Christmas Ornaments

I have approximately 100 needlepoint Christmas ornaments which I have made through the years.  Last year, I was out of town for Christmas.  I didn't want to fool with the big tree but, I wanted to display the ornaments as I was entertaining.  My solution came from Solutions Catalog in the form of a rod iron tree.  The ornaments that didn't fit on the tree hung from the garland on the circular stairs.  This year, I did the big tree in red and silver but kept the ornaments on the rod iron tree.  After Christmas, my daughter informed me that they liked the needlepoint ornaments on the big tree better as it made it more colorful.  Lesson learned: Don't fool with tradition.

I have been blogging away and it's going no where.  Seems I somehow have two blog sites so I've been talking to myself.

Back to the topic of the Blog.  I have loaded a new movie onto my web site.  A computer tech who calls himself Ace talked me thru the process of posting the movie myself.  Ace was also a salesman as he talked me into a toll free number.  We put that on the site.  I needed a large glass of wine to recover!
