One of our first stops this weekend was to stop by and visit Carole of Maynard Greenhouse whose Christmas shop was full of treasure!
Carole transformed this place into a magical Christmas wonderland.... ...take a look!
We each left with a bag full of treasure...I had angel wings, ribbons, a tiny white bird, glass votives, a delicate bird's nest and a sparkly musical note ornament. What fun to bring it all home and incorporate my new finds into my Christmas decor!
Tomorrow I will share some photos of our visit to Deanna's wonderful shop Gather.... ...and then the open house at Cathy's of The Cheswick Company and finally the Essex Holiday House Tour!
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.
