“What is Christmas?
It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.
It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal.”
~Agnes M. Pahro
This time of year can go by so quickly because there is so much to do and think about.
The second week of December is already almost over!
This is why in my house we decorate early so that every ornament, bauble, and ribbon can be enjoyed to the utmost.
This year we found balls wound in pearls.
Every year my Mother manages to create something new and extraordinarily beautiful from some small discovery we make in the array of Christmas decorations available everywhere.
I actually had to give in and let my Mum have one of her Christmas presents early – a little ribbonwork brooch from Lambs and Ivy that was perfect for this project. Of course she was thrilled! (Thank you Dana!)
We used some of the fabulous french trims we have been collecting over the past few months.
Decorating with my Mum is one of my favorite things about Christmas.
Nobody can make a home as soft and beautiful as my Mum.
