and have been lighting it already, doing an Advent devotion each day - just for me. The stereo that looks like a black and red transformer toy, is set up in a great spot that I had never considered til now. So now I can actually reach it to program the cd's and the aggressive looks are hidden by wicker and fake ivy. LOL!
The house is filled with warmth, light, color and peace. I used a lot more real greenery this year and got rid of some of the artificial stuff.
I took pictures tonight but the camara apparently has cataracts and I will have to try in daylight.
But a couple turned out, and here's the funny one! I lit the huge White Pine outside dd's room but didn't do a very good job. It was sparse and the lights drooped so bad I had decided to take them down. But dh saw them lit tonight and wondered how I managed to get them to droop and sag in the shape of a reindeer! LOL!
A couple more pics turned out as well.
A kissing ball. Do I really think I'll get kissed while working at the sink? Nope. But it was fun to make and it sure is cool looking!
