The decorations are up . . all of them
It all started on Saturday. The tree was put up, the boys were going to help decorate it, (or so they thought). It was then that
this happened . . .
Power failure to 1/2 of one strand.
It sat there all day Saturday.
And all day Sunday. Monday the hubby and 8 year old grandson worked on it. It took lots of clothes pins, a meter and lots of patience, but it was finally fixed before bedtime.
Tuesday I got it decorated. All 327 ornaments. Well 326, I broke this one. Thank goodness it wasn't one of my Christopher Radkos.
After the tree, I made new valances for the patio door.
Then I made a floor lamp. Think it really qualifies as one?
This is a tree skirt I bought at an after Christmas sale last year. It's beautiful cutout felt. I put a white cloth under it to show off the snow flakes.
Here are the finished pictures of the tree.
