Christmas- A Little Bah Humbug
The "Bah Hum" Bug got ahold of me this year.
I was not really in the mood to drag out all the decorations, and get a real tree, or unearth the faux!!! Maybe when I have grandchildren!!! LOL That could be a while.........!!
I grabbed two of my small primitive faux trees, and decorated the larger one on the dining room table, and the smaller one by the tv. I used what I had on hand, and what was most accessible, to decorate, with a couple of traditional must haves, that come out every year.
One must-have is a gilt framed picture of St. Nick, the other is a string art Christmas tree that my daughter did when she was in elementary school. I had it framed, and that is hung every year.
The other must-have, is a quilt that I did, in 1992!! It was a Xmas block swap, with the Countryside Quilters of Sterling, Va. I think it was machine quilted by Anne Weber of Ashburn, Va. There might even be a block on there by "our" own Pat Sloan - I'll have to go check!!! My block is the candle block in the top center. I kept the worst of the candles for myself!! LOL My appliqueing has improved greatly since then!!! The flame is a little less than smooth!!!
The place settings are hunt themed dishes I got a couple of years ago in the thrift store, the Frosty ornament was a gift from a former neighbor, and the huntsman and hounds was also a thrift store find. Christmas is not complete without one of my Santas, and the Hallmark Frosty, who will play and sing ad nauseum, if allowed!!!!
I'm sure as the days go by, I will drag out some more holiday memorabilia and decorate, but for now - I'm done!!!
