~Christmas Decorating, Just A Little Bit

The days leading up to Christmas are so precious, and yet somehow I over booked, over worked, over whatever it all. To slow down and try to enjoy each day, I quickly (is that slowing down?) took a few more pictures. I really didn't do as much this year. I wanted less stuff but it didn't really make it less messy to just get everything out to try to pare it down. Oh well.....maybe next year. I am determined to have less stuff.



It's a Snowflake year! I have lots of them everywhere, silver or white mostly. I've loved them for a long time and started collecting some beautiful white porcelain ones around 1984. I've been looking for a potter who makes them ever since, but no luck. If you ever know of any handmade ones, please let me know. But they might be too difficult to ship. I've broken 2 or 3 of the ones I had.


I hope all of you are able to take some time to slow down and really be in the moment of this Holyday Season.
(( Rhoda, I thought that last picture was big. I'll try to do better. :) ))

  2. I love that snowflake in the last picture. What detail. . . and. . . it looks very fragile.
