Deck the Halls.













This week I've been busy with holiday decoration. Himself will be in Spain for the holidays and he said he would like to see the house decorated so he could enjoy it all before he left. Well, nothing for it but to haul the artificial tree out of storage. Early yesterday morning I decided it was time to get it done. I can't say that I was in the best of moods for this job as I figured it was far to early to put the tree, etc. up. It took me most of the morning to get the lights and decorations on the tree. When finished, I plugged in the lights and stepped back and realized that I had put up the wrong tree. I'll just say one thing, it's staying up!!!! Why the wrong tree you might ask. Well, it's an old tree that was losing it's needles and a couple of branches wouldn't sit right and really should have been thrown out. I, for some reason, had it nicely packed up and stored. So, it's now getting another kick at the can.

The weather has been wonderful for the most part. Just a couple of days ago I was doing things outside with just a sweater on. Unreal!!

I've taken a few pictures of some of the inside decorations. Still a bit left to do. I do much the same thing every year so some of you will have seen most of it before.

The Tree.


Old Bones of course always makes an appearance.


A few more......

Your decorations are gorgeous! The tree is so pretty, it doesn't look as though it needs to be thrown out at all. I love your Santa collection and the way you've arranged them in the garland with lights and beads. And Old Bones gave me quite a laugh!

Well one positive thought on the early decorating is that you can sit back and enjoy while everyone else is racing to get theirs done. It all looks great.

Awww...how very lovely and spiritual.

Early? Most places around here had theirs up in November! Mr. Bones always adds a festive air, great to see him again.

Well done, looks lovely. I've only got as far as bringing the box of decorations in from the garage*!*

The tree looks really,really beautiful OC, I could look at that for hours. Is the star part of the light set or a separate decoration? I have never seen an illuminated star decoration on sale here, I think it is lovely.

Shy Songbird, the star is a separate decoration. I was lucky enough to find it in a box of Xmas decorations at a Goodwill a few years ago and am very pleased with it.
