I have all my packages to be mailed ready to go. You have no idea how good that feels. I'm starting to feel like Christmas really is coming and I might be ready, somewhat for it!
I finished my ornaments and decorating projects. Mr. Hive helped me put the grommets in the vintage table cloth stars. I'm really happy with how they turned out.
The kids helped decorate the tree. It was fun even though the youngest of the kids are all teenagers now and that innocent wanderlust of Christmas is faded.
I used my sweet angel given to me by Terri last year for the top and the ornaments made by Eileen. It makes me smile to see them on my tree.
Of course I have my ornaments I made from last year sitting front and center on the tree as well.
And my new yo yo garland drapes across the tree. It isn't a huge tree but the price was kind of big for a fresh tree. At least I thought so.
My daughter Jamie says there are too many ornaments. I don't think so. Can there ever be too many ornaments?
I don't have tons of decorations around the house. Too much seasonal stuff makes me uncomfortable. But a touch is nice. I have the little trees I made from last year on the entry sideboard. I added 3 tiny figurines after seeing Belinda's little arrangement of trees on her blog. Love it.
Of course my quilt is front and center in my entryway above the sideboard. I love this tree. So many good memories.
My slight touch of a vintage Christmas is here with my small collection of vintage Christmas balls. I think they are pretty in this vintagey glass bowl from my mother-in-law. AndAnd to top off the weekend we had Allison on Saturday. She's so fun. Here the kids staged her "riding" the dog. She's a sweet doll to play with sometimes. I'm not sure who to feel more sorry for, Shadow or Allison? ha
