Joy for the Holidays!

Some say the holidays come too quickly--that we're not done with one before the next begins...


But I say, bring on the days of sparkle and shine!...


of craft and creativity...

 

 
of harvest and happiness.


To me, the holidays represent the best of who we are, and I don't think it's ever too early to start the celebration!

 
'Tis the season! Let's enjoy it!

I always feel like I am running behind and trying to catch up during the entire holiday season. Maybe this year I will have it all together?!?!? LOL

Such celebration should be a year around thing! The warm and fuzzy feelings revolves around His Gift after all.
Enjoy every moment Friend!

Good Afternoon Nel, You are absolutely right, I love celebrating Christmas, I love the build up to Christmas and I cannot wait to get all my decorations out of the attic. As each decoration is unwrapped, it provides me with a memory of Christmases which have gone before and people I have shared Christmas with..... and my heart fills with love.
Best Wishes
Daphne

'Tis the Season indeed.
And those who say they happen too near aren't in tune with its' Spirits and Meanings.
Can you have too much blessings to be thankful for? I certainly don't think so.
Happy Thanksgiving Dear Heart. May it be full of all you mention and several more untold blessings.
Cheers,
Teresa

Oh I love the Holidays
and everything that comes with it...
yes even the late shopping I must confess part of me loves shopping right before Christmas day, maybe I get excited with all the new items and lots of people out shopping too.

I love your decorations, and even more - your artistry on the blackboard. You are very talented. :)

Such a varied collection of festive items. I especially like the elegant gold bauble in the second photo. Each year I say that I shall not buy any more baubles for the tree but then I just can't resist!
