Waiting for Ole St. Nick

I'm a little ahead of the game this year.

Usually, I am rummaging around in the closet, boxes falling on my head, in a last minute attempt to get the stockings hung with care in time for St. Nick to arrive.

But not this year.

I attribute it to all the wonderful ideas I have been coming across in blogland.

First, the mantle:

And the faerie got something different to ponder:

The stockings were hung...

With a wreath to light up the evenings in front of the fire:

And a certain kitten was quite excited this morning!

I really like the fairy with her arms full - very pretty :-)

My cat goes to town at Christmas too!

Thanks everyone!

I ended up moving the former Halloween/Thanksgiving tree in to the hearth. I stripped off the orange lights & just left the red & white. We picked up a holographic gold glitter star for the top.

Kitten hasn't found it....yet!
