Christmas Decorations 2013
It is too hard to put up the tree when we are both working (and worse is taking it down!). But I put up a few Christmas decorations this year. Here they are.
I set up this beautiful Christmas candle, give to us by Virginia Hobbs, on the dining room table. The two small candles set up on opposite corners of the tablecloth I bought many years ago in Nuremberg, Germany.
Here's the mantel in the family room--resplendent!
I collected these ornament balls over some years from the old Paper Doll store that used to be on the Pearl Street Mall. That store had a large pig out in front and lovely things inside.
I ordered these plates from an insert in a Sunday newspaper. They depict Santa Claus in different scenarios and are titled, "A Grand Old Santa", "Christmas in Paris", "Christmas in Germany", and "Father Christmas." I treasure them.
Here is my nutcracker collection!
And some presents!
