holiday cheer

I've been doing a little decorating around here. It feels good. Cozy. Shiny. Sparkly.




I did end up making some of those wintery jars. I wish I'd had more materials to make more of them because it was so much fun.








We haven't put up a tree yet and I'm not sure if we will, but I do have a couple shiny trees around.






(Yes, I meant to be finished painting the cabinet in the dining room and the cedar chest in the living room before Christmas, but some things just didn't happen. I always have more ideas and plans than time. I'm ok with that. Much better than having the opposite arrangement).

Every year I have dreams of filling the house from top to bottom with flowers. I added one new little orchid on the dining room table.




Sweet. And speaking of sweet... my little flying pig got dressed up in a velvet ribbon.




Now all I need is to turn on our twinkly lights, light some candles and wait for the snow.
