On the second day of December,
 the decorating F.I.N.A.L.L.Y. began!

Not a 'LOT' was accomplished, but slowly, it has begun! Our main 'double-wide' doorway between the livingroom and the computer room is now 'decked'... (with my precious breakables - high and out of harms way!!)

 As is one of the kitchen windows, with kitschy plastics (so as not to worry about breakage!!).

While I decorated, J 'played' with HIS stocking stuffers!!
  During our kitchen renovation, several years ago, we uncovered an old, unused chimney ~ that we decided to leave exposed... complete with u.g.l.y. old hole in side.  To date we have just had your basic 'winter scene' cover.  In J's stocking, My Parents' gave J some old metal signs that my Dad had cleaned out of his shop.  One of them was 'red' and just-the-right-size to screw over the ugly hole...  Soooooo that was J's project-o-the-day. Measuring, going in search of the correct size and type screws for the holes already in it, insulating, drilling, patching, cleaning ~ and I thought it was going to be so easy!

 But WELL worth it! Our kitchen colors are Red/White/Black - kinda perfect - huh?!
We didn't teach Tweed any four-letter words today, since NO ornaments were broken!!
Twas a lovely start to decorating 8-)
