C'est Noel...

Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance.  It may weave a spell of nostalgia.  Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.  ~Augusta E. Rundel

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.
~Christina Rossetti

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays...wishing all peace & joy!

the beauty of a white Christmas...C'est Noel!

Christmas Eve is a week away...hopefully we are all gathered, decorated, baked, wrapped and ready to enjoy this magical season! I love the tradition of red & green at the Holidays, in the last few years I have fallen in love with an "all things white" Christmas. I love paperwhites, an all white dining table and white roses with pine, I have it in almost every room, the contrast of the fragile beauty of the rose with the strength of fragrant pine is one of my fave combination & smells wonderful! Sharing with you my fave white Christmas ideas...
