Deck the Halls....
We have also been putting up wreaths, garland and lights outside. We had to take one of the garlands down today, because the lights quit working...so off to get another string of lights to wrap around the garland. Our outside decorations consist of wreaths hung with red velvet ribbon in each of the large windows. Simple, but pretty. This Fall I picked up two small prelit trees at an auction. I think I paid a whopping dollar for the pair. So, we placed them on either side of the front door. Can't beat that. Then we ended up by doing lighted garland on the top of the railing around our deck behind our house. So, all in all, not bad. This year the house next door to us went all out with colored lights everywhere. So, we're kind of living by the Grizwolds.
I have watched my absolute favorite holiday movie the other night to get in the holiday mode...National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. There are so many funny lines in the movie. Our family loves to interject them into conversation for a laugh.
Our Stitching Group is getting together tomorrow night for our Christmas party. I've made the treats I am taking to share... mini cheesecakes. :) yum. I've also got my ornament made for our exchange, I just haven't wrapped it yet. It wouldn't be normal if I had it all done the day before... At least the glue is dry on my ornament finish.... :)
Next post I will share some pictures of other stitchy Christmas things around our house....
Happy Stitching everyone, that is if you have time for it this busy season.
