Today was “Silver Bells in the City” in Lansing Michigan. That is the day they have a light parade and fireworks and then light the Christmas Tree in front of the State Capital Building.
Here is a post I did in 2012 all about Christmas trees and the state capital tree. https://timquilts.com/2012/11/27/michigan-capitol-christmas-tree/
Here is the tree arriving in front of the Capital
I am not one for crowds! It usually looks like this.
I live only a few blocks away so I can see the tree some other time……but I have been excited to get my own tree put up and since the state tree is up I used that as a rationalization to do one at home. ( a week earlier than I usually do it)
I have a bazillion Santa ornaments. I collect them, most of them were gifts. Here are a few.
I have room for a ten foot tree in my new bay window. I should be able to fit them all on it.
I started with the big ones.
then the small
Then Teddy had to pose
We need a quilt on the wicker chair
I think it looks pretty good
As soon as I took the pictures I unplugged the lights…..after Thanksgiving it gets plugged in again.
