Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was quiet, but just right. I did get together with the entire mob of my family on Sunday for the occasion of my dad's 91st birthday. Gosh, can you imagine? He is such a wonderful man, and I am so grateful that he has lived a full and relatively healthy life. Certainly a life full of love.
My only accomplishment was that on Friday and Saturday we got the house decorated. My gosh, I don't know any man who loves Christmas as much as my husband does. He goes all out with the decorating, and won't even hear of me not putting something out. "But Sweetie, I am here in the house all by myself all week long. Do we REALLY need to put up two trees?" I shouldn't even bother to ask. Of course we need two trees.
This is the library, where I put up a Santa collection. Eva helped me on Saturday, and we got all the little guys up. I also have a snow man collection. I had to clear the bookshelves so I could fit these little fellows in. Can you tell I love those little battery pack mini light sets?
This is the dining room. Honestly, the room is kind of small and if we put in one more decoration, I doubt we could take a meal in there.
The mantel. Isn't it cool how the tree is reflected in the tv screen? I love that.
I have to say I am loving my Paganini table topper. Pattern by Miss Rosie Quilt Co. I really like the grey in the Sweetwater Holly's Tree Farm fabric collection, as the mercury glass trees and candle holders play well with it.
That is all for now my friends. I hope you are well and enjoyed your holiday. I ventured out on Sunday after Thanksgiving to check out the malls and it was insane. I am determined to do the rest of my shopping online. Let UPS do the driving and I will stay home and bake cookies with my grand daughter!
Still sewing bindings. Thank goodness there is a ton of good tv to watch right now while I do it! Gilmore Girls, Good Behavior, Poldark, Code Black....I am being entertained while I work.
