A Little Bit of Christmas

Originally I bought this thinking it would work as an ornament tree, however when I hung some ornaments I didn't like it - neither the tree nor the ornaments showed up very well, I have to admit to being disappointed.  So I tried the little jingle bells that were bought to spruce up our door wreath and didn't make it there.  I love how it looks, and the light it sheds is a lovely warm white.
The little angel sitting under the tree is the project that Sandra from The Crafts House designed for our Tuesday Stitching Group's last visit back in November.  She looks just perfect sitting there with the warm glow of the tree above her.
And here she is a little more clearly ~ we painted, glued, shaded, stamped, blushed, beaded and twisted ~ isn't she sweet!

The LM is off on his travels again tomorrow and on Saturday GB1 is off to a medical taster course at Nottingham University ~ a whole 5 days away from home, by himself!  As I'm sure many of you have experienced with your own children he's not phased in the slightest at the prospect ~ me? I'm a wee bit apprehensive.

Sleep is calling my name ~ eventually, with barely 5 hours in the land of nod between the last couple of nights ~ I'm off, night.

Love your sweet angel tending her tree. I too bought a tree for my stitchy ornies & it didn't look good with ornies on it. Ahhh, yes, I remember when one of my sons was away for a few days....they were fine about the whole thing, me, I fretted & didn't sleep. Once a mom, always a mom.

The bells look good on the tree. Nottingham is a good university I am sure he will enjoy his visit. They grow up too quickly.

Oh, I love that tree!!!! In a way I'm glad the ornies didn't look good on it, cos it's stunning on it's own. :D The angel is darling.
