Yesterday after noon I finally got up my Christmas tree, just put on the lights and thought I would wait to decorate it. I did not get it decorated today, I was not feeling very energetic today, must be the weather. I did get my Village set up it looks very pretty. I am going to get some new buildings and more people. It is looking so lonely. lol I took some photos to share with you all.
This is where I am going to set it up now just pretend that you don't see my wall aircon. Any hooo this is the spot for it.
So this is my tree, I have about 800 lights on it. I love lots of lights. Hubby worries that I am going to blow up the house. It does not look to bad with just lights. I have been looking though some old Christmas Magazines trying to find some different way to decorate my home. I did not realize how many of them I had, I keep all of my favorite ones.
Sorry this is not very light, I did not have a lot of light in the dinning room where I set it up. My flash on the camera was not working very well.
This one is not too bad, just click on them for a closer look. I have a school house, church, old Victorian House two of them. I need to get some batteries for my Christmas tree in the town square, and the light post. I love my villiage, for years I have wanted one, and two yrs ago Hubby surprised me by getting me a couple to start one. I am looking for something really big to set it up better that I can add more too. lol
This is Just My doodles Christmas Quilt. I love this one. I made this one last year. I set it on my dinning room table or on a shelf.
Here is a close up, this pattern I found in a book called, Favorite Applique' and Embroidery Quilts by Betty Alderman she has some really great projects, they are all pretty easy for the most part. I am really in the quilting mood again, have not been the mood for a while it comes and goes. Oh I also had my first Christmas Card Swap in the mail today, I was so excited, she was very fast in sending hers out. I am getting all of mine ready this week.
It is from Joy Northrop. Love the white sparkly snowflake. The little boy on the card is so cute, thank you so much for my Christmas Card Joy I love it. Well I am sorry I don't have many decorated holiday photos yet, but keep stopping by I will be taking lots more. I still have the out side to get done too, I will do that this weekend. The rest of the week will be decocted to the inside. I am only putting up one tree this year I have lots of table top ones but my six foot one will sit this one out. I just don't have it in me this year to do up two trees. I hope next year I will. I am trying a less is more this year, I am not really a less is more kind of girl, I the more is more type. ha ha So we will see how it goes.
Well I hope you all enjoyed the few photos I had to share, I want to thank you all for the very sweet and very kind comments you left me. I so love to read each and every one, so please keep leaving me some... lol; Have a great week every one.. God Bless
