The elves have been busy this week.
Scurrying around, unpacking boxes,
hanging greens and ribbons,
ornaments and garlands.
Doing their best
to get this place in shape
to ring in the holidays.
You may remember Lucky,
our three-legged horse
who is usually in the kitchen.
Right now he is under the stairs
with my grandfather's little green sled.
The entry hall table
is layered with plaid and greens
and a silver polo player that I found
while antiquing a few years back.
Will post more photos tomorrow.
It has been a labor of love
working to decorate the place this season.
Will be sad to think the next time we open
the plastic Christmas bins ---
we may very well be in a new
or temporary place next year.
It will be fine!
I truly believe that home is where the heart is.
God is good.
