my first small christmas tree 2016

k
This is my first small christmas tree.
Since I just had to fluff the branches
and see what it looks like, I decided
to set it up.  I work from home and it
makes me smile when I look at it.  The
magic of the season I call it.  In all,
20 cross stitch ornaments.   5 are from 
fellow cross stitchers. thank you
to each of you for sending me ornaments
last year.  After losing everything, it's good to
enjoy the process of replacing things.
I never had a small tree, but it perfectly
holds all of the ornaments and antique
christmas glass balls.  The tree is 
4 1/2 ft tall.  As I make more ornaments, I
will get a bigger tree.
right side of the tree
close up
display boxes.  only 9.99 at Marshalls
this is the large size.  the top box
is a chalk design and it reminds me 
of a year in chalk cross stitch designs.

This is a picture of the bouquet of roses
from my garden.  my roses are still
blooming today.  Amazing fragrance.

election creativity

 On this election day, I had to do some
creativity.  my therapy.  I have election fatigue.
I pray for this country.  whoever wins, I think
our country will never be the same.  it shouldn't
be a one to two years process.  you shouldn't
have to be a billionaire to run.  does our vote count
I do not know, but I still voted.  I want to
believe it counts.   according to one I am a deplorable, 
she should be in prison.  ok, on to the good stuff.
prairie schooler always makes you smile.

 These beauties I found in an antique store.
glass, heavy with real metal for hanging.
back when things were made with quality
materials.  love the color of these

 Heart cast iron trivet.
I love heart shaped things
a bargain for 8 dollars.
 The spare bedroom done in Americana
my friend from NY actually got to use
this room Saturday night.



 Roses from my garden, still blooming 
in November .  I will post a bouquet on my next post.
