With only five days left til Christmas, I thought I’d share a few pictures of how our holiday is progressing.
I recently found this wonderful old wool blanket at an antique mall, and Motor Man insisted that it come home with us.
We put up our Christmas tree this past weekend. Sundae approves; as usual she’s claimed a spot on the tree skirt.
Last Friday night, our little town held its Evening Christmas Craft Market. My friend, Donna, and I attended. Donna believes in dressing to celebrate every occasion, so she supplied me with the light bulb “necklace”. We glowed our way down Main Street.
We had a great time at the craft market. This was one of our favorite booths featuring rustic hand-painted signs and other country decor.
Donna’s Christmas gift to Motor Man was this cute Rudolph stocking cap. He was such a good sport about posing for a picture, but was a little upset afterward that we didn’t tell him his “nose” was crooked.
The decorating adds festive touches and makes it LOOK like Christmas. But spending time with family and friends is part of the FEELING of the holiday. Yesterday: lunch with a close friend, and a visit planned today with a special cousin. And next week, of course, more gatherings.
Hope it’s looking (and feeling) like Christmas for you.
