I put up a skinny tree in the living room and a 43′ tall table top tree in the dining room. Then throughout the house I use smaller trees with lights to brighten dark corners. I have been collecting ornaments for decades and have fond memories of my Mom taking us to Ah Sam’s in San Mateo, California, to choose our annual ornament.  Each ornament holds some special meaning for me.

I’ve also been doing a lot of sewing. I made two Christmas quilts and scads of pillows. Seems I’ve gotten hooked on embroidery and wool appliqué lately.
