Merriment Chain ~ Day 12 ~ Antique Bulbs

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Somehow this day has gotten away from me!!  We had a children's Christmas party for DH's work this morning and have been shopping and preparing for our Church Christmas party that is this evening. (Sweetie is in charge of putting it together).  So, we have been pre-occupied here. 
 I did want to show some pictures of the little tree I have upstairs in the family room.  I put my antique bulbs on it that were handed down to me.  They were once my Grandmother's.

This is my attempt at putting two pictures together.  See the lovely popcorn strings we made the other night?  I also waxed some icicles and grunged them up good.  The heat from the lights make them smell really yummy.

It has been a long day here and I am ready to call it a night.......just as soon as the last Christmas party is over:)

Hi sweet Steph, I got so excited when I saw your tree with the popcorn garland on because I knew it was what you all had strung the other night, turned out great. Love the tree and the ornaments are great. Hope your Christmas party went well and you are able to get some rest.
Be blessed,
Cindi
