The weekend is here!
Not sure what the weather will be.
I did hear 24 tornadoes ravaged in the South.
We are suppose to have heavy rain
with high winds.
Bob brought in more wood
just in case we lose power at home.
So glad we have a fireplace.
If you are a detective,
you have figured it out that my blog titles
thus far have been Christmas songs.
With each song representing something
in my post.
Today is no exception with my star box.
Today is part of my living room
on each side of our tv.
The tree here is an antique feather one.
A very fragile one I might add.
In fact so fragile, every time I tried
to add my antique candles in their tin clips,
the candles would fall over.
I was able to get only three to stay put,
and gave up.
I would NEVER light them for fear of starting a fire.
I included this bowl of lady apples in this display.
I want to tell you all that this bowl is a reproduction.
When I did a few presentations
for our antique club members,
I wanted to show them the difference of a real bowl
versus a repro.
Most folks would think this is real, but it is not.
I changed up my bowls to be blue and wood now.
With the tree being so fragile, I decided just
to hang these chenille candy canes and stockings
I created a few years ago.
Here is a close up of one of the candles.
Wide shot view.
Just love how the blue and red go so well here
for a Christmas display.
I opted for a faux amaryllis plant instead of a poinsettia.
My mom use to have real ones in her home
this time of year.
A close up of my first Arnett Santa.
I say first, because I was able to purchase
another one last month.
Night time view.
Now for the other side of our tv.
This Santa is almost as tall as me.
Was told it was a store display.
I also have the life size sleigh,
but nowhere to put both in the house.
Well here might be a place...I just thought of this.
So maybe next year the sleigh will come out.
Here you can see Santa in the corner.
Well off to Tim Hortons for my
Peppermint Mocha Iced Capp and
a blueberry bagel.
I go there each weekend.
The staff always gives Tundra a plain Timbit,
however he will not eat it until he gets
inside the store.
He is so funny!
I always toss it in the back seat for him.
Nope mom. I dont want it right now.
I end up taking it out of the car,
hand it to him at the back door.
He then waits for me to open the door,
with Timbit in his mouth.
Once inside he prances to the front door
and eats his Timmie as I call it.
It's funny because if I toss a piece of
a bagel to him in the car...he will eat that....
but no...not the Timmie.
Not until he is in the store.
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
Star Of Wonder Blessings To All!
