I had some time after doing 10 loads of laundry this weekend to make this little tree. I got the directions from Martha Stewart's site. I found the tinsel pipe cleaners at a yard sale a few years ago. It really is cuter than it looks here so this will be my tree this year.
The weather was cool but good this weekend. On one of my walks around the yard I found this. Can you believe it 2 snow storms and lots of frost. It was 26 degrees last night and still it blooms.
On Friday night I had a wonderful chance to go out with a couple of friends to a church sale and dinner. A glass of wine and lots of laughs was just what the Dr ordered.
I have had some time to look through some of my books and found this Nast drawing.
While religion is the reason for the season. The magic that goes with Santa Clause is what makes the season so exciting for children. I am sad that Children seem to find out much to young now days. I think I was 10 when I got the bad news from a friend at school.
No Santa Clause! Thank God!he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virgina, nay ten times ten thousand years from now he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.
