I like a little bit of Christmas all over the place. You know what I mean, right? Those bright spots around your house that lift your spirits and remind you that this is a very special time of year.
On occasion, I still stop and look at these pictures of my baby girls, when they were baby girls, and think how lucky I was to have them, how lucky I am to have them.
This is a shot from the dining room window. I found this little bird in the local nursery gift shop, yet another bright spot. He might stay all winter, though.
Last night we were at a neighborhood gathering, and the wallpaper conversation came up.
Someone said, "Wallpaper is over."
I said, "No, it isn't over."
I have never ever regretted this wallpaper.
"What about resale?"they asked.
"I don't care," I said.
And I really don't care. This wallpaper makes me happy!
This Christmas tree makes me happy, too, though there's an entire section at the top that is without lights. Not a huge section, just a clump. I was going to try and fix that. But I decided I didn't really care about this, either.
It still looks all snowy outside. Winter looks prettier in the snow.
And so far I have managed not to kill this guy.
Have a blessed and happy week.
