i fear i have completely lost my blogging mojo if i ever did indeed have it!
just as i don't have time to write
(and am shirking my nighttime etsy duties to tap this out),
i'm quite sure you don't have time to read!
but maybe you chose to spend your one free moment today catching up with me?
thank you. :)
it's just a tidbit and
a few photos today.
all my in-real-life peoples can tell you that i've
always been a Christmas-tree-the-day-after-thanksgiving
kind of girl.
but we didn't cut our tree down until this week.
and my main floor looks like a glittery, sparkly bomb went off.
i truly only have two bins of Christmas decorations but it's the
undecorating that slows me down.
THIS is what keeps me productive at night....
every night as of late.
and it tastes so much better, don't you know, with a flea market silver spoon. :)
the tree farm where we go every year is kind of pricey and the frasiers have been sorry-lookin' the past two years but it's hard to change tradition. and i don't want to! the kids love the marshmallows with a bit of hot chocolate (wonder WHO they inherited that from??) and the farm dogs and getting to use the saw. the trees were still short and expensive but it was another deposit in their memory bank. "remember that place we always got our Christmas trees from? the one with all the marshmallows you could eat?!"
on a completely unrelated note, all i really want to do lately is to be stitching or knitting or digging into my Bible or baking or reading aloud. hmmm, i think i may have mentioned that in my last post.
i stumbled upon these two stitchery patterns below on etsy. they make me laugh. maybe you'll find me stitching away in the cold of january.
this downton abbey embroidery pattern pdf makes me smile.
i'd love to sit and stitch away on these fun downton samplers. pdf pattern here.
ok, i'm off to deal with the mess downstairs. to turn the Christmas jumble into Advent peace.
in my heart most of all.
blessings to you today.
