Christmas All Around the House

Today, finally, is baking day. Black walnut cookies are in the oven, and Christmas carols are on the radio. All around the house, it's almost Christmas:

Stocking and quilted ornaments made by my friend Suzy, the gifted seamstress.

In the kitchen window, red and clear lights brighten a rainy window view.

On the porch, a small tree adds a festive touch. The blue bottles are wintering out of the weather--just in case they should get water in them and freeze.

Santa waves a greeting from the old washstand.

And bright lights warm the rooms.

Back to the cookies and baking!

Beautiful! One of the many Christmas treasures I discovered after moving was the stocking my former sister in law did in needlepoint. The family, hand-made items are the best.

I agree, Mary. I especially like the last photo, though-it looks great as my background on my computer!

Loved this peek into your Christmas festivities. And the post below-Good Will to All-is what it should all be about.
