I know that our Lord did not ask me for my opinion about the holidays but I really wish we had a little more time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It just seems that gobble, gobble, gobble turns into ho, ho, ho too quick.
Speaking of Thanksgiving I do hope that you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our family surely did. We had lots of people, lots of food and lots of laughter.
And just so you know....our babies are never too old to sit in your lap!
Despite the busyness of the holidays I did manage to stop at a yard sale and so glad that I did....
As soon as I spotted this plate I knew I
needed wanted it.
She had four of these darling Johnson Brothers plates and a bowl.
And I grabbed the 4 plates with matching bowl for $10. If you are familiar with Johnson Brothers then you know I got a deal.
Grabbed this cutie too. She meshes in quite well with my blue and white dishes on my baker's rack.
But now it's onto Christmas.
I love hearing how others celebrate holidays and all the other good stuff that goes along with the Christmas season.
Share me with if you would....
1: Live or artificial Christmas tree for you?
2: Traditional Christmas colors or more modern?
3: What is one thing that you truly enjoy doing for yourself over the holiday season?
Well the one thing I enjoyed just yesterday was enjoying a cuppa tea in my beautiful tea cup from Celestina on a beautiful tray gifted by a friend with a few peanut butter cookies!
Matter of fact I wish I had a cookie now!
For years we would take our girls to the Christmas Tree Farm and cut down a live tree. We would ride in the back of of trailer sipping on hot chocolate while other years we just simply walked around the farm trying to pick out that perfect tree. But with my girls being grown and gone (well they are right down the road from me....) we no longer do a live tree and haven't in years.
Answer to my 2nd question...I am your traditional Christmas decor girl. Nothing against modern at all but for me...I love the red, greens, golds and silver. I actually have a friend that decorates with pink and silver and I am here to tell you that it's simply beautiful! I may need to do a pink and silver little tiny tree....shh...don't tell my husband though! LOL!
And the one thing that I love doing (besides watching Hallmark movies) is sitting in my living room with a cup of coffee, all of my Christmas decor burning brightly, in total quietness. No music, no television, just lights and coffee. That may sound boring to some...for me...REFLECTION!
With the Christmas season approaching us may we remember to
"Not get so caught up in all the 'hoopdala' that we forget the reason we celebrate".
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
