  He'll be a month cleaning the shop. :):)
   So I just walk around trying to get some pretty shots of the sun or moon.
  Yesterday ended very golden in the west.  I liked the outline of the neighbor's barn against the yellows in the horizon.
  In the east, it's the moon, that will be full on Christmas night. It's called the "long night moon" I am hoping for clear skies on Christmas...but the weather reports seem to change.
  Hope everyone has a great day today.  Let's remember our friends who are in need of good wishes and prayers. Thank you. XO

  2. Dear Susie
    I am wondering if you are feeling better...that ole arthritis can be a painful thing...I don't have it anywhere but one finger and a shoulder. Not too bad, tho.
    That cabinet looks sooo cute with chicken wire...Mr. Sweet and a grandgirl are working on a coffee table for her...I have MY camera charging, too so will get some photos today.
    Love and best wishes for you and all you love. xoxo

    2. Thank you sweet friend. I think you are in the path of some of the harder storms moving through. With us being further north it is just the threat of severe storms. Just lots of rain so far. Merry Christmas.

  8. That cabinet is looking great! That's one thing my hubby isn't comfortable with is woodworking. Give him something electrical or electronic and he's a wiz! We'e had so many clouds lately seeing the moon is hit or miss! I hope to see it Christmas night! Thank you for following me and for your supportive comments! Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!

    1. JoAnn, I think Liz will love this cabinet for many reasons. I am hoping to see that moon also. Gee, I hope you aren't getting too much rain... I always worry about too much at once. I saw some landslides in Washington...so scary. Blessings to you and yours for a merry Christmas and a great new year. xoxo,Susie
