Feeling Christmas-y

December 15, 2011

Ben Blair sent me a link to this video. It wowed me and made me feel Christmas-y all at the same time. I hope it will do the same for you!

Growing up, my family always used goblets for Sunday dinner and l loved running a wet finger around the rim to get that sound. Have you ever made your glass sing?

P.S. — The holly wreath I made is also making me feel Christmas-y. It’s so pretty! But I confess, I found working with the holly to be very difficult — I’m not sure I would ever brave another holly wreath again. : )

Love the video! It wouldn’t be Christmas without the Nutcracker. What a unique and beautiful rendition.

Holly is definitely not for the faint-of-heart.

Your wreath is beautiful. How funny about the goblets. My husbands family did the same thing with the wet ring around the goblets. I was so impressed with this when I was dating him. Thanks for the memory. Merry Christmas!

I remember feeling so proud — and sort of shocked — the first time I got a sound out of the glass.

Talented & creative folks…don’t you wonder how they got started? I mean, was it one glass, then, let’s try another until they had an entire symphony of sound? Love it!

No way! How cool was that? It’s a good reminder to let the kids play at the dinner table–who knows what might come of it. ;-) Thanks for the Christmas cheer.

I love your holly wreath. My father-in-law is visiting tomorrow from Virginia and I’m hoping his pockets will be filled with holly for us!

That is incredible! My mom and I just saw the Joffrey Ballet do Nutcracker in Chicago last week. It was incredible.

That is so amazing! Ella is in the Nutcracker again this year, I can’t wait to show this to her! Do you think kids can take glass lessons? :)

P.S. I imagine that holly is painful, but is sure is beautiful. I LOVE that wreath I am a big fan and use holly garland on our mantle, but it’s fake!
