Hello there! Happy Sunday. :) Sorry for the late post, but it would seem that a little tummy bug was not wanting me to post this morning. I had to remind it that I always post on Sundays and thankfully it understood and allowed me to post.
Other the bug, Christmas sock knitting has started. This yarn while not holiday themed makes me think of all the beautiful Christmas lights that are starting to appear everywhere. While I tend to get bothered when Thanksgiving is passed over...I can't deny that when the decorations start coming out around town, the holiday fever hits.
Ornaments are being knit for friends and family, all while holiday songs are playing in the background. Isn't that the way it should be?
Packages and holiday cards are starting to arrive. This lovely package was a gift from a very dear friend, Meghan. Reminding me that I need to get on the ball with my Christmas card mailings. I am vowing not to let this year go without sending out greetings to all my loved ones. Have you started your mailings?
Today as I was decorating my home, I was thinking about all the past holiday celebrations and some of my favorites. One tradition in particular was when I was small. My parents, sister and I would attend Midnight mass on Christmas Eve. After the service and once home, me and sis would get to open one gift. It was always new pajamas. To this day there is something about new pajamas each year that makes my heart swell. Do you have a particular holiday tradition or memory to share? I love hearing about all the wonderful things.
A few weeks back we had a generous giveaway from Stash Tea and it is now time to announce the winners!
I should have never visited the Stash site. So many lovely tea items. I love the Josephine mugs and the dragon cloud cup -- I bet it feels wonderful in the hands. The Jasmine blossom green tea seems to call my name! Lots going on my wish list!
at this time of year how could anything be better than that pumpkin???
Congratulations! I will be in contact with you shortly to get your details for mailing. Thank you everyone for entering and sharing that love for Stash Tea.
Wishing you the best day today and as always a song for you!
