I live in ancient Russian town Yelets which has rich history. One of local craft is making of laces. It's sharp fine work which takes part a lot of time and strength. Unfortunately I cannot do it but I know some lace makers which did their masterpieces. I present here blouse, collars and small items most of it was made by my aunt grandmother Popova Anna Nikolaevna.

Today is orthodox Xmas. Russians have own traditions of celebrating it. For example, night before Christmas is time of magic, foretells and wonders.
"Promised, masked, come to me for supper" - girl says near bed is putting plate to bedside-table. She hopes to see her future groom in night-dream :-)
This village is situated 35 km from my town. It has nice park with Xmas illumination. I like to go there looking and making photos of such beauty. You could see pics from there at this blog below. I demonstrate new photos I made yesterday in this post. I think you'll enjoy it as me :-)
Happy holidays to all. I wish you success, health and great love!
Sorry I didn't congratulate you by Christmas. It was because there is Xmas 7 of January in Russia. And New Year we celebrate twice - 1 and 14 of January. That's strange traditions.
This is my Xmas tree. 2011 is year of Rabbit (or Hare, or Cat) by Chinese horoscope.
