The old train of mine and my older brother's looks good under the tree. It is a good time to dig them out and dust them off from being in their box for 10 months. My brother and I received the train set back in 1957. Santa wrote both of our names on the paper wrapped box secured with string.
I am sharing the "before" photo again to give you a frame of reference as to has far this tree was has come now.
I am reminded of one of our neighbors who wold put up a crystal tree each year. One year, she spent a whole day putting all those glass decorations on with all the white sparkly lights and then took them all back off again. She thought she could do a better job. I bet I could make this look better too but I am not going to do that. I won't take this down until I am done with the Christmas season. I might throw the tree away though if doesn't shape up and stand up straight.
While watching the birds swarming the feeder, a rabbit wandered into the backyard pen to check out the seed that was falling on the ground. The rabbit was really more concerned about grooming itself though as he was stroking his ears and his fur.
Thank your for stopping by today. I wish you all to have a great day.
