Black Friday

Black Friday is the perfect day to start preparing for Christmas ... I decorated last night and this morning instead of going shopping. 

As I emptied out my bins of Christmas stuff, I discovered that I have five salt and pepper sets and three boxes of holiday spreaders (two shown here).  I also dug out the skinny Santa glasses that I salvaged from my mother's things:

The angels out en masse.  Yes, two were made by me when I was very young.  

The tree is up and decorated, the stockings are hung and the Merry Christmas banners are up.

(My tree is pre-strung with lights and opens umbrella-like.  It's all very easy!)

The Christmas playlist is loaded and playing as we speak.

The bed is made with the wondrous Christmas quilt:

And the crystal nutcracker candy jar is filled with Lindt truffles.

Life is good.  The Girls hosted a fun meal yesterday.  I have so much to be thankful for -  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Hope you're having a great holiday weekend.
