25 Days of Maple Hoo Christmas: Day 12

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we headed out to the Howell Living History Farm to check out their sleigh bell sale. The old red barn was adorned with wreaths…

… and lengths of sleigh bells were available in a variety of sizes…

… or even in individual servings.

Loose Bells

We bought a strip of eight, and hung them on the back of the front door. They jingle so cheerily whenever the door is opened — although oddly cheerily-ier when I open the door coming home from work, funny that — and they immediately lent themselves to a grand new tradition of ringing them whenever a new present is added to the pile in the living room. The only problem with them is that the front hall has such poor lighting we were having a dickens of a time photographing them.

So I took the bells outside for a photoshoot. They delivered, with lots of fierceness. Jay Manuel would have been very happy with them.

I so pleased that these will be there to be brought out the day after Thanksgiving for years and years.

    That is a very fierce, silvery photo. I STILL haven’t been able to photograph our ornaments because of the rainy deluge for the past 2 days combined with the fact that we put our tree in like the least naturally lit spot in the house. Maybe today…
