I spent some time earlier this month putting up some wintry decorations, like the above boxwood wreath…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand Randy’s stocking which was made for him by a babysitter, long ago.

The fish tank, too, is looking festive with three glass ornaments.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA1 Fish, 2 Fish also have a little nativity scene to get them in the spirit.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOver here, by the fireplace I hung two white wool stockings along with a garland of handmade paper ornaments and antique tin cutters.

Stockings hang on each of the dining chairs.  Of course, I had help getting them just right….

Lilly was a marvelous assistant…

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.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 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!
