We were blessed by the number of people that toured our home on Sunday as part of the Christmas Tour of Homes in Oakland, Nebraska... and by all of you who are touring it in cyberspace though our blog. Thank you.
I may have the house decorated for Christmas by December 2nd, but that doesn't mean I will have the gifts wrapped until December 23rd! In my shoes? How about wrapping white toile netting around the bottom of the tree... it doesn't look empty when you do.
How can red and white pack such a powerful punch? Try your own collection of "red things".
Sometimes one simple thing is all you need to say 'Merry Christmas'.
If new stockings seem like an overwhelming expense, how about mittens? It is what our grand kids are getting at Grandma & Grandpa's.
Sometimes 'what you have' makes the best decoration. The Guest Room is featuring my girls' childhood teddy bears with parts of a treasured advent calendar. In a former life I was a needlework designer for The Cross Eyed Cricket and these advent pillows bring back warm memories... and are meant to communicate MERRY CHRISTMAS to YOU...
