The day after Thanksgiving, in my family, was the day to play Christmas music [pause: I am stopping for a minute to go turn on a Christmas CD] and decorate the house for the holidays.
Since getting married that has changed some. I think, perhaps, because we don’t have children so some of the little things just aren’t as fun. (I often wait to decorate until I can borrow a niece or nephew…or three or four.)
Still, I love the Christmas season. I love the music. I love the twinkle lights. (mostly the twinkle lights) and I love the smells. And! I adore the fact that people are friendly, especially in our small town.
Want a little craft?
Meg made these adorable walnut-shell candles for Thanksgiving but they will still make beautiful Christmas decorations: [here]
I think [these] mason jar decorations are so lovely. Maybe I will put some across my windowsill this year?
And aren’t [these] little boxes the darling-est things? Perhaps I will make some with tiny gifts inside for the nieces.
And of course! I will be making [these] cinnamon ornaments as soon as possible and putting them around my house (who says ornament need to just go on trees?) with strings of popcorn and cranberries…
May your weekend be full of cheer and good things and a few happy tears. xxooxx
