and i have these wonderful vintage glass christmas ornaments to add to the tree this year. every year the tree is over decorated, and that's the way i like it. the vintage ornaments were dumpster dived and in remarkably good shape. some were missing but none were broken. they are painted and decorated with glitter and made of that fine, thin glass that barely seems to be able to hold its own weight. i can't wait to get the lights for the tree so i can decorate it.
today i will find the boxes of decorations. get the ornaments all together and ready to put on the tree, find the hooks . . . and get out stockings. kelli gets a dalmation or a tigger stocking. doc and i have ones made by my mother. i don't associate them with her, but i love the cross stitched disney characters on them.
then there are the million silk poinsettias to distribute into every place i can. i have a large silk ivy that i think i'll put some pointsettias in. and a glass wall vase that sits in a wrought iron back piece. it may get some other decoration, too.
i was blase about this, and now i'm all excited, just from putting some lights up.
