My December Daily

For several years I've done the December Daily.
 I've tried several formats, but my favorite is making my own book
 with mat board covers and card stock pages. 

 I don't always write something each day...... I usually have a photograph if nothing else .... I don't stress about it and I often do more than one day at a time.

Merry Christmas! It's almost here!

ThE TrEe!

Those are jingle bell (rusty) picks
that I stuck in the top.
I couldn't resist the 2013 Anthropologie
ornament below.

   I also finally used those button garlands I ordered from Ballard a few years ago!

Are you finished decorating?

The Mantle

Second Christmas in this house....

Still figuring out what works for the holidays...

You know that I definitely have enough Christmas stuff!
But I couldn't resist this sparkly garland.... it's like a bunch of hard glitter butterflies...

Keep forgetting to put a candle in the Angel's holder.... Poor thing.... maybe soon....
She is one of my favorite things.
I bought her in the 80's.
My friend Virginia got one, too.
We have always kicked ourselves because we only got one apiece.
I'm sure that was all we thought we could afford.

Had a few friends over the other night...
It was cold for South Texas...
A few hardy ones wandered out to the fire pit to roast marshmallows.
And to talk....
Nothing like a roaring fire to ignite conversation....

Why is that?

December Blossoms!

I was in the backyard today exclaiming over how much is blooming!
On my way back in, I noticed two other pots with blooms that I didn't take photos of!
what are the chances those lemons make it?
Happy December!
