2008-12-24 [Tyrana]: That is gorgeous. How does it work? Do you live in a coastal area, or do lots of people have ships in their yards? Does one find a ship every year, or have like, a "christmas ship" that they keep in with the decorations?

2008-12-24 [CrazySierzant]: hell yeah it does! ^^ especially it has my fave shades of blue there x) in my opinion the winner is known already :) or maybe... nah I'll better save it for myself. :P Mitsuki's 'magic lights' , Rebulous' 'birds are my friend', and Tyrana's 'peeking around the wiseman' got very to my liking :]. Really fantastic pics ! great job, people! *laud applause*
P.S. Jitteeeeeerrr.... could you shoot a pic of that large one for meeeeee ? 8D

2008-12-24 [Jitter]: I do live and lived in a coastal city but nowadays the ships are usually made of lights in town squares like this one^ It seems people are trying to ressurect this custom ^^ In islands they decorate the fleets etc but in houses they usually have miniature ships like this: I did put up a ship as well this year :) It's a frigate :3 I'll try to snap a pic when I'm back home.

I do hope I'll manage to be downtown at a time I can catch the big one alight. I only have 3 days, then I'll be back home :/
This is a pic I found of it online: there are people for size comparison too ^^

That's Aristotelous (Aristotelis's) Square, all the big gigs in Thessaloniki happen there :)

2008-12-24 [Tyrana]: That's so cool!!! The lit-up ones are beautiful!

2008-12-24 [Jitter]: I borrowed my brother's camera. He has a nifty 9mp one. Mine died and he gave me his old one but I haven't been able to make it work so far. I think I should blame the batteries >_> Anyway, I took a lot of great pictures today but I think the blue ship one is by far the best ^_^

If you google image "Christmas ship" you get lots of nifty pics :)

2008-12-26 [Artsieladie]: Very good, [Heather Thomason]! Thanks! One year I had a skinny tree, too. ;) [Tyrana], it's nice to see a photo depicting the true meaning of Christmas. I put up a nativity scene every year as part of my Christmas decorations. :) [Jitter], I have to agree with others. That ship is awesome! O..O :)

2008-12-27 [Heather Thomason]: thank you

2008-12-27 [CrazySierzant]: I've also thought of something... what do you think ? :)

2008-12-28 [Tyrana]: [Artsieladie]: Thank you!
[CrazySierzant]: Ooooh, pretty!! ^_^

2008-12-28 [CrazySierzant]: <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-12-28 [*Phoenix*]: oh geeez....look like I need a better picture. I will upload the one I got but so many are so much better....O.o

2008-12-28 [Jitter]: [CrazySierzant] O_O pretty... shiny... must... touch..!

2008-12-28 [Artsieladie]: Very pretty, [CrazySierzant]! I like candles. They can really enhance an atmosphere, whether it be for Christmas, and/or romantically. :) You're welcome, [Tyrana]. :) [*Phoenix*], you know artists are their own toughest critics. It may not be as bad as you think. *thinks and scratches chin* Hmm... let me see...Who was it that told me they just received a scanner for Christmas? Hmmm.... *giggles*

[Hedda], that's similar to a scene I like to set up every year. Nice! However, I was wondering if "Santa Slop" was the correct term/title. So I Googled "Tomtebacke" and this was the first that came up:

The "tomte-backe" (Mini-Santas/gnomes slope). <img300*0:stuff/z/1. [Hedda] drinking Christmas coffee..." 


I'm thinking then that you mean "Santa Slope", instead? <img:stuff/sa-gif.gif><img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2008-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: Hedda love yours! soooooo cute!

2008-12-28 [Hedda]: I'll tell mother! <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-12-28 [Rice]: I really like yours Moira!

2008-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: thx u.... its abit different than everyone else... very pagan themed

2008-12-28 [moira hawthorne]: I love yours [Rice] - Cold Tinsel.

2008-12-29 [Artsieladie]: Ooh, [nehirwen]! Wubs Christmas plushies! *cuddles them* :D

2008-12-29 [nehirwen]: ^_^ Thankies. My mom made the big one, and it's wearing something I used to wear as a baby. xD

2008-12-29 [Rice]: Thank you kindly Moira.
