It is so very easy to get caught up in the “idea” of Christmas…gifts, parties, Santa, etc.! And honestly, I would like to start traditions in our home that really relate to the “reason for the season!” As I mentioned last year, our Nativity is very special. It is the first Christmas item out of the box, and the last item put back inside the box. I love how the kids play and play by rearranging the Wise Men and animals…
The entry table this year is very “full,” but I’m enjoying it…especially at night with the Christmas lights on, and the lamp off! Speaking of the lamp, I just noticed a bulb is out…what is with the lights this year?
I have this rosemary topiary oddly placed (sadly in its original plastic container) on the entry table trying to get a bit of sunlight! It was actually a prop for the Wildwood Designer Breakfast. I had it inside the silver punch bowl filled with vintage Christmas ornaments in the dining room. If you have any suggestions on how to keep this alive, please do tell! Its needles are turning brown and dropping!
Enjoy the day!
P.S. A very Happy Anniversary to my dear Handyman Husband! Although I’m “under the weather” as they say, the sun is shining, and you are definitely rays of sunshine in my life!
