It is hard to believe how fast the days are going by. I started to decorate for Christmas two weeks ago but I kept stopping and so today I finally finished the tree and the house. Now to write out the Christmas cards which seem to shrink each year as I lose older relatives and family friends. Yet I have my Glee Christmas playing loud and I love the way everywhere you go the lights shine out and you can look into people's windows as you walk by in the night and see their beautiful trees.
I had to put a doll on my desk to start off the holiday season and so I picked one of my Monograms. Unfortunately I cannot remember her name as they don't have real names, mostly descriptions and adjectives and they are harder to remember then proper names. I did not order this last batch of holiday Monograms as I feel this one fits into the same category. She is wearing a copy of the same gown that Smoldering, from last year's FR convention, had but this one is a deep indigo blue with a soft dusty rose bodice and a train. Her carriage is so elegant and she is carrying the wreath from one of the Holiday Dynamite girls.
