Some Extra Little Details

The cranberry picker and the tin basket are
on the garage walls near our back door.

Little trees and ornament balls are lined along the computer room windowsill.

The Willow Tree nativity always graces our bedroom mantel.

Decorating is more or less finished. I think I have something Christmasy in every room of the house. Last night I hung one last garland in the kids' nook in the utility room. I had some gift tags from Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazines that I had never used. The tiny tags made the laundry room a bit cheerier. Yesterday and today I was at my old school attending morning Christmas programs for grandsons Gunner and Garrett. Oh my, the memories that came flooding back as each group stood, took their places, sang or performed. Ah, Christmas will always have special wonder and awe for the little ones, but we adults must hold onto them, too, for we should know the real reason for the season.

Love the Mary E. tags...did you make them?

Hi Pam,
No, I didn't make them. They were inserts in some of the past issues of Home Companion. Gee, I miss that magazine!
