All Through the House Again

Good evening! Just a few pictures to add to my previous post, pictures of Christmas in my little beach house.

Every year I look at the fresh cut tree and say, "Isn't this really the strangest custom? To drag a huge real tree into our house?"

But then I open the boxes of ornaments and it's like seeing old friends, each greeted with cries of pleasure and Oh do you remember..?s and love and memories just pour out of the old boxes and onto the tree.

Always on the backdoor knob, a Cape Cod Santa fishing float / folk art.

Pick up trucks and trees have been very popular in the wooly quilting world this year. I've had this old tin truck, made of canned veggie tins, for many years.

Here is my blog friend Kelley's real life version, isn't it adorable!~ BIG truck, teeny tiny tree. So cute.

And my entrance hall...

More / slightly better pix of my Noah's Ark.

And Mo in his new, handmade sweater from Mel! Bumble Bee Mo. The yarn is reflective for late night walks in the dark of winter. Love it.

Hope you're having fun too!
