slowly but surely the decorating has begun here at my house.
The Christmas music is on full blast and I am unpacking the decorations.
Nothing to show yet except for my little paperwhite bulbs.
Wondering if they will stay on the mantle or if they will be
put on the window sill?
I won't know until I get everything out and start placing things around.
Where to put the Nativity?
Where to put the tree?
Where the iron angle from the garden will sit?
Where to put what and how to hang the greens?
I love the greens added around the little pots of paperwhites and
the pop of red from the cranberries.
These are all BIG decisions for my little mind!
I love this process of making Christmas a special time in our home and in
I love taking my time and giving it much thought.
My decorating is simple now compared to what I used to do when
the children were small.
Everything had to sparkle and glow when my family was young.
I loved it!
But now I go for a more simple look.
Pretty in a different way.
It's the BAKING I go all out for now....
and I can't start THAT until THIS is done!!!
So I had better get back at it!
Wishing you all a wonderful day full of the magic that the season brings!
