Presents wrapped. Check

Room ready for mom. Check
She will be arriving this morning
in order to miss the impeding snowstorm.
We will go out for dinner tonight,
and eat in the rest of the week.
Well maybe eat out again on Christmas Eve
since I will be working the gift shop that day.
Just until 3:00pm though.
Today is the final room to show you all.
The last part of our living room.
This is a chalkware Santa bank.
I added him to a wood trencher
with some lights and greens.
My handmade Santa tree.
To the left is a very large pie peel on the wall.
This was one of my first Santa's I made.
The pattern came from the Create and Decorate magazine.
This is the view our guests would see
coming in from our front door.
I just love it in here at night.
Placed this little tree next to the chair I sit in.
Just added mercury garland and prim
chenille candy canes.
A velvet star on top.
Beneath a small pair of red mittens
with a candy cane tea light.
Faux poinsettias in my crock.
Guess who I caught underneath.
Our kitty Shadow.
A few more of my quilts.
In other news.
Bob's blood pressure has gone back
to normal numbers, so the meds
seem to be working.
Thank you everyone for your prayers
and thoughts. Most appreciated!
Hoping everyone has all of their
Christmas preparations completed.
Well off to work.
Magical Christmas Blessings To All!
