“it’s the most wonderful time of the year!”
I spent some time earlier this month putting up some wintry decorations, like the above boxwood wreath…and Randy’s stocking which was made for him by a babysitter, long ago.
1 fish, 2 fish
The fish tank, too, is looking festive with three glass ornaments.1 Fish, 2 Fish also have a little nativity scene to get them in the spirit. Over here, by the fireplace I hung two white wool stockings along with a garland of handmade paper ornaments and antique tin cutters.
Above the mantle….
’twas the night before christmas
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (design by Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives) floats serenely.
Stockings hang on each of the dining chairs. Of course, I had help getting them just right….

Lilly was a marvelous assistant…
“see? all you need are some needle-sharp claws.” ~ lilly
Because of all the claws and curiosity that reside in our abode, we don’t have a large Christmas tree. However, we do have two small feather trees that perch high above the floor, out of reach of paws and claws.
These trees hold my grandmothers antique ornaments. Ellis is in charge of tree trimming…

And, where is Otis all this time?
“i have no shame.” ~ the oatbran
I can’t say I blame him. Given the choice between a muscle relaxing massage or hours of cleaning and decorating, there’s no question which I’d choose.
whatever you decide to do today, enjoy it to the utmost!
