Shiny Brite Progress

The Shiny Brite tree is in progress.  I go upstairs and add a box or two of ornaments to the tree from the stash a couple of times a day.  The Sandras, Jennifers, Lillians, JoLynns, Minnies, Mildreds, Leanns, and Chances are on the tree. The Madelines, Cyndis, Raes, Tom and Lindas, Edies, Graces, Susans, Kays, Hazels and many ornaments from Far Guy will be hung soon.

Shiny Brite stash

The Stash…I have a system… and all boxes are marked with what ornamanets and who they are from…I should really take photos of each box. For now my post it notes work great!  When all the ornaments are in this big wooden box that looks a little like a coffin…there is not much room left for expansion of the collection. One by one the boxes are taken out, the ornaments put on the tree and the empty boxes stacked on the table.   Some ornaments lose their hooks…some have wobbly metal caps that need to be repaired.

Shiny Brite Christmas

A gift from blog friend Mildred last year.

I feel blessed to have very thoughtful friends who have gifted me with Shiny Brite ornaments over the years. 

Chance had a fairly good day yesterday, he enjoyed a ride to town.

  18. I am anxious to see the tree but I know it takes time. We have one more major thing to do with the village. I am thinking it may not get done now.
