some photos…

here are a few things I’ve been up to this weekend…(stayed up waaaaaaaaaaaaay too late last night, but have documentation for how I spent that time) :D

here’s the overall (albeit fuzzy) view:

and the tree :)

my grandmother had a tradition – a huge collection of Santas she collected over the years… which spilled out from on top of her mantel into her living room… (but mostly on the mantel). So, after she passed, and after I had a home of my own, I began my own Santa collection…it makes me smile to think of her when i look at them :)

and a friend gave this to me a while ago – this is the first time I’ve used it. a beautiful little Victorian house w/ a light inside… isn’t it precious? Might be hard to see, but there’s snow on the top! and a little movable swing on the front porch… so sweet.

in a few days I’ll be able to start my ornaments… they’re painted glass – this year (thanks to my helpful IT-like friends & Flickr, i’ll be able to share images with you!)
Have a great start to your weeks ahead!
