Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Countdown to Christmas -13 Days to Go

When we downsized I did let go of many Christmas decorations.  This collection of Santa and Father Christmas was not something I could part with.  They grace one shelf of the bookcase this month.

I love your Santas! Each one is so different.

What a special collection, Marcia! I understand completely. :) My collection of folk art Santas is a very special part of every Christmas. Each one holds a precious memory ~ a gift from a friend or collected in my travels. They are the first thing I unpack every Christmas season and the last thing I put away. To me, they symbolize LOVE. Sending warm hugs today, Marcia! ♡Dawn@Petals.Paper.SimpleThymes

Adorable.... I still love all of my Christmas collections... Not sure what I'll be able to get rid of whenever we downsize... Christmas is my favorite time of the year--and I have A LOT of 'stuff'.... All have such great memories.

Do you still love your 'new home'? Do you miss your beautiful home? Seems as if you and hubby have made the adjustment very well... Getting away from all of the yardwork would be GOOD... We've had a rough Fall here this year due to the drought and wildfires... It hasn't been JOYFUL at all!!!! ha

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy
