Christmas Spirit…

Today I really got in the seasonal mood by going as a volunteer to Bush House Museum, Salem’s lovely Victorian house museum.  The Christmas open house there is the 13th so the elves arrived today to decorate.  It always lifts my spirit to muck about in an historic house (other than our own) this time of year.  Here’s what happened:

The tree arrived from Gretchen and Dennis Carnaby’s

and the Parks Department was on hand to get it into the house

SAra trimmed the bottom

elves:

and Sara and Dennis tighten the stand

First the garlands of glass beads went on

the ornaments came out

there was a brief excercise break

we finished the mantles

admired the tree

ate our lunches and posed for a photo op

and took off into the sunshine to begin our own Christmas preparations.
