White Christmas


This year my "oh no this is too much" limit is reached quite quickly.
I crave just the simple wintery coolness.





The decoration on the trea are old cake forms where I glued pictures of my children in it.
(Several years ago)

Yesterday the children and I did do some crafting, amongst other things these cones made of old music sheets.


I had to help them to roll them, but they had fun decorating them.
They look sweet filled with a little greenery hung on a door handle.

I believe that this is the year of "simpler is better". Alot of gals out there in blogland are decluttering, simplifying, and creating a calm, serene home for their families. Your tree looks so cute! I plunked my little tree in a bucket this year too, and I just love it! :)
