Oh my Gosh can you believe that Christmas is almost upon us? I don't know where the year went and I have so much still to be done. I did manage to get the house decorated a little so I will put up a picture or two to share.
 This is the main Christmas tree.  I have a few ornaments that I have made and there are snowflakes that my Grandmother crocheted, the tree is never complete with out them.  Can you see all of those tiny hemlock pine cones, I must say I'm quite proud of those all strung on fishing line for yards of garland.

 This is a small tree with stitched ornaments many made by me, but there are some that were made for me by special friends.

 Just a few close ups. I know the little black cat is really a Halloween ornament, but it looks so much like my Mim that we lost last year that I just new that she must spend Christmas with us on the tree.
 This little tree is for Danny who loves to fish so...
 A few lures so he won't feel left out. His fishing club is having their meeting here this week do you think they will notice?

 Here are a few Carriage House Stockings.  I stitched Noah and I'm not sure how I managed to get the two that Jean stitched, I must have looked pitiful when I was packing them up and she felt sorry, I think I'm going to have to perfect that look!  Oh who am I kidding I guess I already have because I have the stockings.
A few bottle brush trees and a favorite little Santa that is made out of a piece of wood.
I'm glad that I get to share these pictures with everyone here on the blog, it seem a shame that you all can't make it  over for some Christmas Cheer.  I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas season it's a great time to look back on all that was accomplished and to be thankful for all that we have!

Your home looks lovely and your trees are beautiful. I'm inspired to start a tree with stitched ornaments!
