Christmas Early or Late

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.

Awaiting the guests
Faces all aglow with Christmas magic
Packages wrapped and ready for Christmas morning

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!
