Wheelie Wednesday - The Airedale Christmas Tree

Hi everyone.  It's me, Autumn!
Our Airedale Christmas tree is up!  It's actually been up for about 3 weeks now.
Mom made all of the wooden ornaments on it and all of the felt ones. 
 We love our Airedale Christmas tree.  It's always the first one to go up and the last one to come down.  It's in our kitchen so we enjoy it LOTS!
 She made a new ornie for the tree this year.   Not sure it's going to fit on the tree, mom!
 This is the small Christmas tree in our dining room.  The round wooden ornies were made by master carver, Craig Farrow and the Dale spoon was made by mom.  The WoolieDale on the sled was made by Carol Usher
 And these are more of Carol Usher's brilliant work~

 Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - the lights are so pretty!
I sure do love the Christmas season!

See you all next Wednesday!

Ah!! So pretty. Your blog decorations are Pawsome. Love your Airedale tree too.

Oh the swans or so precious. Bet they didn't know how to act in a big pond and being able to swin together.

Now for the importnat stuff. Do you want fries with your burgers?
Hey Mitch!! I got a big red apple just for you.

Autumn, you are looking toasty warm in your winter hat and scarf! We just loooove your Aire-dale tree! Not sure if we told you this before, but Carol Usher's WoolieDales are the reason my mom learned to needlefelt! She hopes she can do it again someday! She hasn't been able to felt since my dad passed away. Must be a psycological thing!

Your Christmas trees are beautiful. We are hoping that the muzzer decides to put up ONE tree this year! She is lazy and worthless.

Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit like a room lit only by the lights of the tree... Thank you!!

What beautiful ornaments! I long to have three trees... The big one with my childhood ornaments and other keepsakes, a fire department tree in the study, and a basset-JRT tree ... somewhere.

Very festive, Autumn, very nice indeed. And it is extra special when the ornaments have such personal meaning. You have so many beautiful pieces.

Maggie and Mitch-
That is such a good idea! We have our Airedale ornaments mixed into the big tree, but we can see now that we need a special 'Airedale Tree'!!

I love your Airedale tree with all the decorations! I think Christmas at your house would be so fun.
I bet you have cookies too!
I remember last year- you had some nice smelling pot of some sort.
We looked for one at the store.
Maybe this year we will find it.
