It's Beginning To Look A Bit Like Christmas.....
Come on in and make yourself at home in our home for Christmas. I am just starting to get things together enough that you will hear and see Christmas in the air, at least I hope so.
I am really trying to simplify Christmas decorations this year. The old stained window out of an older NC church beside pottery and glass Christmas trees speak to me of the holy and sacred and call my spirit to prayer as much as any nativity set ever has (though I still have a nativity in another room).
More pictures coming in another post.....I still have to finish decorating my tree with oranges and candy canes. Oh, did you see the Cardinal in the wreath??
I found the huge round iron centerpiece that is shaped into pine branches and pine cones with red candles in a copper pot in the middle at a "sale" for a song. I added Magnolia branches to it this evening.
I hope you are having a good time decorating for Christmas as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the sacred birth of Christ and ultimate Love.
