I would like to thank my friend Katie from Let’s Add Sprinkles for organizing our Cozy at Christmas Blog Tour.
Today eight bloggers are sharing their homes, you will find all the links listed at the end of this post.
For 18 years and then some, I grew up with a white Christmas, and I just must say that there is nothing quite as magical as fluffy, frosty snow for Christmas – at any age.
I imagine that many of you have either read or have heard the story
“The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow gave a luster of midday to objects below,”
is a true statement.
You see in my little cozy bedroom growing up I had two corner windows and on Christmas Eve I would fitfully turn a multitude of times under a cumbersome stack of multi-colored handmade quilts which rested heavily upon my child sized frame.
There were even times that I felt certain that the weight of those quilts will surely cause me to smother.
Just to be sure that didn’t happen I would always make certain that my nose was well above the folded edges of those quilts…
The moonbeams and magic of Christmas Eve combined with intriguing shadows on the frosty snow that time of year fueled my young imagination with the anticipation of sleigh bells ringing in the crystal clear cold night.
Even now I am able to reflect upon these special memories and dreams of Christmas with such fondness that my heart overflows with wonder and joy over the magic of Christmas both at the North Pole and in Bethlehem.
My Mother did a fantastic job of combining the pure magic of the season with the sacred observance of the Holy birth and I too have always incorporated that sense of wonder and thankfulness in mine.
Thank you for joining me today as I share with you my Dreaming of a White Christmas Home Tour.
A snow-flocked Christmas Tree combined with gold and silver tones of baubles, ribbon and stars sets the tone for our White Christmas in our dining room.
Along the way various trinkets of past and present add to my White Christmas Dining table vignette.
My new motto in life no matter what the season….thank you to Tina.
As long as we share, love and Believe our world stays on track.
Silver snowbirds perch for a moment or two on my Grandmother’s China cabinet.
Finding Joy in the midst of the hurrying and scurrying.
Never forgetting the Story of Bethlehem and that Jesus is truly the reason for the season.
Celebrating this season with our young grandson Wyatt!
