As I was looking around the house today, still not doing my shopping, I took special note of some spots where the spirit of Christmas touched my heart. This pot of gorgeous white poinsettias was a gift from loving friends when my heart was aching. I adore them, they remind me of the love of three wonderful friends who reached out with a loving touch.
This was a June birthday gift from my sister and a dear friend. Both of them went out of their way to surprise me on my birthday with a handmade cross-stitch that I had admired last Christmas at my friend's house. I smile in my heart knowing such care and thought went into this very special gift.
This little snowman use to adorn my old white fridge. When the new stainless fridge came to our house, I wondered how I would incorporate this little guy in my decorating for Christmas. He now resides in the most frequented bathroom in the house on a magnetic board I made this summer.
This is a paperback book turned Christmas tree! I made it a few weeks ago by folding and folding and folding....
This is a cross-stitch I did about 25 years ago and I still smile each year when I take it out. Hope you smile when you see it too.
I pray you have time to smile in your heart this season. I hope you can find a reason for joy. Robin
