It's Official

CHRISTMAS IS A'COMIN'




A new acquisition.  This one reminds me so much of the 'bottle brush' trees my Grandma Peters had.


The lights are turned on but you can only see them on one of the trees.  You'll just have to trust me lol.

I seem to have a 'thing' for snowmen, snowflakes and trees
and yes.....

gifts locked and loaded
wrapped and bowed.

All that's left is mailing my Canadian cards, cleaning, food shopping and cooking.
Let the festivities begin!

  1. You are, as usual, way ahead of me.
    I have bought a couple of gifts. Wrapped none. Posted none. Put up no decorations.
    I have made the first batch of Christmas cakes though.

  2. I love your decorations! All those happy little snowmen. The trees are lovely.
    My home is gift free right now, I need to get cracking on that.
    Need to start baking the mince pies too.

    1. You do your mince every year don't you? Your family must truly appreciate them and you.

  5. I still have your little owl you gave me. He holds a very special place here throughout the year--and especially on Christmas. Pictures to follow . . .

  6. It was crossing my mind that you like snowmen just as you got around to saying it :)

    Loved the tour! And I never thought of putting the finished presents on top of a high piece of furniture. Well, first I would need to clean the dust off ... but it's still a great idea, for kids OR cats.

  9. Hey Delores,

    Your post and magical photos came very close to making me almost get into the spirit of the jolly season.

    Thanks for this and here's to um, Boxing Day Eve!

    Gary :)

  10. Good for you! I'm a real slacker about putting up decorations this year, but maybe you've shamed me into getting my butt in gear this weekend.
