We plan on keeping things simple.

What a beautiful card. I haven't pulled out near as much as I should (even if it's to give some away!)

We also decided to take the simpler approach to our Christmas decor.
Already, there is a sense of Holiday Peace in our tiny home.
I hope the same happens for you.
Blessings...donna

I long to do simple and always start out that way, but then I get glitter in my eyes and it's whoa Nelly!

Hi, Laura ... doesn't seem like my comment "took" ... lol! was just trying to tell you that I think the card is wonderful ... and will probably be made into a gift tag for my MIL. Also love the straw ornaments .... anyone in your family Scandinavian?
hugs and have a super week!

Isn't this just one of the best parts of Christmas, Laura. I love decorating the tree and the house. I like to keep things simple too. I love your vintage Christmas card. I have a few. Why is it that the things from the past hold so much magic ?
Have fun decorating your tree. XXXX

Hello Laura

Putting up the Christmas tree is something that I always look forward to but this year we are going away to stay with family so no tree in our house this year...
Have fun decorating!
Warm wishes

Dearest Laura, I also like this kind of tree-decoration, it reminds me to my childhood when we tinkered straw-stars! And thank you very much for your vintage poscard - I think I will decorate a matchbox with this design! Hugs, Traude

Jane said...

Have fun decorating this weekend. Simple is my mantra this year as well. I plan on decorating enough to "say" Christmas but not too much that it drives me crazy getting everything out (and then knowing I have to put it all away!)

"Avec peu on peut vivre le présent à l'infini.".. it's one of my favourites; We too are doing simple this year. Even my wreath is pared down. It feels peaceful... MY TREE CAME! and now I can decorate it tonight to the gleeful caroling of my wee three! Tis the season to be jolly...

Heidi said...

Pretty, pretty, Laura! It's always so peaceful here at your site! I really appreciate it, esp. during this hectic time. Although I do love decorating for the holidays.
I've got an award for you and 52 Flea, hope you'll stop by to accept it.
Have a great weekend.
