Where has Jiminy been?........

Hi everyone!! I've been a long time posting because I've been in India! My hubby did his medical training in the Indian army at the Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) in Pune, and this year they celebrated the 50th year of the college. One of my hubby's classmates is now the Dean of the college so it made the celebrations extra special. It was wonderful for him to catch up with all his classmates and meet the wives too.

We stayed in the Taj Blue Diamond hotel in Pune and to my surprise it was bedecked in Christmas decorations including this splendid tree. I had almost forgotten how near to Christmas it was until I saw the tree!

We went out every evening for dinner to the Officer's Mess and of course we had to dress up. This is us (hubby and I are at the end on the right) in the hotel lobby just before leaving for dinner.
I couldn't finish this post without leaving you with something crafty. I made some pretty little boxes to give as gifts to friends. The boxes were cut from double-sided heavyweight paper. The apertures were covered with acetate, then the boxes were filled with four rose-scented tea light candles. I added a sheer bow, paper rose, die cut leaf and a stamped tag.
