GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

♫ ♪ it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ♪ ♫

i've been contemplating a dilemma for a couple of weeks now.

for anyone reading this who doesn't already know, we have 2 connecting rooms that are our living and family rooms. the first is more like a multi-purpose room. someday it may be converted to a dining room, but in the meantime it's our computer, piano, school and play room. then there's our tv room which with the sofa, futon, a big recliner, a glider rocker and a couple end tables is full up with furniture. thus, my dilemma. where are we going to put our Christmas tree this year?

yesterday, i finally decided to make room for it. our school table got cleaned off, folded up, and moved to the hallway where it's now taking a vacation. {we've been using the kitchen table for school lately anyways.} i then shifted our electric piano so it's up against the wall instead of at an angle to the corner. the futon got moved from the tv room to the multi-purpose room. it's in basically the place where the school table had been and is facing the piano. it actually works nicely, since you can sit and look out the window and watch the birds if you want.

that left a nice big open space in the tv room for our tree.

so we set it up and decorated it.

it finally feels like Christmastime around here!


  1. I knew you would figure out something. Looks very nice. Looks like Christmas. :)

  2. Looks great. Our tree is very small since we don't have any place for a larger one, but it gets the job done. I end up hanging larger ornaments on the plant hangers in the living room and dining room since they are too big for our tree.
