Merry Christmas!

This is our little LIVE tree that we will plant outside after the holidays, we also have a large decorated artificial tree. I am not a decorator - and I didn't put up any of my crazy quilt ornaments! Weird, I know. I love to make it and give it a home, but rarely keep my own work. ONE DAY... I do want to do a real cq - like a throw size for a KEEPER! But not today.

This is a snow-globe - WOW, huh! It was a gift this year. I've never seen a snow-globe that wasn't round and you had to turn it upside down and shake to make it snow. This one has a light inside and pretty snow, and the carolers sing, "WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS"! And you don't even have to shake it - you just flip the switch... The street lamp even comes on. Oh, and on the back side there is a dog standing up to peek in the window. I love it.

Tonight the company starts rolling in and we will have a house full for a week.
