I was inspired by Persian Guy to decorate for Christmas.

Unpack the ornament, unpack the holder, hang the ornament on the holder. Whew, I'm spent!

Is 9am too early for a martini? :)

Please be careful. I dont want to have to take you to the hospital later today Jim.

By the by. I love the piece of furniture you have in the background. The wood looks spectacular. Is it art nouveau or art deco? I often misidentify one for the other.

LOL, thanks Adam, not to worry, I will pace myself! :)

The piece in the background is Deco, if I remember correctly, it is 1930's English. I was never a fan of antiques, growing up in a house FULL of them, but I could resist the grain of the wood.

Right after I bought it, I saw the exact piece (photographed in the store where I bought it) in one of my mom's architecture mags. Freaky!

What a gorgeous room! If your other ornaments are similar to this lovely one, then I'd like to wish you loads of fun hanging up your balls this afternoon. If not, then take pictures, and I'll think of something else perverted to say.

Well you've certainly outdone yourself mister. And no, 9am is not too early for a martini. Always remember the motto, "it's noon somewhere!" :)

LOL, thanks Brian. I'm almost rested up from my busy morning so I may get to another ball-hangin' this afternoon. Think of it, there will be two, I would expect some interesting comments ;)

Thanks Jimbo, I knew you would appreciate all of my hard work (all 30 seconds). It took almost an hour over coffee to decide where to place the ornament. Whew, such pressure, lol.

Wise words, it IS noon somewhere even at 9 am ... I will put this into pratice tomorrow :)
