A Few of My Favorite Things

DSC_0043Christmas has always been my most favorite holiday.  There’s just something about the glittering ornaments, the sparkling lights and all the festive holiday music and movies that just make me smile. While we are not getting a white Christmas this year, at our house it is still quite festive!

Collecting ornaments has become something of an adventure for me. I love to collect ornaments that are a little different, some are from Hallmark and others I find in unusual places. But when I see one that I love, well, I usually just get a collection of them. The wooden drums were found in an art store years ago. I was rummaging around for art supplies and came across them. They just screamed my name and I couldn’t resist!

Ahh, my Christmas goose! Goose has followed me around for nearly 25 years. She’s been a mainstay on every tree I’ve had as an adult. She’s so simple but I think that makes her even more adorable!

What is Christmas without a Nutcracker? I’ve always loved The Nutcracker Suite Ballet. Some day I want to see it performed live!

As we close out this holiday season, I wish for you all the best in the coming year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
