It’s beginning to feel a little like Christmas

ImageLast year, I didn’t decorate for Christmas at all. I didn’t really intend to this year either … but then it snowed today, and I do love snow – growing up in South Florida without even owning a coat will do that to a girl – and it felt so cozy and wintery that I couldn’t help be just a little jolly.

So I made a Christmas tree out of tree branches, because why not?

ImageI bought this ornament years ago because I liked her sassy, independent attitude.

ImageThe red glass bauble was a Restoration Hardware find (there’s a matching clear glass one too), and I picked up the delicate glass bird last year at a local shop. That’s St. Barbara on the left – I didn’t know anything about her until I looked her up just now, only to find that her feast day was yesterday, and that she’s the patron saint of the US Navy!
