Home for Christmas

Celebrating Christmas in my home brings out
the Santa's from another time, poinsettia's, golden balls,

more color and delight in every corner.
And because we celebrate the birth of a special baby,
there must be a creche tucked into an alcove.

Touches of red, teapots and china to charm.

Sparkly enchantments.
Even an old window hung with JOY.
The sled is holding the beginnings of small gifts arriving at the door.
Our orchid will be blooming just in time for the celebration.
Wishing each of you, my dear friends, a very special season
of celebration, love, peace, and JOY.
There is yet to share the Christmas tree and the little village so fair.
Come again another day and twinkling lights will touch your heart.

In the meantime, savor each moment, delight in the day!

PS - I still haven't heard from Jo for the second give away
last week, so tomorrow will be the day I will draw another name
from those that left a comment on the give-away post.

Oh Marilyn, it's so pretty! What a fabulous Santa collection you have and I love all the pretty red mixed in with your cabinet. And that wonderful display with the glass balls. And the sled. And the window frame and...everything! Oh, what a joyful place you have to celebrate the holiday!
