This is last year's picture, and that's our tree right behind us. Hopefully we can get ole' Bob (Bob's Tree Farm) to take another picture this year. Bob is the coolest guy. He restores classic cars and he always lets us into his shop so we can see his latest project. He gives me huge bouquets of Holly from his Holly tree that is as big as a house. He also has the fattest dog I've ever seen! Bob taught us about the Nordman Fir tree, which in my book is the best Christmas tree ever. You can have it in your house for a month and it will still be as fresh as the day you brought it home. It retains water like no other tree, and doesn't lose hardly any needles! Bob says the song "Oh Tannenbaum" was written about the Nordman Fir, and I like to believe it's true, just because I think it's cool. This will be our third year getting a Nordman from Bob...I love tradition.

December is here...Time for peppermint jewelry!
This is a simple bracelet made with my peppermint beads.
Here's one with dangles, I think it's a fun bracelet.
I have lots of designs...bracelets, earrings and necklaces. I'll share more throughout the month. I would like to blog more this month, and talk more about what's meaningful to me this time of year. Until then, happy December, my friends!
