The Shortest Day!



Happy Holidays, everyone!
Did you ever notice how the shortest day of the year is also one of the very busiest! I was still Christmas shopping long after dark while the wonderful  (eclipse happening NOW!) full moon rose high in the purple velvet sky.

We did get out Tree! A real tree, a spruce or fir....



At the firehouse as always.



The second batch of trees had just arrived! So they were fresh and beautiful, a fragrant blue green...


We took our Tree home...



Got it up...


And it fell over! Now it s just barely standing, like a wisp of breeze and---splat!


I hope not...I've collected my ornaments for years...


My little mechanical lighthouse topper, from a long ago Christmas shopping Sunday in Greenwich Village.....


They are all loved...




treasured memories, too....


I hope you all are enjoying the festive days...despite the busy-ness!
Have fun! Enjoy!

love
