~ Better Late than Never ~

Hello blog buds...well I'm finally getting around to posting this year's Christmas decorating pics, better late than never, right?  I wasn't able to decorate quite as much this year because the week before Thanksgiving I had a fairly bad fall...took a tumble in a parking lot, OUCH!!...sprained my right ankle and tore up both knees, my left one was especially busted up and bloody, not to mention the body soreness that followed and today I'm still sore and my left knee joint is really bothering me, but forge on we must!  Here are this year's pics:

 coffee table bowl:
pinkeeps by Jenny of Country Rustic Primitives and Barbara of Turkey Hollow Folk Art...the bowl and runner are available in my shoppe!
