Christmas time again

 I love Christmas really I do. I love decorating and making cookies, I love the advent calenders I love going to concerts and doing stuff with my kids, BUT.... this year has been crazy, I am working on Brayns work party I promise to show pitchers later however its taken all my spare time.  So finally a week into Dec. my Christmas deco is finally up and ready to view, so here is a sampling of what is up.
This is the  buffet that Bryan built for  me a few years ago and those fantastic pictures are from Bridgett. I love my murcery glass I even know how to make it!  more on that later.
a few years ago i fell in love with this Charlie Brown tree.  I love the old fashion look of it.  It sits at the top of my stairs.
I love decorating my room I have a pastel paper and glitter village and the one on top of the armour.  I love putting up my canopy and draping garland and lights it makes such a fun place to read one of the many ok (47) Christmas books that we've colected over the years.
the kids do their own trees every year.  I give them their hallmark ornament and they get to fight over the department 56 and travel ornaments. They love having their own tree to put up and add all the fun cute stuff they make at school!
I love pastels and my office is white and cream so I love changing it out for the seasons.  my joyous  noel banner and little white tree are so fun in my only girly girly space in the house.
ok my tree I really really really want a glitter tree a gold shinny vintage tree.  My darling friend has one and I'm gold with envy!!! so I tried hard to make do with what I had and inserted about 6 extra large picks made out of a gold tinsel tree.  I put so much crap on it I had to take a photo with all the lights on and the flash or it just looked like a glowing gold tree which is exactly what I wanted!
Merry Christmas to all and now I'm going to take a nap.

Gorgeous! So a few months back Studio 5 was looking for a new contributor and totally thought you would be great, and then I remembered how incredible busy you are so I didn't bug you to go for it. Stunning decor as usual.

So, since you are all done at your about coming to mine. I've been trying to get lights on the tree for 4 days. My fingers are just tired of all the cords, lights, and light clips. Maybe I'll be done in time for Christmas morning. At this rate, maybe not!
