Sunday Sketches - Not Bare for Long

It's time for holiday decorating and Sunday Sketches.
This little lady is  ready to "dress" this tree to the nines!
LOOK OUT, she's a lady on a mission....
How about you...
Do you have your Christmas tree up yet?
Is it decorated?
We will be decorating ours today!
(in the rain...boo hoo)
Do pop over and say hello to Sophia and my friends over here, at Sunday Sketches!

So fun! You capture the family Christmas feeling so well! Love the sketch last Tuesday with the mouse door by the tree - my children were loving that!

Thanks for stopping by! Love your sketch! We have not put our tree up yet - maybe today - the weather is setting the mood with 2" already on the ground and the big flakes are still falling!

I love decorating the tree. We did ours last weekend (in between trips to Mull!). Everything is so pretty. Hate taking it all done when all is bare and chilly looking. Lovely little sketch to celebrate this most joyous of times Heather.

Sweetness Heather, with a little imp to her too! I enjoyed your drawing; the quality of the lines and shapes are most impressive. Will you do a painting of her? She's quite lovely as she is! :)

Sophia said...

Heather, I love it. She is a doll! :) I have a little charlie brown tree up this year and a little bit of holiday decor. Not much as it is a bit harder xmas this year, but making the best of it. Hugs to you. You're always inspiring.
