Holiday Decor '08..

Rufus is such a fatty..antique quilt on the table and he's happy..note the stack of boxes and envelopes [swaps mailed out to Alaura, Tiffany, Amy, Sandra, Annie.. did I miss anyone???]

I am just in a Holiday blah... and hardly decorated but once in awhile it hits me and I have to put something out.. today was the quilt...

A few of my Santa's..

Tree in guest room with pastels and swaps from the past and a couple of recent treats..

A bunny I made from a antique wool petticoat and a old glass ornament and trade card.

The Snowman in green was a swap gift from Annie in Okla. Vivian's 'Snowman Ornament Swap'..

More old and new Santa's...

German glass favorites...

A old Santa from a Store display...he moves about and waves from his chimney perch..lots of neat old toys in his sack.

Some Old and lots of New Glass Ornaments..

Again this year I did only the table trees..maybe next year I will do the big tree! but no one here this year and my dear husband works 12hrs. on Christmas... so just me and the kitty's and lots of cookies and a big pile of magazines to catch up on..

If this looks familiar it's the fall tree but just changed out the topper and added more ornaments and garland..I am sooo lazy...just not up to the task..

Baked all yesterday, lemon sugar cookies, shortbread, gingersnaps, cranberry bread and the family tradition prune tarts and a butternut squash pie.. Christmas eve will do a mincemeat pie and lumberjack cookies [my husbands favorite] and have a fruitcake too..we will just carb out til New Year's Eve!
German paper pulp Snowman die cuts..

Wish these angels would come here and help ...but guess its just fine for this year..big or little a Christmas tree is always pretty.
