that the simplest things - not the great occasions -
give off the greatest glow of happiness."
Even though I have been thinking about Christmas, planning and bringing out the decorations one by one, it still feels like the season has suddenly appeared out of nowhere! Only three weeks until the day! I love everything about Christmas - the frenzy and preparation, the company-filled evenings, the Christmas shopping and the nights when you collapse exhausted on the couch afterwards with energy enough just to sit and watch a Holiday movie. I love the food (I REALLY love the food) and the decorations, the lights on trees and houses, the happy, lingering feeling of excitement left over from so many childhood Christmases. I think Christmas for me will always be magical! Today I wanted to show you a few of my Christmas treasures. My Mum loves pale colors at Christmas - soft pink and green, pale gold, silver, cream and ivory. Those are her favorite colors and I love them too! - But I also love red at Christmas and sparkling gold! These three boxes are from my own Christmas collection and I love, love, love them- mostly because my Mum made them and gave them to me! They are absolutely gorgeous and I have them displayed in my room right now. I am joining in three blog parties today Seasonal Sunday, Sundae Scoop, and Amaze Me Monday. I have also included a new drawing inspired by my Christmas boxes!
