there are so many reasons to love the holiday season.
the lights popping up everywhere are making this girl happy. driving home from a couple hours west of here last night i was amazed at all the outdoor lighting already shining from roof tops and fences in rural areas. i wonder if our unseasonably warm weather didn't get Christmas lovers out in droves, hanging lights for all of us to enjoy? our tree is standing proudly in our living room, naked as the day it was born (or sprouted)...but smelling yummy and waiting for me to light it up. i even have some gifts bought.
*last year i coerced my girl into doing all my wrapping, hmmmm~ that was GENIUS. i may be creative, but wrapping more than about 2 gifts makes me cranky. wonder what i can bribe her with this year?
well, enough about me- : )
here is the first of several posts of things i've found and LOVE that are all about Christmas.
i love them!!!!
i love boxwood, love, love, love it! i even tried planting a whole hedge of it by my
front sidewalk....it didn't even make it through one winter- guess i should just try a
wreath like this for my front door. speaking of front doors- i also am going to paint ours
a different color in the spring. i mean it. remind me if i forget will you? spring is a long way off.
them in these great quantities, i'd fill big clear glass vessels with them and line them up on my piano!
well that's what i've got for you
tonight, stay tuned for more as we turn the
calendar to december. the month goes so
fast that even if you're not excited yet-
go ahead~ get EXCITED with me will you?
