I owe you a nice big post, but in the meantime, I'll share some bits of Holiday cheer that I happened to photograph yesterday. How we typically decorate for Christmas is to do a few spots over the top. We buy a tree (which you can see the star on the top of it hiding where it's wired to the ceiling) and hang this winter dreams banner from the ceiling near it. I'll show you more of our tree when we finish it. Here's a few ornaments from the tree starting with a Wendy Addison heart.
I just bought this bird ornament at my visit to Paris to the Moon. I wish I remembered the name of the artist, but it's not written on the back. It's not mass produced.
I also bought this frame there, which I think is Wendy Addison's line for Midwest Importers, which nestles a Tara photo of my not so wee-ones.
And here's the front door. The wreath from last year lost it's Two Turtle Dove Swag and gained another wreath to the back, so that's a bottle-brush wreath on top of a wire star wreath on top of a silver tinsel wreath. There's some fresh garland on the door frame, with some glittery branches tucked in the middle. See what I mean about a few spots over the top? Plain and simple mixed with glittery abundance.
