The Christmas season evokes sweet memories of childhood and cozy, comfy thoughts...
On Saturday, we ate Thanksgiving leftovers at my sister 's home and immediately after... we started planning our dinner menu for Christmas! ...this little blue antique book, "Christmas Feast" makes me smile!
About twenty years ago, my mother in law fashioned these hearts from antique fabrics for me ...I still love them.
As you pull out your decorations this season, I hope good memories of simpler days and happy times spent with family come to mind. I am so grateful for the many cozy, comfy memories of Christmas' past spent with my family. :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
