Hello my friends!
It's the final week of Christmas countdown
here at my house it all seems to be going way too fast!
So I thought I'd pop in here
share some of my favorite
I just love this potpourri recipe
it's an instant way to put
holiday in the air!
It's also a quick way to bring back
cozy Christmas feelings of yesteryear!
I love to garnish my plants
with a quick dose of finishing holiday color.
Last year it was all red glass balls
I have gone more natural
finished all my plants with red apples!
then adding water
makes for the most beautiful
Massing these is almost an instant
sprinkle them around for Christmas ambiance!
I also love to keep greens in vases
for any impromptu gatherings!
They bring instant holiday style to any
table or occasion!
Even filling vases with greens
can make for a festive look
for not much money!
But my very favorite holiday tip this year
is to remember
"life (or the holiday) doesn't have to be perfect
to be wonderful!
With so much pressure coming to do up the holidays
we can forget
the holidays can be a double edged sword for many of us.
What our holidays look like change
just as life and families do.
It's so important to celebrate the good that we do have.
So I am here to remind us all
that grace and self compassion
are also important aspects of a loving memorable holiday.
To truly give to others
we need to make sure
we first respect our own needs
We nourish others best from the overflow of our own heart.
It is my wish for us all
that we can slow down
truly savor the small moments
of the holidays …
because in the end
they are always the most important memories.
Wishing you all the most wonderful
no matter where in the world you are….
or what holidays speak to your heart.
I send you love.
As always my dear friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
find your holiday meaning.
