Sitting by the Fire

Above the mantle of our fireplace hangs a special quilt.
I am not sure where it came from, but when my mom moved out of her home it was sitting there.
The softness of years gone by are hanging here this year.
Added to the quilt are flags to represent a snowy day.
They are very easy to make and I love seeing them here.
Softly we step into the holiday season.
I hold my cup of tea and a special piece of cake,
listening to the music of the season.

Have a special day and take some time just to reflect and sip a favorite
cup of tea, hot chocolate, or coffee.
Sending warm blessings to you today!

Oh, but this softness, this stillness was a sweet respite during busy days just now. I love your quilt and the garland accent. Your fireside is so cozy and inviting... the perfect tea time spot. Husband & I took Sunday to completely set aside all the to-do/must-do, and just made it a day purely for enjoyment and relaxation. And there was much drinking of tea and hot chocolate! My to-do list today maybe longer, but it was worth it yesterday! ;o) Happy Days, Marilyn ((HUGS))
