a lot of my Christmas things before moving down here to Fl--
a bit over 2 years ago--
but I still --have decided that I have too much--
for this size apt--the apt in NY was 300sq ft larger than this one--
and I had all kinds of furniture and wood cabins to decorate--
here I don't-- so it has been a challenge this year in the decorating department--
but here is what I did this year--
and this little tree has angels on it--
after Christmas tree that I got last year--
it has red berries and little pinecones on it--
it holds some of my older small ornaments on it--
and that is a paper angel that I made many years ago at a craft convention --
can't believe how well it has held up--lets see she is over 30 yrs old--ouch!!!
I pinned my collection of knitted mittens to it this year--
(I did have them on one of the small trees--but changed my mine!!)
reading or stitching--
ran out here earlier today and asked if
he could be in the Christmas display--so I said yes and he even got a Santa hat--
and no place to really hang them--I do try to rotate some during the holiday--
so did bring them out and displayed them on this chair so I would remember--
the little tree in the corner has some small old old ornaments on it to--
like some are 50 yrs old--big ouch!!!
and this cross stitch I did back in 2005--oh my!!
for me to enjoy when I can get back to sewing!!!
and on the wall by the tree is this little shelf--
and so they are to there to tease me until Christmas morning--
and now here is the main item--
in all it's glory--
oh dear--I do have to still do the gingerbread stuff in the kitchen--
but for out here--we are done--right, di?????
And a bit of a sad note--
Remember how much I loved my Country shop in Watkins Glen, NY and all the things I bought there-- and then they opened up the nice Cafe next door--welll--they are closing both at the beginning of the year--like in going out of business closed!!! there is not going to be any little business's left at this rate in downtown Watkins!!!
ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI
