I just love all the colors of advent leading up to Christmas. They are soft, pastel, soothing. And rather than rush headlong into the Christmas decorations, I chose to decorate with mums, candles and table runner in the Advent colors. For information on Advent, see my Kerrie's Home Journal Blog.
I am still getting things out of the attic and will be bringing out all my old favorites very soon. I have felt ornaments my Mom made a very long time ago and hang them on the tree every year in her memory. One year I just had to have the "It's a wonderful Life" ornament with the picture of James Stewart and Donna Reed! I also have an ornament with my favorite rendition of The Madonna of the Poor on it. I do so love that one.
What are your favorite ornaments?
As I take them out, I will photograph and post them. Have a very nice last Day of November and then it is just 25 days until Christmas!!
