Enjoying Christmas Calm...
From that very first time of walking in the front door of this home before we even considered buying it I envisioned a Christmas tree right in this circular area. This is the first time in 18 years my vision has come to be. Thank you Mr. C for this beautiful gift.
The amazing quilt was created and handcrafted by a dear friend years ago and it and she are very special treasures.
The Angel topper I have had for decades and I am so happy she fits her new tree.
This is a very special and very old Santa ornament. Mr. C has had this since his childhood. Now that is quite the feat as he is not sentimental and doesn't save anything. For a man who claims not to enjoy Christmas it is a miracle that this very old and delicate Santa has survived.
I read and savor every Christmas card and letter we receive. Now this shelf is overflowing with love and care.
Here are more cards and letters surrounding a Santa/Wizard I hand crafted a couple of years ago. He is greeting guests as they arrive. I am surprisingly managing to enjoy Christmas Calm. Just Mr. C and I and some friends getting together during the days leading to Christmas. Then it will be a quiet day of JOY and LOVE. Mr. C and I have decided to bake and ice cookies on Christmas Day. That is what he wants and that is what we shall do. Until then I am eating all the fudge Mr. C made. Maybe he will make another batch and this time we will share it with neighbors and friends...I hope.
May you be making wonderful memories this year. Merry Christmas to All...
