There is a Tree in the House!

There is a Tree in the House!

23 days to go!  The house is a holiday disaster!  We drug out all the decor tonight and currently it is in a huge pile on the den floor.  But the tree made it inside!  It’s a pretty NC grown Frasier Fur.  Still needs lights and ornaments, but it has the prettiest skirt, if I do say so myself.  You can find the pattern to knit your own, here.

Way back in the holiday closet I found this cute Advent calendar, it was already showing the 2nd, perfect timing!  My kids love counting down the days, and I thought this was a cute way to do it that didn’t involve candy.  They disagreed, so we also do one with chocolate!  It’ll be up tomorrow, and before anyone worries, I forked over the Hershey Kisses yesterday and today!

The little nutcracker was handmade by my Uncle Bob almost 30 years ago, he made an army of them. I was a little girl at the time, but he saved one for me until I got married.  It needs some fresh cotton on the front this year to keep it looking perfect.

Tomorrow I hope to tackle some crafting in addition to unwrapping more family treasures!  How’s your decorating going?

    Hi,
    Did you by chance knit your tree skirt? If so, where would I find the pattern? Thanks
