One up!

Happy Election Day!  Gosh, I have no idea what I will do when I don't get home and find my answering machine completely full of political calls!    No matter who your candidate is... GO VOTE!!!
This weekend was a very busy one!  For one thing, it was Yngwie's 21st Birthday!
We had a family gathering at a local restaurant to celebrate!  Are those Hee Haw dvd's you are asking?  Why yes they are!  He is an avid fan of the old TV show and since he missed it the first time around I found them at Amazon and he is in heaven! 

Sunday found us at yet another Birthday celebration.. this time for Yngwie and my good friend Dana.

This time we traveled about an hour to an old home that they have turned into a restaurant and they serve you family style.  For one price they put all you can eat bowls and platters of fried chicken, country ham, roast beef, biscuits, mashed potatoes, cole slaw, pintos, green beans and fried apples on the table and every time they are emptied, they fill them up again!
Absolutely delicious!

It is such a pretty setting in the Catawba Valley..

Then Sunday evening the first of the trees went up.  This one is the white one that I bought a couple of weeks ago at a yard sale for $8.00!!  It is pre lit and hinged so there is so sticking those prickly branches in the slots!
Decorated with my pixies and vintage shiny brite ornaments!

That big headed pixie is my favorite!

I am really liking this tree...

So many variations of pixies....

Some on mistletoe balls...some with stripes, some just plain red...

One up...wonder how many more to go...last year I put up 6!!!
We'll just have to wait and see!

Blessings

Linda

Well the pixie tree is just to cute. Those little critters are pretty expensive right now. I've picked up a few this summer at rummage sales. I love family style dining--sounds delicious. My 65th birthday is tomorrow. Glad you voted early, I'm going after lunch.

I got my voting done as soon as my youngest was on the bus before I hit my work. What fun pictures. Looks like a lovely way to spend the weekend celebrating. I can't wait to start digging out my vintage Christmas goodies. Your pixie white tree is just delightful.

Headed to the polls as soon as a little one boards her school bus. Hoping the wait isn't too long. Anxious to see. What an election, for sure.
Love your pixie tree. So pretty. I am so ready to decorate. I may start in a few days....or maybe closer to Thanksgiving.
