Decorations and Memories
Yes, the decorations are all set, the gifts are "almost" all wrapped, the menu is set, the grocery shopping mostly done and the baking is about to begin :-)
I took a few moments this morning to reflect on Christmas' past and some of the handmade decorations that I have made over the years.
The ceramic Santa has been a part of my decorations for almost 40 years....way back in the day, we would go to ceramics classes.
All of the wooden Santas were made as a series. I always particpated in a craft fair at Pasadena Church and each year I would present a new Santa. Was so much fun creating them and the best part was getting to spend an entire day with such lovely people, especially my daughter who would come to help me and also friends who came to help man my table as well.
Memories, creations and friendship.....it's a wonderful thing.
FIVE days until Christmas, but who's counting :-)
