Finally all the decorations are up and the house looks warm and sparkly. I love the feeling when it all comes together and the lights are put on and I can rest on the sofa. As usual I am always happy with the end results.
The tree lights were of course the pain in the ___________ that they normally are but the worse was the tangled up ornament hooks. I finally took them over to the kitchen counter where I layed out a dish towel and just shook them to help break up the tangled mess.
My main bathroom is even decorated. I have a white lace shower curtain in there so I attached red bows on the hooks as well as on the window curtain, and placed a scented sache of lace and ribbon filled with cinnamon potpourri on the counter inside a square gold trimmed candle holder.
All that is left for me to do is 4 batches of peanut brittle and wrap a few gifts.
We do a Christmas Eve get together every year since the two kids I have in town go to their inlaws for Christmas dinner. So all is ready to rock and roll for that.
I will post pictures at a later date and can hardly wait to see everyone elses.
