Christmas 2008

Tis the season to be jolly and that is what I'm trying to be but unfortunately I have developed one of my famous sinus infections (I guess I should have seen if coming when I had the ear infection a few weeks ago.)

Anyway I did get my tree up before I started feeling terrible and here is a collage of pictures I took of the tree. (The latest update of Picasa 3 has the coolest collage feature that I have been playing around with.)

I have been collecting ornaments for many years now and I love putting them out each year. One of my favorite ornaments to collect is the Santa figures. I tend to gravitate toward the wooden ones - kind of folk art types but also the more modern ones if I like them.

It's back to the couch for a mid morning nap and if I get the energy later today I may put out more decorations. But for now I'll sit back with a cup of tea and enjoy my tree!

I love the collage look. =) Your ornaments are just terrific and make a truly beautiful tree.

Karen, I waited all day yesterday for you to post to your blog, and what a reward! Love it, especially since we won't be here Xmas, and we decided to not put up a tree. If I need to see one, I'll just look at yours.

Thanks for sharing, and I hope you start feeling better.

Your tree is lovely, Karen. Sorry to hear you're feeling crummy; this is a bad time of year to be sick, not that there's a good one. Take care, and feel better real soon.
