sharing Christmas

I have always loved the magic of Christmas...



but this year as I've been scurrying about cleaning and decorating...




it's felt like company was coming...



but who?



Why all of you of course!  The added spring in my decorating step has been the thought of sharing it with my new blogging friends.  Sharing is truly the magic of feathering our nests for the holidays, don't you think?  Come on in...

  24. I tried to leave a new comment on your new posting about the end of November, and I was unable to.
    Something about comments being disabled by blog administrator...

    Any how, I love the post, and I love your blessings list.

    How wonderful to make a point to have an attitude of gratitude.

  26. You are one special lady! Your blog leaves me feeling like slowing down, seeing beauty in simple things, counting my blessings, and inspires me to be creative. Now how is that to encourage you to keep on blogging! Your concept of this special holiday, and your grasp on what is really important, bless my heart with each visit. I especially like your list of what you are thankful for.
