Christmas Is On The Way

Good evening everyone.Today is the first day of December and it is really feeling like Christmas and looking like it too. The house is decorated and we'll be doing the tree tomorrow and Monday. I love this little lighted lamppost I got earlier this year at the WX peddlers faire. The sweet reindeer is from my childhood. I've always loved it and I'm so happy it is still with me after all these years, and see the precious glitter sign from Rosemary. Just looking at this little vignette on the desk makes me smile.
Have you heard of Andre Rieu? He is a wonderful violinist/conductor with his own orchestra and choir. They tour the world in concert sharing their beautiful music. Well, they are on a Christmas tour and preforming here tomorrow night. I've been invited to go with friends and can hardly wait. I hope they have Christmas Cd's available, if they do I plan to buy one. We will have a merry time for sure.
Thank you all for the well wishes regarding my husband's injury to his hand. He went to the doctors yesterday and the cut is healing just fine. He'll be back to normal very soon.
Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday....Linda

What a cute little vignette. Right now my house looks like a Christmas store exploded in it (it has been this way all week) - hopefully by the end of the day it will all be back in order (she says while sitting in front of the computer!)

Well I got the furniture moved so we can start to decorate the tree. I hope that it can be done today, but as hubby always does the lights I may have to wait.

Love the scene you made, a nice welcome to the season.

Your holiday vignette is lovely and old fashioned. My favorite Christmas things are often the older things.
I hope your husband will be completely better soon. Those sorts of cuts can be quite awful, I know.
Best wishes to you both!
