I love living in a place that has four distinct seasons (please remind me that I said that when the snow comes and stays too long!). I think the autumn is my favorite. The crisp air and the brilliant colors are so invigorating after the hot and humid summer weather.
The churches in town have lovely steeples with many interesting details.
The gold dome really shines in the sunlight.
There are so many different designs of steeples. I am trying to round up my church photos for inspiration for some ornaments I'd like to make for Christmas. I am thinking of doing both flat and three dimensional ornaments. Do you make ornaments for your Christmas tree (if you put up a tree?).
I noticed that some people have started to talk about putting up their Christmas tree already - it seems way too early to me. When do you decorate for the holidays?
I think that the Christmas things should wait until after Thanksgiving. The Sunday after Thanksgiving I put the candles in the windows and then I try to bring boxes down from the attic and add a tree or mantlepiece each day until it is all up. We wait and do the live tree right before Christmas.
