Yesterday we spent some fun, family time at the Steeler game.
The kids had bought us tickets for our Christmas present
and they all went along also.
Missing one SIL, a bit of a overlap in plans.
Number 20 on my
30 days of projects?
The tree is up,
the house is semi-decorated.
I am not a primitive decorater.
Love to see it, have some areas that are prim,
I just love glitter!
The colored lights on the tree,
were not part of the plan.
You can read about that
Emptied this vase at the church the other day
decided to bring it home for the holiday.
Those crochet covered balls have been on my trees
for thirty some years.
And this tree on the landing.
A tree by the grandchildren's play area in the living room.
And this nightmare in progress.
This was a pre-lit tree
that stays up all year.
It seemed a little dusty and the lights no longer worked.
I am in the process of taking the lights off.
What a mess that is?
Who wraps these things?
How much does that job pay?
I have one more tree, don't know where that pic went.
And this is the centerpiece on the table.
Several years ago,
a friend of mine came to visit
and brought me these hand-blown glass ornaments.
I carefully used them on my tree,
high up so as not to get broke by little fingers.
This year they are on the table
in this bowl.
I like them here!
The birds were JWS's grandmothers.
an antique store find.
Three more painting orders
and I am done,
Hopefully, way earlier than last year!
Off to fire up the paintbrushes!
