Do the days go by more quickly the closer it gets to Christmas? I think so!That's if you are already grown and have lots to things to do. If you are 5 or 6 years old, the days go very slowly waiting for the big day.
Christmas is my favorite time to really enjoy my love of religious icons and symbols. I've been looking for an older Mary statue for a while. During the trip in November (for my birthday) to Renninger's Extravaganza I was so happy to find this beautiful one. The couple who sold it to us had done a lot of buying in Europe and wasn't sure if it was from France or Belgium. Whichever, it's perfect. I love it with the antique keys, tarnished silver pot and newer silver hearts.
Sweet Husband just brought the fantastic blooming Christmas cactus in the other day. I totally forgot that I had set it outside under some other plants last year. What a great plant. Forget about it and it will be ready a year later, with no freezes, of course.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
