24 December 2008

the halls, they are decked

















am currently steeped in merriment and am absolutely prepared to celebrate. things that have me convinced I might be living in some sort of storybook: fireplace crackling, cookies baking, sufjan singing, children giggling, snow falling.

I'll be back soon with words and images. I'm long overdue, I know. until then, friends. merry christmas to you.

  10. it is a merry christmas, indeed. i received your record player print as a gift from my mom and i am in love with it and the precious addressing of the mailing envelope. i can't wait to hang it on the walls of my new turn of the century apartment.

    the whole package is a treasure. wonderful job. merry christmas.

  15. LOVE your collection of bottle brush trees! Did you collect these individually over time or was it one fell swoop? Beautiful photos of a well decked hall!

    Merry Christmas to you and the fam!

  31. Hey...my husband brought one of those Santa mugs into the equation. It was his from childhood. It use to be painted but all the colour rubbed off. Maybe I should finish the job.

    Happy New Year

  32. Oh! LOVE!

    Which of course begs the very question I put to fellow magpie jek when we were looking at photos of your wonderful NOT-AT-ALL-CLUTTERED home: WHERE (oh WHERE and HOW oh HOW) do you store all the loveliness when it's not out looking so magical???
