joyful simplicities for december
really deck the halls. spread holiday cheer throughout your entire home
with seasonal decorations, no matter what holiday you celebrate.
evergreens, beautiful flowering plants, candles, tiny lights, and natural decoration
don't have to be associated with any one holiday unless you make them so.
when you make a special effort to create beauty in your home,
you set the stage for festivity, an authentic quality of
Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, and Kwanzaa.
wanted to share the room.
in the bauble in my header photo.
i brought things out.
earlier this year.
than i usually do.
and i have changed things up.
from where i usually put them.
not sure what is going on with me.
as i sit here...
that it may be.
that comes from deep within.
of Christmas' past.
of my childhood.
and my heart is warmed.
and a smile forms.
over the sides of my coffee cup.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
