Feeling nearly back to normal and trying to catch up with the near week of time I'm behind in Christmas preparations. About the only thing that is finished is the decorating! Here's a few shots from around the house:
In the lawyer's bookcase in the entry, a display of the beaded and sequined satin balls my husband's grandmother made many many years ago. She passed away in about 1970, and my in-laws displayed these in their home for many years before they were passed on to us.
Also in the lawyer's bookcase, a simple ceramic mini creche I've had for years, brass angels given to me decades ago by a dear lady I used to houseclean for, and the card my mother had printed with her drawing of the Madonna and child.
