Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays Everyone, glad that you have a bit of time to visit. It is such a busy time of year - for me it is a LOVE/hate time. So much to do and it seems that the time just gets away from you!!!
Thought I would share some of my Holiday decorations - we only put up part of what we have, since it will be a quiet Christmas and what with getting sick - energy level was a bit down. All is done here, just need to finish some wrapping and maybe try to get the cards done!!
Below is an angel made from an old Hymnal and beside it is a lovely card that is stitched from a very dear friend. I have been fortunate to be a recipient of these cards for several years - I treasure them.
Our tree top Angel, which will go on the tree after our son comes. We wait to decorate the tree when he comes home - a family tradition.I love to do little vignettes so here is a bit of everything. If you look close there is the tiniest of Manger scenes in the front. Also, a lovely Hardanger towel, a frog as a candy cane holder and a lovely 3 dimensional tree card.
Here is a cute little gourd painted Santa.
And an other gourd Santa - this one is just beautifully done.
This is the front entry way, we usually have way more holiday stuffed animals that go all the way up the stairs and around the tree.
This is the main tree in the livingroom - it looks like it is leaning, but I think it is how I took the picture. There are a few ornaments on the tree the rest will be put on this week when DS comes home.
Have you all seen this Whitman's tin?? I think it is just darling. I usually like the 'sampler' ones but I really like this one.
A little gift from Becky - thank you so much!!
view from the side - sorry it is blurry.
This is from another dear friend - Margaret. She makes the most wonderful bags and goodies, again I feel so lucky to have such dear and wonderful friends. Thank you Margaret.
Well, best get off the computer for now - need to take the cats to the Vets!!! this should be fun!!!LOL
Enjoy the Season everyone and thanks for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to visit.
