It's Looking Like Christmas
Happy December to you all. Our home is completely decorated and today I wanted to share a bit of it with you. Most of the decorations are 30+ years old and my collections have changed throughout the years. If you click on the above photo, you will see a darling Needlework & Quilt store that my dear friend and old neighbor, Barbara, gave me one year. We actually toyed with the idea of opening our own quilt store but that never materialized. This is my friend that taught me so much with quilting and gently invited me to grow; whenever this village is up I am reminded of her friendship and just how precious she is.
This year hubby set up my village; he did such a nice job and I was so thankful when I got home and didn't need to work on this. Our grands will be over tonight and I can't wait to see the expressions on the youngest ones faces. I've had this village for almost twenty years and I never tire of it.
My island is the perfect place for these two special figures.
We have very high ceilings in our kitchen and it is always a challenge to find items that don't get dwarfed by their height; this is the perfect place for my collection of snowmen.
I hope that the season is bringing you joy as you prepare for Christmas. There are so many that are hurting and you never know just how much a smile will mean to someone.
Hugs to you each today, Noreen
