A Few Shots Around the Tree

I've been a bit lax in blogging. Been trying out some new stuff in the studio and making a Christmas Configuration. I thought I'd share some shots of our decorations from around the house, just for fun.

Here's a cute little guy. I collect Santas and Snowmen. The Triptych is something I did a couple of years ago. It has such wonderful colors in the papers.

This is a little sled I painted a LONG time ago, but I think he's too cute.

One of my favorite ornaments in my collection.

This little guy came from my son's in-laws. Isn't he cute. He sits on the piano lid when it's down.

This is the fantastic ornament I found in the Quad Cities. One of my students told me about it in class, but they were sold out here in Peoria. Luckily I got one when we were up visiting. It plays the Hallelujah Chorus from Christmas Vacation when Clark gets the lights to finally that movie!

We have all different kinds of transportation on our tree. Bill has 2 Cruisers that hang in "remembrance" of his boating days. Miss the boat...I know he does, too.

And last, but not at all least, here is Miss Erin playing with the 6th grade band in her Christmas Concert. She's only a 4th grader, but having dad as the band director has it's perks! Free lessons!!!! Practices all the time....and I mean ALL the time. She can't walk by my piano without playing something from memory.
Not a great day for taking pictures. So I'll get some better ones maybe tomorrow. Hope the sun shines and the snow stops. Wish it was 70 degrees, too, but I don't think that's gonna happen!!!!!

Be Well.
