She's been working on the Christmas decorations for the boarding house. They are very simple in 1946 - there just isn't much money to spare. Outside she's hung evergreen wreaths on each section of porch rail and on the upper story windows.
Each hall banister has an evergreen cluster tied with a bow and a glass ball ornament.
The living room has an evergreen swag decorating the mantel and a small table top tree decorated with simple glass ball ornaments and bead garland. The boarding house looks festive and ready for Christmas.
