I'm Christmasing!

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm beginning to start my Christmas decorating! Isn't this so much fun? It just brings the childness out in us. Well, in my case, I guess the childness is always out there! :)
Anyway...I wanted to show you the little set up on the table in the den. This little drop leaf Duncan Phyfe table is my seasonal spot! So it's getting all Christmasfied!

See all these little houses? They're not mine - they belong to Mr. Precious. He just loves his little houses. There is no particular brand or set...when he sees one and he likes it - he buys it. So I wanted to honor him with this little setup. It sure did make him smile when he walked in and saw it. I'm so wonderful like that! :) You know I'm kidding.


Now these two tiny little houses are very old. Probably about 25 years. You know, the little light bulbs in these little houses have never gone out! That's a miracle!

This little house is a "Snow Village" one. He bought this and another one at a silent auction.

The lights on this little snow scene don't work anymore but he still loves it. I poked it upon a set of Christmas decorating books to raise it up some.

Here's a close up. Isn't this sweet?

Here's the other "Snow Village" from the silent auction.

Now I think this is neat! Do you recognize the house in the picture? Sure you do...it my Note Songs cottage! It actually snowed here on the island a few years back and we were in 'snow heaven'! I took my digital picture over to PhotoScape and changed it to a watercolor look! I just loved how it turned out.
What do you think? Looks like a watercolor painting, doesn't it?
So I popped it into a little frilly frame and poked some ribbon through the frills and our little Note Songs cottage joined Mr. Precious' little cottages and all was right with the world. Well, except I have boxes and boxes and garland and Christmasy stuff all over the place! :)

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my little spot of Christmas.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~ this is one of my all time favorites!

Merry Christmas, Darling

Greeting cards have all been sent
The Christmas rush is through
But I still have one wish to make
A special one for you

Merry Christmas darling
We're apart that's true
But I can dream and in my dreams
I'm Christmas-ing with you

Holidays are joyful
There's always something new
But every day's a holiday
When I'm near to you
The lights on my tree
I wish you could see
I wish it every day
Logs on the fire
Fill me with desire
To see you and to say

That I wish you Merry Christmas
Happy New Year, too
I've just one wish
On this Christmas Eve
I wish I were with you

Logs on the fire
Fill me with desire
To see you and to say
That I wish you Merry Christmas
Happy New Year, too
I've just one wish
On this Christmas Eve
I wish I were with you
I wish I were with you
