Holiday Greetings! UPDATED

Hey All! Sorry for the long silence. I was caught up in the vortex of the mad Christmas rush & the endless family dinners & lunches. The dust has not settled yet as I've still got one more family gathering to attend tonite. However, you can check my other blog to see what I've been up to.

If you're wondering, yes, I do have the Christmas tree & the festive-appropriate decors all set up & about. I just thought that since all Christmas trees & decors look more or less alike in every house, I wouldn't need to post the pictures here.

However, this little bugger is different. When I first got it as a present, I thought that it was a crib with baby Jesus & the Three Wise Men.

But when I looked at it more closely, I realised that I was wrong. The Three Wise Men were replaced by the three watercolour tubes, & baby Jesus was replaced by three wires modelled to look like paint brushes!

This is really twisted man!

But of course this wasn't supposed to be a crib. It's actually a Christmas gift from a fellow friend who spent 12 hours labouring on this piece of artwork, sticking together all kinds of recycled wooden utensils known to man - clothes pegs, chopstick, toothpicks & ice-cream sticks.

And just when you think that it's a little sissy piece of work for girls, there's more. When you slam in 2 AA batteries at the back, it'll light up! Now, that's real POWER man.

I just hope that the recycled materials were not really USED. I hope that he didn't use those toothpicks before. And I also hope that nobody stuck those ice-cream sticks up somewhere before.

Holding that thought, I would like to wish all readers a very Merry Christmas & hope that you will have a great holiday before the year is over!
