I have, everything but the Christmas tree. I'm waiting with that until just before Christmas as with our climate, it won't last very long. And we don't want just the skeleton of a tree at Christmas, do we? But since I like a a few little lights I always decorate my corkscrew hazel branches.
with the pottery angels underneath
as well as my Scandinavian winter village
but my favorite is this little nativity scene by the same artist who made my angels above
and the back of it.
I decorated this fresh pine wreath and the fragrance is wonderful.
There was even time for a bit of crafting. I made this little Christmas gnome for the quilt group gift exchange today.
With all that done, the baking finished, the gifts bought or made and wrapped as well as the cards and packages sent I can sit back and relax. Other than entertaining guests, I'm planning to start this quilt "Scandinavian Christmas by Lynette Anderson". Bliss!
I hope you are also taking some time out to enjoy this special time.
