JR made a trip to Chicago for several days, and unfortunately because of some major work projects, I just couldn't go along. While it made me sad that I wasn't able to go on a little road trip, I was content to be able to stay home, put on some holiday tunes, make baby stuff and more baby stuff, and make more Christmas happen in my home. I have to confess, while I missed blogging these past several days, I did feel like I could put some concentrated effort into all of my projects.
Late nights of sewing, lots of shopping ,and some knitting, too.
JR brought a tree home just before he left for Chicago, so I got to set it up all by myself, including sawing off the end in my pajamas and slippers in 6 inches of snow! Who needs a man in the house? I even had to shovel the driveway all by myself, since a lake effect snowstorm decided to wait until he got drove out of WNY to dump several inches on our neighborhood.
Anyway, back to the tree.
Now, I must confess, we decided since we already had two small trees by the fireplace, we were going to do a third table top tree, which only ended up being only about 4 1/2 feet tall. By the time I finished trimming it, and got it in the bucket, and on the table, it showed itself to be a proud Christmas tree, diminuative as it is.
It's all bedazzled in vintage red glass ornaments, with some aqua thrown in here and there. Glass icicles are dripping from the branches, glittered sprays of red and aqua are tucked in among the branches, and little twinkle lights illuminate the whole she-bang.
This little tree presides over the dining room, where the table is set for dessert
And the holiday bar is ready for guests, or just for ourselves
While we wait for Santa to bring us a new baby any day now.
I'm excited there already was a Christmas Baby.
