We have progress on the framing! This was yesterday and it's even farther along today, just ran out of daylight to photograph. It's been hard for Jan since he asks me to approve every detail because I'm the one who is so picky.
Early this morning I set the tree in a little pot with plaster of paris. Looks like I still have a couple of wild branches that need to be trimmed. The tiny lights are not much bigger than grains of rice.
Here is a perfect little wreath, it's beginning to look a lot like a Christmas scene!
