they’re up

hanging the three stockings i made while i was pregnant with the bean (and then the one i made while pregnant with tLm) always makes me so happy. the mantle may look different each year, but these are always the same. that makes me feel good. this year i added a very full & very twinkled out garland instead of the usual display of vintage christmas items. this year, the simplicity in this room makes me feel very good too. still no tree, as we can never get it before tLm’s birthday and last weekend it was pouring. but we have a date to find a tree this sunday. i’m even thinking this year we *might* get two. i need it. we need it. this year is feeling perfect and simple and pleasant. i don’t feel rushed. i don’t feel crazy. i don’t feel like a scatter brained fool. i just feel content.

of course that all might change the week before, but for right now i’m gonna enjoy every minute of this holiday bliss i’m in.

hope you’re finding a few minutes, or days to be in the season too.

btw, i’ll have my gallery updates for JBS tomorrow ;)

    Christmas never feels like Christmas in our home until the stockings I made for my two are hung……..both made whilst I was pregnant with each of them…..! Glad to hear you’re relaxed – I’m feeling the same too, which just feels weird as, normally, at this point in December, I’d be running around like a headless chicken…..

    girl, I have been keeping it simple this year, too. I didn’t feel like messing with a tree. so, fortunately, my gma gave me a vintage ceramic tree that my great aunt had made years ago. it is perfect! that’s my tree, albeit a table-top one. hee hee. the garland and stockings look great! I hope you have been doing amazing!
