A Problem With Comments.

I would like to inform all my blogging friends that I have a problem leaving comments on your blogs.
For some reason Google won't let me.  I hope the problem is resolved soon.
I've enjoyed viewing all your beautiful Christmas decorations.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas with lots of happiness and health. Thelma xo.

O Christmas Tree


I am sharing my sister Annie's Christmas tree.
She decorated in shades of red.



I have chosen a Christmas song for
this blog,  as I share some photos of
her lovely tree. 

"O Christmas Tree"

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
How faithful are thy branches!



O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
How faithful are thy branches.


O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Green not alone in Summer time,




But in the Winter's frost and rime;


O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
How faithful are thy branches.



Tis not alone in summer's sheen,




Its boughs are broad, it's leaves are green;




It blooms for us when wild winds blow,




And earth is white with feathery snow;




A voice tells all its boughs amoung;




Of shepherds watch, and angel's song






Of holy babe in manger low,
The story of so long ago.






Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas
 filled with hope, love and Joy.

Thanks for visiting my blog. xo

Christmas Dishes

It's a few weeks until Christmas.
Time to take out the china and
 get ready for some Christmas teas. 

















I love this Sadler poinsettia pattern.





I have 2 sizes of teapots.
The larger one above and
below is a smaller one.









Vintage Cranberry Glass
(Victorian-era glass)
I use the sherbert dishes for desserts.
They are so colourful.

My sister Annie made the cone tree below, 
also the beautiful wreath of vintage baubles.
















I have been busy baking.
I baked two dark fruit cakes.
My first time ever, making fruit cakes.

My Mom used to bake them every year
 and mail them to us,  after we moved away. 












Enjoy this Blessed Christmas Season.
filled with Hope, Love and Joy.

Thanks for your visit xo.

A Birch Christmas Tree

I made some seaglass ornaments recently.

If you missed my previous blog, 
on making these ornaments, 
 click  Seaglass Ornaments.


To display them, I decorated a birch tree.





Not an easy tree to photograph.




Some closeups



The Star





Below...
Trees, an angel, and "L.O.V.E"
in seaglass language.













My sister Annie and I,
painted some scenes on 
the left over wood slices.














Annie's Creations
"Owls"
The first one, both owls are 2 beach stones painted
and glued on the wood.








Beneath the tree.
I used a brown gingham curtain
 for a tree skirt, and added some pinecones.


















 Annie also made 7 seaglass angels for the tree. 









It fits snuggly in a corner.

I hope you are enjoying this Christmas Season.
The most wonderful time of the year.
