The winter cold has settled in . . .

. . . and I am settled down.

Snug as a bug in a rug.
Under a fur lined, warm and cozy, made by me, new quilt.

Can't you just feel the lusciousness?

Oh wait!  Is it the first of December?  Does that mean that the Christmas decorations have to be put up?


No more snuggling in front of the fire for me!  Off I go to lug down the boxes, untangle the lights, move furniture, scrounge for batteries so the 'fa la la la la' music can be played, put away the non-holiday knickknacks, find places for my favorite Christmas pieces and generally get into the holiday mood!

Here's my plan . . . I'll show you snippets of the old farmhouse Christmas everyday.  It may not always be pretty.  It may not always be something that is actually finished.  And it certainly may not always be something homemade.  But it will be how we celebrate the holidays here on the farm.  Gosh!  I hope I don't have to show you how we shovel snow out of the bunks or thaw out the water tanks!

At least the weather is conducive to staying inside today cuz 'baby, it's cold outside' here in Nebraska!

I'm cold just thinking about what is bound to be coming so I am going back to hunker down under the cozy fur quilt and think about my Christmas plan for awhile longer.

Happy December 1st everyone!
Let the merriment begin!

Oh... this is going to be fun!!! The decoratin' will get your blood pumping for sure! And now... I want to sit in front of the fire. Anything below 90 is considered winter here in Texas...

That is one gorgeous quilt! We got a new tree this year with the lights already attached. I know, sacrilegious right? But, I won't miss trying to find out which darn bulb is making the whole string dark!

Connie, I loved my box of goodies!! Thank you so very much! I hope to do a post about them soon. You really rocked on that candle holder. Did you have someone weld them?
