We have a tradition in our family. Every year, since the first year that my husband and I have been together, we put up our tree on the first weekend after Thanksgiving. It is always the same. We throw on the movie Elf, pour ourselves some egg nog and decorate for the holidays. This year, we are in a new home and there has been a little debate as to which window the tree will look best in front of. For me the view from the outside is just as important as the view from within.
I adore owls. I have since I was a little girl. My home is filled with owl knicks knacks and wall hangings. My daughter inherited her mother’s love. Her favorite blanket just happens to be a beautiful owl blanket that a sweet friend made for her for my baby shower.
We have been reading a lot of books lately. On Sunday, I felt like we read about a hundred of them, though in actuality it was probable only about 5 or 6. In one of the books or magazines that we read together, there was a lovely illustration of children looking out the window. I love crafts in windows & I thought that a simple winter scene with the silhouette of children looking out would be a cute one.
This weekend we went to a local farm. We walked through the corn maze, picked pumpkins and went on a hay ride.
