Merry Christmas Eve

I popped out early this morning to run a couple of last minute errands.  On my way home, not far from our house, I saw the most amazing thing.  At first I didn’t believe what I was seeing, so I turned around and went back for a second look.  In one of the trees in a somewhat-wooded area between a nearby hospital and some apartment buildings was this beautiful bald eagle.  He was so unbelievably large.  He just sat there, quietly, majestically, peacefully while the other birds chirped and flitted around in the trees.  I see bald eagles quite often as I cross over the Minnesota River on my way to work, but I’ve never seen one this close to home.  It was amazing.



I decorate our home quite simply at Christmastime; I just don’t have a lot of extra time to do much more.  I bought this “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree at Michael’s this year and I think it is perfect for displaying some of the smaller tatted ornaments I have collected over the years.  Some were made by the Mad Tatter, some were made by others.


I just think it’s the perfect tree for these beautiful white lacey ornaments!

What a great experience, seeing a Bald Eagle close up.
Your little CB tree is so cute, and it fits the ornaments nicely, a great idea.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
