Finally, something new!

 A nasty virus found me the day after Thanksgiving. I've been down ever since. I haven't been able to decorate my house for Christmas yet but I was strong enough to give Harriet a hand with hers. I also made up a tray of craft supplies ('cause you can only spend so much time sleeping no matter how sick you are!) and pulled up pictures of Red Flyer sleds on my laptop and went to work. I think the resulting sled is really nice. I had originally propped a popsicle stick sled that I found in the round robin swap box against the porch wall. Even after some modifications, though, it still looked too fake. That's what led to this project.
 The living room looks quite festive for the holidays. The stockings are hung and there's even a stack of gifts under the tree table.
 The kitchen calendar has been turned to December and there's a lovely Christmas print cloth on the table. You can see that Harriet and Sandy have already been baking, too. There's a gingerbread house, fruitcake and Christmas cupcakes.
