Really not exactly what I expected on Christmas morning.

I remember the days when I would get up early Christmas morning with eagerness to see what Santa had left under the Christmas tree.  

Joyful tree ...  but forgot to take pictures after Santa came.

Well, I did get up early Christmas morning, not to see what Santa had put under the Christmas tree, because I was Santa and knew what was under the tree


I was up early to start preparing food before everyone arrived.  

What I found was not exactly what I was expecting this Christmas morning ... 

As I approached the fireplace to turn on the Christmas lights, I stumbled over something on the floor. I finally reached the remote for the lights and found that our huge Christmas wreath had somehow fallen from the fireplace was laying face up on the floor with the string of lights still attached. 


Now this is a pretty tall fireplace. How it got off that very secure nail and ended face up on the floor; I will never know. 

Lucky that it only took one small snowman down with it. 

Then something was wrong with my camera and this was the best picture I got.  I was beginning to wonder what was going on. 

Is there such a thing as a "Christmas ghost"?
 I got the wreath back together as best I could and put it back in place. Some of the red birds are still misplaced but it looked presentable.

 Love my little antique wagon, bottle brush trees and snowmen.

I think this big Snowman is laughing about all the strange things that have happened this morning or maybe he is just happy that it is Christmas and he gets to come out of the closet. 
 Hope your Christmas was exciting and happy.

Happy New Year too ....

  8. Oh, dear...I am so running behind on my visiting ...
    a mystery how the wreath fell..sure glad it was still in good shape. Battery lights? I used them for the first time on my outside wreath this year and just love wires or plugin to worry about. :)

  9. Sorry to be dropping in so late but I love your Christmas. I will be on the hunt through the year to see if i can find some of the cute ideas you shared. Just love the wagon.

  10. You decorate so pretty for Christmas! Hope your dinner went well! Maybe Santa knocked the wreath off the fireplace coming down the chimney. Nancy

  11. We blame our unexplained avalanches on the cats; soemtimes they get crazy chasing each other or try to go places they shouldn't. I love hanging my pictures on a pearl headed pin or nail with a head; we've had an occasional very mild earthquake here in Naine! Your defcorations are lovely.
