The reality of the Christmas season is upon us..
After doing the usual Saturday errands, we managed to break out the Christmas Decorations but not before the floors were vacuumed and washed and the furniture dusted..
The three large bins were brought up from the storage locker and we embraced the decorating process..
The wreath is on the door..
..and of course, Doug says..’Are we done now?’
The tree was the next item ..it is a little one..perched upon the end table.. but pretty still the same..
The Christmas decorations are a history of our married life..the first ornament to be hung is the ‘first Christmas together’ from 1981..31 times that lovely ornament has adorned our tree.
Quite the accomplishment to still have it intact and filled with many special memories.
The tree skirt was made by my friend, Brenda’s, Mom, Melba..a lovely quilted keepsake that has been under our tree for more than 10 years..
…the coffee table runner is also a quilted item from Melba..
..the mantle is adorned with the garland..
..and a close up of my favourite Christmas decoration..
Christmas time is a trip down memory lane..our ‘history’ in a few plastic bins..
Now….onto making that grocery list, and finish the shopping and the wrapping..Tomorrow..that was enough work for one day..
