December

The lights have been rather haphazardly tossed onto the boughs, and I haven't summoned the energy to unpack the ornaments yet, but after declaring it a change of season here this afternoon, this is the start.

And what a good start it looks, all very festive and cosy :)

Thank you, Gary! 'Hope you're doing well.

We are about on the same page, Val. You do seem to have a better start than I, though. xo

Lisa said...

Oh, a good start it is! I only have the window lights and wreath.

Thank you, Nellie, Lisa, and Lily. It feels like I'm getting a late start this year. I haven't looked through my blog and old journals yet to see if that's the case, but it feels late for some reason. Maybe just having a cold and having Thanksgiving kind of pass in a blur make it seem that way this year.

And Lily, you should have a blog. Your comments are always so dear. Thank you. :)

Haphazard or not, they look beautiful to me. I Hope you feel better soon! Sending you lots of love and healing prayers. Hope you are soon feeling in the swing of things! xoxoxo

It's looking beautiful and festive, Val. I looked at your reply above and I agree, for some reason I feel like I'm trying to catch up, yet it's only the 6th!! I still would love some time to just savor the season with it all done and wrapped up pretty!

Dear Val ~ I love seeing the happy start to your Christmas decorating. It is sweet and colorful and now that you've begun, it will only get better.

May your holidays be filled with love, joy and peace ~ FlowerLady

P.S. I hung your ornament with picture of DH in it, and also the little heart ornament you made. I just noticed that the little frame surrounding DLH's photo has two little hearts at the top. That makes it even more special. Thank you again.

Marie, Jane, Lorraine, and Monique: Thank you all. Here's hoping we all find time soon just to sit and enjoy.

And Lorraine, I'm so touched that you treasure those little gifts. You're most welcome. ♥
