Around here, bits and pieces of Yule are being brought out, hung up and created. The snowflake-making basket is on the table, ready for anyone who needs a moment to make something pretty. Eventually, all twenty-two of our windows will be decorated with unique and personal art, like little love notes to the season.
And yesterday, Alex made these candle holders for me from a downed maple limb. Simple and lovely, and so very sweet. He knows how I like to incorporate nature into our yuletide decorating, especially if it makes use of something that came from our own garden.
If you too, are decking the halls in the coming days and weeks, welcome the quiet moments to create something simple. It will nurture you, your family and home.
