Time is getting away from me!


WOW, time is really flying by. I usually get my decorating done the weekend after Thanksgiving but this year I've barely gotten started. I'm posting just a few pictures of what I have gotten done so far. Painting has gone well in the keeping room but I won't  get finished until next weekend. Then the larger tree will go up. In the mean time I have everything from that room scattered through my house so I haven't been able to get my other decorating done.
I did get a little  Christmas tree on Brother's tree. I wish the pictures had turned out better, the tree is straight but it looks as if it's tilted in the picture.


                                       I bought two of  these trees from a sale that was an antique store that had gone out of business. She had used the trees for decorations in her store. It has vintage copper bells, pieces of vintage jewelry and old buttons with little square mirrors that are glued on to the end of the boughs; they catch and reflect the light. Sometimes when the sun hits it just right the mirrors just shimmer in the light.             


You can't see them in the picture but there is a little bike, a teddy bear and lots of cute things.
I managed to decorate the mantle anf get the big Santa and a few wreaths up. Hopefully I'll be able to post pictures next weekend of the tress decorated and the keeping room finished.

We had a terrible storm right after I got the wreath on the cross and it blew it down and lots of ornaments were broken. That's OK I've been wanting to replace them with some prim ornies so now would be a good time to do it.

Have a safe happy week.


  1. I am feeling the pinch myself. What a nice tribute to your brother, those are quite pretty. I hope to finish my decor by the end of this week. We shall see.
