Gifts are bought and the tree is up. Photos to come; since our tree is short, I put a felt hat in the shape of a "Viking" horned helmet on the top to be funny. The cats aren't showing as much interest in it as I'd feared; Ivan is only interested in the cheap shiny ball ornaments that I bought to fill in places where I needed something but didn't want to use a nice ornament, like the back of the tree. He's only tipped it over once. Lalat seems appreciative, but not to the point of wanting to play with it.

I also discovered we have no less than four stockings. One of them is in blue felt with penguins on it. I like this stocking because it was sent in a care package to us-as-a-herd in Bagram, and they were nice stockings with useful things in them. It is hanging under the mantelpiece with two other stockings.

In other household news, I have decided to take a free class on painting at Home Depot and experiment in the master bathroom. I've selected sea-green as the theme, and intend to put up pictures of fish and seashells and things like that. Today at ReStore (the shop operated as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity) I picked up a used medicine chest that I can adapt to the theme. The master bath currently has no medicine chest, so it'll go up before the paint does. I'm looking forward to this.

That bathroom design sounds really cool! Take pictures when you're finished with it. :)

A local radio station conducted a contest to determine who had the funkiest tree topper. One woman had a George Washington doll. I think your Viking hat topper would have been a smashing entry.

I have a seahorse notecard and a lighthouse notecard that I keep meaning to frame and hang in my bathroom for a light seaside theme, too. I'm sure your bathroom is going to look great.
