Decorating A Little Late

Is your stocking hung by the chimney with care? It need not be a chimney, a door knob will do!

Since my rooms are so small, I decided to put a tree in an old speckled blue cooking pot. My decorations are usually the same each year.... angels, stars, bows, icicles, hearts and strands of cranberries.

 I always add a red bird or two because all trees should have birds in them. Right?

Just to emphasize the size of my rooms here is a view from the Keeping Room, looking through the library into the parlor.

The Santa is hand painted by the writer of this blog. The two ornaments were made a couple of years ago by my sweet daughter in law and my grand-daughters.

If you read my post from yesterday, you know I injured my eye while working outside. I'm still recuperating by not using my eyes with any strenuous crafting projects.

My reference to myself as Meggie One-Eye, came from a story I've read in Scottish History of the Clan MacDonald and the Clan MacLeod. If you are interested in the history of Scotland, read this story and it will tell you how it all came about. Not exactly a story to go with my Christmas decorations, but I couldn't pass this opportunity to tell you about it.

Sometime in January, I will start writing about my Clan Macpherson history.
