simple gifts...



my little tree




reminds me to
slow down
and
feel the
Christmas spirit
in my heart









to savor the sweetness of this
wonderful time of year
and to feel blessed beyond measure

hope you can do the same
sending you oodles of blessings for these preChristmas days

Hello my sweet friend! Koralee, your tree is so adorable! I LOVE how you placed it in front of the chalkboard and drew a star and the lovely, "Let your Light Shine." Thank you, sweetie, for always letting your light shine and for being such a sweet friend and constant source of joy and inspiration! The beauty and sweetness you share makes me happy! I can only imagine what it is like in your beautiful home! Happy home for certain! The ornaments are lovely and the little fabric squares too! Yes, we must slow down and feel the Christmas spirit in our hearts and savor the sweetness! I feel blessed beyond measure! I love your blue chair and the gorgeous vignette you put in it. I purchased some beautiful Christmas flowers, but could not find any pink carnations, so I am enjoying yours, love! Sending you and your dear ones oodles of blessings too! Love you, Paula xoxox
