It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Fluffy snow piled all around,
Bundled people shopping bound,
Christmas carols fill the air,
Rustle, bustle everywhere.
Here a greeting, there a smile.
Happy faces all the while,
Winter specter, snow and ice,
Kitchen fragrance, pungent spice,
Jingling bells, gay laughter, too,
Old traditions mixed with new:
Church bells chiming will foretell
The age-old story we know well.
Most of all, and greatest worth,
Honouring the Christ Child's birth. - Mary A Barnard

Hello everyone! This blog is getting neglected  these days; sorry about that! I have been doing the ABC's of Christmas on my main blog, Rose Chintz Cottage, so that is where all my efforts are going these days. 

I would like to share with you my tree this year. The ribbon I did differently and I usually change up the mantel every year too.

I have family coming home for Christmas this year and I'm excited about that but there is so much to do. Lots of baking left to do and just preparing for the big day. You all know what I mean. 

However, amidst all this busyness, it's important to remember why we're celebrating. Without His coming, there would be no Christmas. So, take a deep breath and remember to thank Him for His gift to us. Be sure to set aside some time each day for a cup of tea and listen to some Christmas music. Or watch a Hallmark Christmas movie. It's the most wonderful time of the year and the Holidays come but once a year so let's enjoy it all; the magic, the music, the memories.

I will try to post a little more on here but meanwhile, I invite you to join me at Rose Chintz Cottage for the ABC's of Christmas. Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas and may the New Year bring many blessings your way! Hugs to you all!

Keeping Christmas in my heart all year round ~ Sandi
