Hello to all my Dear Friends. I hope you all had a great weekend. So are you all still decorating for Christmas??? I know I am, I have been under the weather so I have not been able to do much of any thing. Which is getting me very depressed. I am usually all done by now. I am hoping tomorrow that I will be back on track, I have my Christmas Card swap to get in the mail, and one more Christmas swap box to get in the mail. I feel so bad about being so far behind with my swaps. I really don't like making my sweet blog friends wait. But you all are so understanding and great about it. Ok enough of my self pity. lol; My sweet sister Roxanne has moved back here, and she does not live that far from me. How great is that!!!! I was at her house on Thursday helping her do a little decorating for Christmas. Now they don't have most of their furnisher up yet just in their family room. I did take my camera so I did take some photos. Most of them she did not know I took,,, he he I know shame on me.. She has the most beautiful tree, hang on I will show you....
She put it all together by herself, now for some reason she thinks she has not talent for decorating, but I so disagree, she did a great job don't you think? Sorry it is not a very good photo I had to take it with out my flash and for some reason it came out kind of blurry. So just click on the photo for a closer look.
It has a lot of copper in it with lots of crystal picks ribbon stars and balls. It is a huge tree and so full. They bought it on sale last year fully decorated, they just wrapped it up in tight plastic and laid it in the Van, how cool is that... But this year she had to put all the decorations on... Oh even the lights are a copper color, it has such a great glow. So I did not have to help her with that. I just did some help with the out side.
Now this is my Sweet Sister, sitting in her front living room, she is trying to take off all the light on her very very long garland that were blown out. It did take a while getting them off they were very tangled. Poor sis... But we did get them off. Then she was trying to take them apart so it was not too long for the around the front door, now that was not and easy thing to do, she looked for ever it seemed to find where the they were hooked together. lol
Ahhhh looking for more garland, in the big deep black bag.. She is like me more is more.. It was a very cold and windy day with some snow, but it was fun. Love her wood floors, well I must confess that this is their house they lived in before they moved last year. The couple that were going to buy it changed their minds and so they decided to move back here. So they have no redecorating to do. I will have to take some photos to share of their home, Sis and her hubby did a wonderful job decorating it.
I did her light post, that was my contribution to helping.. ha ha It is a gas light post so I thought a fruit theme would be a nice look, like Charles Dickens. In the back ground is Sis hanging the very long garland.
A close up of the light post she also had some really pretty vintage looking Santa bulbs that I put on too. I think I did a pretty good job.... :} I know I am bragging.
Hmmmmm she is still hanging the garland,,, I hope she was not frozen to the shutters... come to think of it she was there for a while. lol hey would I leave my sweet sister stuck to her house,,,,, hmmm let me think,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, no I guess not. Any hooo it is nice that she is close by again. We used to do a lot together, but this past week I have not been able to. The weather has my Fibro bothering me more that usual, so I am taking my pain pills more. boooooooo. But enough of that. I will have to do a post on the other homes they have lived in, they are so pretty. I have been doing a lot of blog surfing and the Christmas decorating all of you are doing in your homes are so beautiful. I am getting lots of ideas, even on how you wrap your gifts. There are so many talented ladies out there, so many different styles and tastes I so love it. From very grand to very simple, just wonderful. It is better then some Magazines. Oh and all the cooking recipes that every one shares are very yummy looking. Now I ask you where else can one go for Friendship, decorating, cooking, advice and just some one to listen to... when I started this blog I had no idea how many lovely Christian friends the Lord would lead me too... I want to thank you all for all your kind and sweet wonderful comments, and in this busy time of year to take a few minutes to visit me.. I really Love you all... God Bless;
