Holiday decorations

 

Fewer decorations than usual, and reminders of my friends Gail who decorated the tree with a sewing theme and Marge who made the wonderful glass block that lights up the room.
The glass trees were finds at a flea market . I added embellishments to the birdhouse with snowmen and snowflakes.
The tree wallhanging I had made previously with Artist Trading cards that I exchanged in swaps on the internet.I had a green UFO with couched yarns, cords and threads that was used as background and added a doily for the tree skirt.

Petroleum Museum & Chaparral Gallery


 

 
 
 
The Petroleum Museum in Midland Texas gave an overview of how oil is discovered, drilled and produced.
The Chaparral Gallery inside the museum had many Jim Hall and Hap Sharp Racing team cars and was of the highlights..The cars were so impressive and the drive to Midland was well worth the time.
