I snagged this photo-a-day challenge from Pamela at The Lady of the House Speaking. My first thought was that it might benefit me to participate. I'm hoping that, in order to get a photo each day, it will keep me moving toward readiness for the holidays. Christmas Eve usually finds me madly wrapping packages; I don't want to be doing that this year.
This was my view today:
My public library has a Pinterest page, and one of their recent pins features a book-lover's Christmas tree from The Decorologist. Love! I began putting mine together last night. Then I took a break. After examining it at each pass by, I disassembled it and began again.
There are children's books, antique books, much-loved favorite books, picture books, hobby books, board books, big books, small books, Little Golden Books, fairy tales, biographies, poetry, classics...
I'm quite happy with the shape now. I will add a few more 'ornaments' and some mica snow when I come across them while emptying out the closet where all the Christmas decorations are stored (I haven't started on the other decorating yet). In the meantime, it makes me smile even unfinished. Carey got home from the hunting lease today, and was duly impressed. :)
