T Stands For Tuesday

Hi Everyone! Debbie is busy cleaning and decking the halls and walls for Christmas, so she has left me, Craftymoose, to post for T Stands for Tuesday today!  A special hello to Elizabeth who hosts this weekly gathering, and a big shout out to Bleubeard!

I'm sure you are all wondering what I look like.....

That's me, on the left, looking pretty handsome, huh?  Debbie said I should mention the snowman (tea) mug on the buffet. It is probably 40+ years old, made for her by her Godmother--a real one, not a fairy godmother--in a ceramics class.  Fast forward 20 years later, Debbie took a ceramics course and made both the candle holders and sea themed planter you see on the buffet.  The little angel bear and girl bear holding a baby moose were gifts from the DD. 

I smell cinnamon tea brewing in the kitchen, so I'm off to grab a cup!  But before I go, I found this pencil drawing (from Dianne's tutorial) on Deb's desk. Don't tell her I posted it!
Thanks for visiting!

Happy T Day Craftymoose...
your secret is safe with me!
Busy time of year and it's looking lovely in your neck of the woods.
I brought a relative of yours home from Ouray Colorado recently altho much much smaller and dusted with glitter. Moose hugs all around

Great to finally meet you CraftyMoose, glad Debbie is sorting out the Christmas Decorations, gives us a chance to have a chat!

Thanks for showing us all the ceramics from the family over the years and the face is really lovely, hoping to see that when it is finished but will keep quiet about seeing it when it is unveiled.

Have a wonderful Christmas CM :-) xxx

I love hand made items, they mean so much more than anything bought....to me.
You know we don't spill secrets on T-days........grin

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Hi Craftymoose. You truly ARE a handsome fellow. Bleubeard here, because Elizabeth is entertaining Kathy, who surprised her with a visit this morning. She is off having a fun shopping day, while I get to enjoy your ceramic beauties, including the vintage mug.

Thanks for hosting today, while Debbie is busy. Elizabeth thanks you, too. Dianne did a wonderful job with her tutorial, because Debbie's lovely drawing makes me smile. Two paws up for her drawing. Thanks for sharing with us for T this Tuesday, Craftymoose. Hope to see you around more often. Tell Debbie she can't hide you anymore (grin).

I see you had lots of snow, a beautiful mountain view through the window.
Hope Craftymoose behaves himself- you never can trust a fella with plaid trousers and suspenders, lol. He looks to have a charming personality!
It's lovely to see your keepsakes mixed in with your own creations. Lots of memories.
