More Christmas Decorations

This past Saturday night started off the Christmas celebrations. Our Sunday School class had a get together at one of our members home. We all brought different things to eat...and eat we did ...but up big. You know us Baptist women can cook - just take a look at our Baptist men. We ate and watched the University of Oklahoma beat up on the Missouri team big time. GO SOONERS! We came home at half time and finished watching the game. This is sitting on our coffee table.

This collection of white Christmas items is the only arrangement I did not add a lot of different items. Just left it simple . Nothing I had seemed to go with it. Enlarge the picture to see the swan sleigh...I found it this summer at a yard sale and just loved it. It seems so regal!

Close up of the tree...the picture does not really show the velvet, beads, etc on the gold balls. Some of the red ones have glitter all over them.

All rolled into one picture - gives you the idea as to how it looks in the living room.

More to follow in a few days.

Beginning of a new week...lots of do ...several people in hospital now. In fact, Leon is at hospital now visiting a couple...then going to get new tires on the pick up (our Christmas present to that vehicle). On Wednesday our best friend is having knee replacement surgery - so we will be with him and his wife during the operation. Throw in doing laundry, cooking, shopping, sewing and of course quilting I will be a busy lady.

Have a wonderful week...count your blessings!

Everything looks so pretty! I just love your tree!

Sounds like you all had a wonderful time! I think it is great that people are there for each other through sickness. It means alot to know that you have friends and loved ones praying for you!

Don't your Christmas decorations look wonderful! I've never really had the time to much with greenery, except cut some holly and ivy on Christmas Eve to decorate the table and the mantelpiece. This year I've been sewing lots of things, though they won't look much when they're up I fear as they're all quite small. Still, it's a start. We'll leave buying our Christmas tree until nearer Christmas, to make sure it stays fresh as long as possible and to keep needle drop to a minimum.

LOL at you Baptist eaters. :) I am one too!

Sounds like you have a busy week ahead of you.

By the way, my little sis at college made your gingersnaps and LOVED them.

I love the contrast of the white items with the colors of your tree. So beautiful.

Love your red and gold tree. I have lots of red,green and gold too. I particularly like your ornaments that are red pointed with the six sides.

I bought a santa at goodwill today. He needs a little something, so I'm going to give him some glitter or something and then hopefully post him.

Oh, and Baptist here too. :)
