Good morning from a very chilly Atlanta!! I am just popping in to let y’all know that Mother has painted a limited number of these beautiful oyster shell Christmas ornaments and they are now in the (nearly defunct) Dixie Delights Shop! She also has some of her jewelry pieces listed.
I can’t wait to get mine for my tree. My sweet neighbor helped me decorate it this year and it made me so happy to hear HER get excited every time she unwrapped one that my mom has made. There are lots from over the years. <3
As far as the rest of my Christmas prep, the house has thankfully been decorated for weeks. We have shopped for the man we adopt through the church each year and wrapped all of his gifts – only because I got the drop off date wrong and thought it was Nov 30. And, I’ve mailed my Christmas cards. (Although a stack was returned yesterday because I forgot to put a stamp on them. oy!) Other than that, I’ve done nothing. Not one gift purchased. Not one cookie baked. No teacher gifts. No class party planned. No hostess gifts for the five events on our calendar. The elf hasn’t even arrived. (Yet, I have cookies and such sitting in my office that Sister was a doll to pick up for them.) It’s time to start knocking this stuff out!! Where do you stand on holiday prep??
