Decorative art meeting

 Tomorrow I have my monthly meeting of the Decorative Artist group.  I am donating these boxes to the memory box program and they will go to St Vincent's Hosp, for women who loose a child at birth or soon after. 
We also will have a Christmas luncheon and present the winner of our lovely quilt that was won by someone that bought a ticket at the state fair in the womans bldg.  I didn't want to wait too long  before I posted  but my internet service was out until today.  I am going to have to find a new host  wish AT&T would serve us we are about a mile too far. Bummer!!!

Both of my  fellows Zeus and Spankie

Getting Ready for Christmas

 This is where I started on  my Christmas.  These are my outdoor trees which I have had to replace  some lights but this  year  you see what I found. the below picture.  We got them out in time for Thanksgiving night to light my house and yard.   Sorry I have been absent but my internet hasn't been in  service since Thanksgiving day  until about 2:00 pm this afternoon.  I will be posting because I have a bucket list of things I want to share.  I have my tree up inside not all decorated but light on it. I went out to Walmart and bought all new lights because one end of my lights didn't work. If fact I went to 2 other places and they were out of the plain white lights. 
    I heard  we may get some snow it is pretty to see come down but can be dangerous if the roads get slick. 
last year lights

This is the first of many batches of cookies and candy that I will make in the next week.  I made a Butter Toffee from the PW website that was  to die for it is on my list
