It's the most wonderful time of the year! House explosion!
Now that gifts have been given I'm free to expose the chaos and fun of yuletide crafting.
In order they are: as-yet-not-ironed tweed aviator hat with bear ears. A tobacco pouch for papa's Christmas pipe tobacco (the boys tell me I've made quite a few of these over the years. What?) Christmas gnomes for Christmas stockings.
Hugh's gnome is also in league with the tooth fairy, since we've discovered that the traditional under-the-pillow method doesn't work. He left a message, carefully printed and adorably misspelled: Tooth Fairy where are you? My tooth has been under my pillow for weeks. I need some money.
(Aw shucks, tooth fairy, you're breaking my heart!)
So Hugh's gnome took the precious little tooth under his care, and Hugh has been well compensated for his patience.
