Getting there

I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Packages are mailed to points far away which is a huge job to check off my list. I am so happy to have that finished.

My last day at the Christmas Village is tomorrow. It will be bittersweet for me. I will be happy to sleep a little later, to be warm most of the day instead of freezing all day long in the tent, and to look forward to spending time with some of my family for Christmas. I will be sad to say good-by to the terrific people I work with, to miss meeting and talking with some interesting customers every day and to not be surrounded by the beautiful things at the Kathe Wohlfahrt (Okay, so this one won't be too bad since I have bought many of my favorite items and added them to my collections!)

Since I have nothing sewing to share, I thought I would show you some of my decorations/collections. I am so glad I had everything decorated before we started to set up the store. It would never have happened if I had waited.

Part of my snowman collection

Most of these were bought at the store.

Come on in and have a seat

The second fireplace mantel. So lucky that it opens on both sides. More decorating options. Just love mantels. 

The kitchen tree stays up year round. Really started when I couldn't find a place to put the tree away. Necessity is the mother of invention. 

A spot for some of the snowmen

The hutch

Waiting for Santa

Gingerbread tree in the kitchen. Definitely not good enough to eat. 

Snowmen on the landing tree

I can't wait to get back to sewing and finishing some of those many projects I started oh, so long ago. Keep an eye out. They will be here.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, magical Christmas and a Prosperous and happy New Year!
