Countdown Begins


I’m talking about 3 things. The countdown to Christmas, to the New Year, & to my 500th posting. This is post # 496, so starting now, I will keep a list of all who post comments on my postings, & when I get to #500 I will draw a name & send a  threadplay prize.

Here is a little tour of just a few of our decorations.

I have 3 small trees around the stairwell, along with all of my teddy bears & friends.

A Santa train along with Pluto behind it are resting on the bookcase that my DH built.

Above left is the main tree, & right is a smaller one by the back window. Below are the gifts I just finished wrapping & embellishing with Embossed snowflakes, for my DH.

The Sugartown Village is set up around the TV (DH was watching ESPN), and in the kitchen Santa stands guard over the streusel cake I baked for tonight’s dinner.

My baby, Corey came over with his girl Tasha for dinner & gifts. Christmas has officially begun for us. Happy holidays to all.

Have a nice Christmas then!
I have just one tree, and I only put it up yesterday. But now I'm getting into holiday mood!

Merry Christmas Deb. Your Home Christmas Decorations are lovely. Your Thread Play flowers are gorgeous. Your Christmas Luncheon with your friends look like you all were having heaps of fun. And of course I love ALL your lovely photos of Alaska. Hugs Judy

I envy you your readiness for the festivities! I am so behind this year and a wee bit stressed! I just hate the stress! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Your house looks so lovely. I realyy like the brown paper wrapping with the snowflakes. I think I'll do that next year. Or maybe white. I have a HUGE role of white paper.

Have a WONDERFUL Christmas, and Happy 500

My favorites are the bear who looks like "you'ld better not try to take my tree", and the bookshelves. I like to see what's on other peoples reading lists. Happy holidays. Gilli
