FOR NOW IS THE TIME OF CHRISTMAS

Make we merry, both more and less, for now is the time of Christmas...

The final tree is standing...in the kitchen. Branches weighed down with birds, nest, gardening ornaments and various wooden santas, reindeer, boats and angels.

A Gardening Angel.

A Santa under sparkling birch branches

The mantle glowing with candlelight and crystals.

Crystal garlands, snowflakes and stars draping and dripping from the chandelier.

A crystallized wreath embellishing the mirror over the piano.

And finally- garishly wrapped packages under the boughs.

Woa! You are the queen of Christmas gift wrapping. Whoohoo!!
Seeing your pictures reminds me how much I want to "grow up" and have a house I can decorate...
