Red is invigorating and inviting....a festive color!
and oh so fun!
Found this red vintage little girl's wool coat at the thrift store years ago...
...had to have it!
This sweet little Ellie in a silver pitcher is by Cathy Pendleton of The Cheswick Company.
I will be heading to Connecticut this weekend for fun and games with the girls....
...a visit to Cathy's annual open house will be a highlight!
Red berries and cinnamon sticks!
This old Santa is just a wee bit scary....
....but look, his beard is a fake...he can't be the real Santa!
Our Christmas stockings from when we were kids!
This darling woodland creature was made by Lori Ann Corelis....
You can see more of her incredible work here...
Red is energizing and makes me happy...especially Christmasy reds!
...if only I could harness that energy!
Wishing you all lots of red Christmas cheer and lots of energy as we prepare for the holidays!
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.
