This Christmas season has been interesting to say the Least! Between having a new kitten and being sick for a couple of weeks,,,,I had to re-think things. And I didn't "do" my usual "Winter White" Christmas,although I love that too!! I always have such a hard time, picking and choosing colors....themes, etc. Because I love it all!!! If you've seen my previous posts/picks...I went less traditional this year,,,,,with lots of Aquas,,,pinks, lighter greens,,,,etc. So, although I am NOT doing a big tree this year,,,,,,these colors carried threw.........
My Garland,,,,,,in the big old arch I have in this old house........
I hung a lot of those old pastel/Vintage ornies on my Garland, in the archway or my living/dine room!
So far,,,,,Kitten free!!!
And? I have this Angel, we named her Emma several years back.......
I kept her simple this year....just a Vintage feathered crown from one of my Besties, Deb Bock,,,,,and a trio of Rosaries..........
I'm truly only putting out those things that I really love this year. Those things that evoke memories and spirit. Between being sick for several weeks and THIS,,,,,,,,
Not to mention, I'll only be spending Christmas with one son. We're going to have breakfast together and then go see "Les Mis."
That will be my Christmas. My family is small and scattered. I just feel blessed that I get to do one of my favorite things,,,,,share one of my favorite things with my youngest. We both love music,,,,,of all sorts.
It's not about gifts. It's about spending time and creating memories with those you love. I'm blessed to have lots of friends that fill the gaps in my family. I'm sure I'll post at least once more, before Christmas,,but KNOW that I love, appreciate,enjoy, cherish you all,,,,,,,and wish you the BEST for the Holidays and the New Year!!!
Hugs and a "Sparkly" Bus!
