does decorating ever end?

when i bought my house......i couldn't wait to do this. banisters just scream to be decorated!

this is a word that means a lot to me during christmas.....JOY. because my family loves to be happy and laugh.

(not a christmas item) my sis bought me this painting as a house warming present. Birch trees always remind me of where i grew up-North Dakota. sitting outside, in front of our apartment, trying to tear off a big enough piece of the bark of the tree. the spiral chunk giving me hours and hours of thrill. ok probably minutes and minutes but when your a kid heck everything seems like hours. LOL

this picture i just HAD to add. see my carpet? no, i don't have a cleaning husband vacuums like that. its good to be bobbi :)

i just ordered Camille Roskelleys PDF version of her stocking pattern. Im gearing up for Friday Night Sew-In this week. I think me and my guys all need stockings this year made by me. Figgy pudding ones to go with our tree skirt i haven't finished yet. 17 days till christmas....heck i have plenty of time. WINKWINK

Wow! Nice husband! Mine is great too, but he never left a cool pattern like that. I can't wait to see all of the stockings!

We did the garland on the banisters this year too. Just think it makes the house feel 'finished' and I hate taking it down in January.
