getting started

...and so it starts
The last of my family flew out this morning and so out came the Christmas decor.
(We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with everyone of our children and their families.)

 It will take several days of staring at all the containers to get the creative juices flowing though. 
It's a pretty big mess around here,
but I like to take my time.
  Here's a few shots of things as I get them out. 
Thought I would make some little vignettes of some of the things as I decide what to do.


a few new handmade ornaments 







Bloggers-please read
I don't know if this is happening to everyone who has the comment moderation 
option on your blogs, but many of your comments aren't coming to
my e-mail which is where I usually publish and read them from 
and I wouldn't have known about it had I not read it on another blog.
Sure enough, I went to my  settings and to the comments and found that
 several of them were sitting in my 'awaiting moderation' section. I had missed
so many wonderful comments from some of you.
Most of the comments are coming through, but a few are not.
So then I started wondering  if that's why I keep getting a 'failure'  notice
on some of the comments that I'm leaving you who have comment moderation option?
Almost everyone who has it, my message comes back as failed,
but I think they may be sitting in your 'awaiting moderation' as well.
Everyone probably has already figured this out and I'm the 'late comer' to the
party as usual, but just in case you didn't know, I thought I would post it.
