December 1st... About the Celebration...

Some decorating done...  Even the mantle (above) isn't fully done, but it looks colorful and bright with Faerie Lights. 

The collection of hand-carved Santas...  Which my husband has made, over the years.  Wooden decorations are nice.  They won't break, over the packed-away-time.  :-)

I love sweet old fashioned Christmas illustrations!

This post is sparse.  I've been composing another "Sometimes I Write" Page entry, though.  On the topic of "The Celebration Of This Time Of Year"...

You mantle is bright and cheerful. It will help chase away the winter blahs that come with less sunlight.
I love the hand carved santas. Even better when done by a loved one.
When I was very young my neighbor from Germany was a carver. I treasured the times we were able to see what he made. It was always "look, don't touch."

Later I hope to post some of my vintage children's and holiday book illustrations. I do appreciate them so much more than newer versions.
