    No Christmas in my house this year: Just my husband and myself. No tree, no lights, no decoration. And most of all, no Christmas music! I cannot stand the thought of it in an empty house.
    Thanks to the marvelous handling of some really smart and foresighted individuals, we will have a Christmas to remember! I hate to say but I the phrase "I could have told you so" could have been used almost daily here. But enough, I will find another way to vent my frustration.
    Here is how I have been using my free time: Old picture frames, left over fabric, some hooks....

    Here is a selection of my necklaces: wood, Bakelite, Lucite, glass, amber, pressed amber, unknown plastic, celluloid.....

    The good thing is that I can have a good look at them and easily decide which ones to wear.

    I picked this location because it is located in a dark corner of my house without any direct sunlight.
    Thanks for looking:)

      Looking very nice with all the colors sorted . Yes this covid has us finding work to do :-)

      My favorite is pic3, esp. the yellow 'cheese cube' necklace... :-) :-) :-)

      I wish I could say I was only "bored" by the covid mess, and 2020 in general...
      <groan><sigh> ...but we all's gotta just keep on keeping on despite it, somehow...?

      Many thanks, Manikin. I have done pretty much everything I wanted to do. Now, I have only odd jobs left, like painting the living room. I hope that Covid wont last that long. I would rather spend the money and hire someone.

      AnythingObscure, maybe boredom was not the right word to use. Some days it's more frustration. I spend most of my days alone with my husband in a big house in the Canadian winter. It sounds fine but there is so much I miss.

      Very clever idea!
      I understand your frustration, but with the temperatures in the low 70’s here at least we can get out and about ( walking hiking, not in stores as California has had yet another shut down)
      I was even thinking of taking up crocheting again, how sad is that? Ho Hum...

      What a great idea for your collection! Delicious eye candy! I haven't been bored here either, hanging on to my job which I came back to in September and now under governor strongly suggested shutdowns. But, so far the retail stores are open for holiday 20%. I'm not doing Christmas either Gudrun. I have 8 days of vacation left and I can't GO ANYWHERE. I guess, all the more reason to decorate for Christmas LOL. PS, don't feel sorry for me. My company realizes online shopping is important. They are providing me a laptop (loan) and an IPhone (mine to keep) for new selling policies in 2021. Fingers crossed.

      FRUSTRATION is likely a better word for me too. In my case I still have (what's left of) my job, which I usually perform while being well 'social distanced'. (pipe organ work is kinda a 'team sport' sometimes, but I usually only need one more person to help, if I'm not working alone, who is seated well away from me)

      No 'stay at home' mandates here, nor even a 'mask' mandate <groan> so I also still havta maintain trips to Kroger's/etc. Thankfully, like Ms.CrystalShip, our climate remains hospitable for the evening dog walks...?

      Freiheit I really like your idea of hanging your necklaces like that. Looks very nice!
