The tree is up and it is starting to look a bit like Christmas!
For some reason the tree ended up becoming a two day event! We put it up Monday night - put on the lights and then finished the rest on Tuesday. But it is finally ready for the holiday season and it is a very lovely tree. I think Jim said it was a Noble Fir - but I could be wrong.
A few of my Christmas decorations that now adorn the fireplace.
Both the Santa and the Angel were made by my friend Maureen and given to me as gifts on different Christmas seasons. I love them both! If it wasn't for Maureen I wouldn't have any Christmas quilty things at all. She has also given me a couple of Christmas placemats and a Christmas table runner.
This was made for me by Jessica when she was about 11. Still very special and I bring it out every year. I probably showed these all last year :))
And of course, Jenny has offered her services to Santa to help with the sled trip on Christmas Eve!!
Although she doesn't look all that enthusiastic does she? I think she kept the antlers on for about 17 seconds!!!
Well - I am off to wrap some gifts. I still haven't received my Secret Santa gift in the mail. I think Canada Post is the slowest in the world -- that is my observation!!
