Have you seen the new chalkboard ribbon?
The ribbon that you use a piece of chalk or chalk pen to write on?
I have used it this year for wrapping packages
and placing my messages to the recipient on the ribbon.
It has taken the place of using tags on those packages.
However, my friend Sherri chose to use it in a different way.
In her tree of The Twelve Days of Christmas.
The tone is set as soon as you enter her home.
With her vast collection of Byers Choice Carolers.
I went over to help her place the ribbons on the tree.
The many strands of chalkboard ribbon had verses
of Christmas Carols written on it by her hubby.
The family room’s tree theme is the 12 Days of Christmas.
Of course the “Partridge in a Pear Tree” has the place of honor
at the top of the tree.
Then there are Four Calling Birds.
Six Geese A Laying
Seven Swans A Swimming
Now, have you noticed the really cute banners
depicting each “Day of Christmas” alongside the caroler?
Eight Maids A Milking
Ten Lords A Leaping
These Twelve Days of Christmas Tags were gifted to us
by the lovely Christy (11 Magnolia Lane).
I have a plan for mine next year that involves Department 56.
Twelve Drummers Drumming
This tree is so beautiful and so fun
and a tree of course is not just for ornaments and these carolers,
in which I have only shown half of them,
really add such a touch of whimsy and tradition to the tree.
And “Boo Boo Kitty” agrees!
Can’t believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away.
I only have a couple of things left to do and I am done!
Until tomorrow . . . Have a Merry Day!
