I worked on decorating 3 Christmas trees this week. (Well, if you don't count the little ceramic tree, the already decorated tabletop tree in the main bathroom, and the little wire tree.) I added the third tree this year that I bought on sale after Christmas last year for the entry. I had so many snowmen ornaments that I decided to theme that one:
I thought I might have to go out to buy more snowman ornaments but, as it turns out, I already had plenty. The topper is a snowman made from plant pots. I also added some crochet snowflakes made by my late Grandma. She was so talented!
I also found a little snowman to hang off the front door's doorknob and today while at the thrift shop, I found a wooden snowman bowl to add to the snowman "collection":
Dining room tree:
The angel on this one was made by my sister-in-law for my first baby. I put it on each of my kids' cribs so I think of it as their "guardian angel". The tree skirt is a latch hook one that I did many years ago. It's all bunched up because our dog likes to mess with it.
Living room tree (a 9-footer this year):
The crochet angel on top was another of my late Grandma's creations.
Of course, one can never have enough ornaments so I vow next year to "finish" some of the many cross stitch ornaments I have done or received over the years.
I finished and mailed off the model so I was able to stitch and finish a little freebie from Lori Brechlin for the Prim Stitchers Society Facebook group. It's called "Sleighbells":
Our church choir's cantata is this Sunday. We've had 3 rehearsals for that in addition to the little Faith band rehearsal. I've been drinking a lot of tea to take care of my throat.
I'm still doing some shopping but almost finished. On to cookie baking! It seems I work off a daily list these days.
