I’ve been quiet lately. I started looking at my collection of Christmas items in early December and decided I needed to create a setting to use them instead of storing them. It was a project that quickly got out of hand.
I had a started wall house that was assembled and painted on the outside but completely bare on the inside. It had been sitting idle for sometime with the original plans abandoned.
I played house with the various Christmas pieces, arranging them in multiple ways. Finally a story developed to fit the arrangement. At that point there was a direction and focus to what was placed where.
It is finally a stage that is presentable. There is a few things to add at a latter date, such as the mouse family celebrating Christmas in the attic. Currently they are in only in my imagination.
So I am either late or very early for Christmas depending on your point of view. I am an optimist so I AM EARLY and my Christmas treasures gathered over time have a home!
