The Christmas tree is up and the guest areas of the house are decked out in holiday finery.

The wreaths are up outside, the coach and pole lamps have been touched with red velvet bows, and the small tree is up. This year I painted paper mâché stars white and added white glitter for just a little sparkle. The snow that fell last night looks like frosting on the branches just outside the front door.

The Christmas cards are almost finished and I’m in a baking mood again.

There’s still time to leave a message for me on the post about the purse giveaway. The name of the lucky winner will be drawn Friday at noon EST in the US. I’ll then contact the winner for her (or his) snail mail address.

Also, let me know if you are interested in the wire hearts or metal tree cutouts for rust-dyeing fabric. They will probably not be part of the Trusty Rusty line of products. The supplier is not willing to commit to consistent quantity, price, or supply. So, when they’re gone; they’re gone!
