Poppy says this is the prettiest tree we've ever had. To me, it looks the same as it did last Christmas, and the Christmas before that. Anyhow, I'll take the rare compliment, just in case it was meant for me.
and here's the little bird that sits in the top of the tree. ..
the same little bird Poppy and I bought when we were dating.
Can one have too much gold? I suppose, like this picture taken without the flash...There's something about it I kinda like though.
I waste more time fiddling around with stuff...standing and staring, pulling things out, and putting things back...no wonder there's no time for baking Christmas cookies.
speaking of cookies and such, our neighbor Ann gave me a big bag of pecans a friend of her's picked up in their yard. I've been cracking and shelling these nuts since yesterday. It's a job! and rough on your hands!
moving right along :) ...
This stained glass angel was on the mantle with the cedar and deer, the carolers and Santa, but she just didn't fit in so I've moved her to a window all her own.
my angel is not as perfect as she once was. She was a gift from one of my bosses back when I was a secretary in the 90's. His wife was into making stained glass and she made some beautiful pieces.

Guess that's about it for my little post today. I appreciate your visit. Now it's back to shelling pecans.
