SHOW & TELL - My Christmas Decoration


More participants here

This week it was very easy to find something at least to show ! I finally attacked the yearly Christmas decoration. This year I rather sulked the Christmas fathers, I am in an angel period !

After a couple of hours under the watchful eyes of cat Rosie it was finally accomplished !



When you enter our living room you have this view. The advent wreath which is not a wreath but has the 4 obligatory candles to light one each sunday before Christmas.

Our (mini) Christmas tree. We used to have a big one from floor to ceiling, but as we not celebrate in our home since a few years, the little one is enough.

(I know you'll hate me for this, ha!)

I enjoyed seeing your home all ready for Xmas! we also have a small (fake) tree. When our son was little we had a real, big one! It's fun to see your cats inspecting the decorations!

It is all looking very bright and Christmassy. I can't get enthusistic this year....no visitors. Rosie is a Santa's helper.

I am no where near in the Christmas mood yet. I am waiting for my son a grandchildren to show up so we can tramp out onto the farm and cut down some Christmas trees. I always insist we use a buck saw and a tobaggan to transport the tree. I feel we are them just like a Currier and Ives painting.

We got our first snow than is going to stay yesterday, about three inches covering the ground. I guess we will have a white Christmas after all.

Hi Gattina, I wanted to leave a message the other day but the computer wouldn't let me.

All I wanted to say really was what a cosy Christmas it looks like you're setting up there..!!
