Finally got to changing the room around and getting the tree up. This table usually has a two drawer Spool cabinet which is now under the table on the floor and an old lamp that we use as a night light. Then a good bit of glass as we were collectors. I say were as we did sell a good bit before we moved into this smaller home.
This is a 4 ft. artificial which I went to several years ago as just being easier. You can see I have most of the old ornaments and the new skirt.
The stained glass angel was given to me several years ago by an old friend that we met in College and he ended up as the Father-in - law of my niece who came back to the same college that my DH and many other family members graduated from and found their mates.
He took up stained glass work after he retired from the ministry. I like it. Usually sits in one of my windows.
This is another view showing the other old sleighs that I have collected over the years. The small ones are considered salts. On the mantle I have the Vaseline one that belonged to my Mother-in-law.
You can also see the Feed Sack quilt which I'm quilting. This is where it sits on the chair next to my lounge chair so I can easily get it.
See how bare it looks outside now
This shows my fireplace and mantle. It is the same stone as the outside of the house
Here's a closeup of the left side. A couple of the deer with the old trees and at the end between a pair of candles, the red bulb tree I talked about in an earlier blog.
This is the right side with the sleigh and old Santa and a few wrapped gifts and the deer pulling. My DMIL
always set up a little display like this on her coffee table. I've added a larger angel at the end.
My stocking from our exchange last year on the TB Yahoo group.
The picture is an oll painting of Burnside bridge which was a big battle during the Civil War down outside of Sharpsburg.
My DD got it at a silent auction at their church a couple years ago. One of the ladies had donated it. Sits right there on top of the fireplace door.
So Now I have packages wrapped and am ready for Christmas, Except getting some little thing for each of the Grandchildren to open for their Christmas besides the money we give them.
Hope you are all getting close to finished.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my living room ready for Christmas Day.
