Good evening Friends,
It is Thursday evening in balmy s.e. FL. We had a tiny cold front move in but by Sunday it is supposed to be 80 degrees again. It certainly does NOT feel like Christmas.
Monday I decorated our tiny tree and have been enjoying it ever since. It’s always disappointing to take a tree down, and I know it’s because all of the color and sparkle are no longer there. I enjoy it while it’s up. I turn on the lights first thing in the morning then go make coffee.
Here is our little $2 tree from a yard sale a few weeks back, decorated with crocheted and beaded wire ornies that I made and some from a swap over several years between online friends in a forum. The ornies from the swaps are special and bring back memories from that time. Special ladies one and all.
As a comparison, here is our humongous ‘curbside shopped’ tree from last year, with all the wonderful ornies from our 42 years of marriage and some that were DH’s grandmothers too. It is fun to do a tree this size, but not always. This is only ‘half’ of this tree.
I left off the back bottom branches so that is would go flat against the wall.
Below is a picture that I captured the other morning when I went out to the scullery. The sun was shining in through the window and this tugged at my heart.
Here are the crocheted and beaded hearts I made yesterday. I made two different ones today, but don’t have pictures yet. These below are 2” across, and have 90 beads each. They are made with size 30 crochet thread using a size 13 hook, tiny, and I wear strong glasses while creating these. I really enjoy making them.
Well, it’s time to go get horizontal to read before sleep. I’m actually working 4 days instead of 3 so have two more days of work, before I’m home again to putter around here.
DH is doing ‘mud’ work in the caravan. This little, project is a delight.
Enjoy each day of this Christmas season, seeking the beauty and good in each day.
Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady
