The Tree! The Tree!

This morning I uncovered the elegant Harbor Light.

And now, as quasi-promised, the decorated tree:

Don't forget the top!

I have holiday decor in other rooms, too. The weekend before last, in fact, I put the tablecloth that my mother cross-stitched years ago on the table. I don't usually use it, but it's so pretty!

The following morning, I brought in the newspaper, and stood looking at the (white) tablecloth. It seemed kind of a shame to use it if I was just going to get it newsprint-y. Almost seems deliberate, if you know what I mean. I guess it's more of an event piece than every day.

I took it off, and this weekend I put the vinyl one on instead. It's festive, if not nearly as lovely or personal. You can't have everything, at least most days.

Finally, this has nothing to do with Christmas, but how can I resist?

Baby face...

Why don't you get a clear plastic table cloth to go over the one your mom did. Protects it and still let's you get some use out of it.
