Good evening, everyone, and it is a mild one here on Long Island. At 5:30 the temperature is reading 56! I hope wherever you are you are enjoying the season, and not exhausted from all the busy ness!
I wanted to show you my new porch tree. Last year in January, I picked it up for 12.00 after all the discounts and coupons . I got it at BBB with the porch in mind. 7ft. pre lit.
It was an experiment, I didn’t know if the wind would constantly knock it over. So far so good, so next year I will add some ornaments.
My wreath is faux, with a French Horn wired in, and real greens from the yard. It is battery operated, so it lights up at dark. Look mom, no wires! I added pine cones, baby’s breath and some ornaments.
See the speaker under the tree? Christmas music fills the air!
Here’s how it looks at night.
I have a small one on the back deck so we can see it from the den. It kept blowing over, so I took it out of the stand, and put it in the umbrella stand.
Ta Da, problem solved. Next year I will do that on the front one too! In the background you can see my white bench adorned with a wreath and some battery operated lights . Did I mention that there is no one here in winter and it is so DARK!
Please excuse the cord, I will have to hide that tomorrow!
I bought one of those Bliss lights (QVC) like they have in Disney World to see how it would work on the tree in front. DH wasn’t up to climbing the ladder to put the lights on this year.
I wish they made them in white! It would be so much easier than putting lights up! If you look carefully, you can see the Holy Family in the lights. See them? If not you still have a few days to straighten up your act and get on the good list before Cmas!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I hope to post my special table Mon or Tues. for the Let’s Dish Christmas edition.
Tuesday the weather was a very different story, ice and snow. Our gkids Christmas Concert was 90 miles away, but it was the Kdgn gson’s first, and I didn’t want to miss it!
Another gson in 2nd grade…
The third graders do the Nativity…
Seeing the whole school from Kdgn to 8th grade perform is such a spirit booster. The grandparents eyes fill with tears as those little voices sing Silent Night!
Wishing you all the blessings of this holy season!
Hope your kitchen smells heavenly!
I am joining Alma for Seasonal Sunday. I am also joining Susan for Metamorphosis Mon. Please go over and visit!
Thanks for stopping by!
