An "Early" Christmas Tree

This is kind of a funny little post...

Some of you may recall that I spent five wonderful weeks at my Mom's
house back in Canada this fall.  We haven't spent a Christmas together
for 14 years now and when we get together we always seem to get up
to a caper or two.  (*_*)  Seeing as how we were going to be miles apart
at Christmas, we decided to decorate one of her trees together while I was
still there.  Yes, it was the middle of October, but so what!  LOL!   We did
up her little white tree in her's away from prying eyes and from
people who might overwise think we were totally insane to have a tree up at
that time of the year.  As it was, my brother walked up the stairs while we
were trying to put it up incognito...he thought we were really ridiculous I'm sure!

My Mom's bedroom set is beautiful and it involves probably the caper of all time.
I purchased it for her at JCPenney here in Utah, stored it for awhile and then
my husband and I loaded it all up in the back of our truck (bed, two night
stands, a huge dresser and a matching mirror) and hauled it all the way to her
house 1000 miles away across the border into Canada.  I must tell you that I
think the border guard thought we were insane at this point.  But it was worth
it, it's so lovely and she had been looking for something special for a long time.

My Mom's house is so pretty and rather Victorian in her decor.
I love her Victorian settee by her comfy and pretty!

It helps to have a cosy fireplace to curl up beside in the winter!

So there you have it, a tree in October, decorated with love by a
Mother and daughter who are miles apart at Christmas...
