A final Christmas from Chicago post

I just had to share one final Christmas post.
This is the view I see when I walk outside of the office each night.
This tree is new this year - a real tree that smells divine.
It took a team of men three solid days to put all of the lights on the tree.
I think it was worth it :)
The Wrigley Building is undergoing major renovations this year and the management company put up some pretty displays to distract from the scaffoldings.
I've been working in this building for over 22 years now and when I look at it I think "home".
(Well, my work home at least...)
"Wool Crazy - December"
design by Buttermilk Basin
When I was working on Orion's stocking, this was what I really wanted to be working on :)
I finished it late last night and am pleased with the way it turned out.
I'll enjoy it for a few days before packing it away for next year...
Wishing you a Happy and Safe New Year's Eve!
Blessings, Patti

I guess I shouldn't complain about two 100 count light strings! Best wishes for a great 2013.
