Wonderful Christmastime


Hello, Dear Ones! I told you I would try to do better on posting! So I will show you a little Christmasing. I don't have very much out so I don't feel quite dressed but it is what it is.



I couldn't find my wreath I wanted to use on the front door so I grabbed this berry wreath I've had for a few years and just made a bow and poked it on. Works for me! :)
 I am excited to show you my little Christmas tree. This is the only tree we kept from our move. I got this at Walmart a few years ago and it works fine for my little cross stitched pieces! I'm having a cross stitch Christmas - well, sort of. Let me show you a little closer peep.
 I've been stitching the ornies for a couple of years. I had some poked on a little tiny tree and then some were on a garland on the stairs in the past. This year all are on this little tree.
 I stitched three sets of eight Santies this year by the designer Prairie Schooler.
 Do you like them? I'm just loving this look.
 Fa la la la la...
 Jingle bells, jingle bells...


I poked a few balls on the tree and then poked in some ribbon and I was done. Oh, I haven't wrapped any presents yet so pretend you didn't see the boxes. And...for your viewing pleasure here are the sets of Santies I stitched this year. Aren't they just the cutest?

 Like I said, it's very simple here this year so I poked my reindeer on the dining room table (minus the leaves) and I was done!
 Hey where did Elvira come from? That little stinker! I guess she found her way out of some box in the garage and of course she wants to be center stage.


Before I go, Willow wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Wonderful Christmastime

The moon is right
The spirit's up
We're here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The party's on
The feelin's here
That only comes
This time of year

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The choir of children sing their song
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding, oh, oh

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The word is out
About the town
To lift a glass
Ah, don't look down

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The choir of children sing their song
They practiced all year long

Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong

The party's on
The spirit's up
We're here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

The moon is right
The spirit's up
We're here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time
Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

Oh, Christmas time

~ sung by Paul McCartney and Wings
