january third, 2012......
I am sitting & writing this post tonight in a very tidy house. The tree has been taken down & the ornaments all tucked away for next year. All the decorations have been carefully packed & every sign of Christmas is gone.
Then I sat down & while going over photos on-line realized I had taken these pretty pictures that I had been to busy at the time to post? So I am sharing them now....
Christmas came & went a bit too quickly once again....I have never quite figured out how to make those magical weeks after Thanksgiving slow down...really slow down, you know, like when you were a child. Happily though I did capture a few glimpses of just how magical the house looked & how enchanting it felt.
Every year I basically use the same decorations,...but try & arrange them in different & fresh ways.....& this year was no exception. There were lots of little sparkly fairy lights, candy canes & holly everywhere & our angel watching over it all at the top of the tree.
The presents were wrapped in tiny prints & checks.... & the color "red" made quite the appearance!
It all came together beautifully....& we loved it all once again....memories were made....
And as I do appreciate the clean, somewhat bare look of our home tonight....I cannot help but be enchanted by..."the last lovely days of 2011".
happy, happy New Year.......Love, heidi
