From our happy home Through the world we roam One week in all the year, Making winter spring With the joy we bring For Christmas-tide is here.   Now the eastern star Shines from afar To light the poorest home; Hearts warmer grow, Gifts freely flow, For Christmas-tide has come.   Now gay trees rise Before young eyes, Abloom with tempting cheer; Blithe voices sing, And blithe bells ring, For Christmas-tide is here.   Oh, happy chime, Oh, Blessed time, That draws us all so near: “Welcome, dear day”, All creatures say, For Christmas-tide is here.
From The Short Story A Christmas Dream, And How It Came True

Mantle Asymmetrical Display

Welcome to our December Newsletter

Here we are already to December and the end of another year!.. This year, I’m just not ready. The fall has been so wonderful it’s hard to say goodbye but that is probably my sentiment every year.
Last month I shared with you about “Making the Most of your Mantle”. Above is an example of the asymmetrical type.

Scroll down to read an article about “Last minute decorating”/ Wreaths and Centerpieces and the next one is on family games to play at your Holiday get together. We do a version of the Dirty Santa one as we play bingo. The younger kids get to open a gift each time someone wins. Of course, they have several very small gifts to open but seem to enjoy the fun of it.

The beautiful art pieces below are by a company called Paragon.The first piece is an iron sculptured wall art that measures 39H x 35 W x 11D. The second piece is a hand painted oil that measures 20H x 70 W. Either of the these pieces would make a great Christmas gift! Call for details 651-402-5554
