Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Starting to Decorate Blue Sky Farm


Today I started the decorating.. I have much to do but here is a peak at work in progress. I will be cutting some boughs this week, Placing them in and around the tub. (If you magnify the photo you can see I have  5 ducks waiting to be "Gussied up")  and then dragging out the lights.. Many strings to be strung and decisions as to what will get trimmed. I love Christmas. It is my favorite time of the year. When I was a child my dad would  hang lights along the roof top and each year he would add a few more here & there. in trees, and along the driveway. Even though my children and grandchildren are away, and its just Buster Clay & me I have to do it.. I must have a tree and all the trimmings..next will come the tree and inside will be something different this year.. I think my tree changes each year depending on my mood and what inspiration I glean from magazines & store fronts.. I have my Charming Chicks coming on Dec 11th for our MJ Farm Girl Christmas Gathering so I must get  busy 
So stay tuned this is a true work in progress....

Can't wait to see the progress and finished product of your decorating on Blue Sky Farm!

The picture stayed small so it's hard to see details. Maybe you can make the next ones larger?

Have a happy week.......maybe this year we can stop on our way home and say "hi".......hmmmm......how many years have I been saying this?

Oh, didn't you have another dog?

Snow sure adds to the decor. After you are done you can come to my house and finish mine. I did get a start yesterday, but boy do I get frustrated with hanging the lights outside. Again where is that hunk?? Oh to sneak down and join in the MJF gals gathering!!! You all have fun!
