The Light of the World is Born!

"For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
~Isaiah 9:6

The day before the night before Christmas, I was frantically working on Orion's stocking trying to complete it in time. I decided to watch my favorite Christmas movie - "Take Peace - A Corgi Cottage Christmas with Tasha Tudor". While watching and busily stitching, I suddenly remembered that I had purchased a lovely antique 1949 Tasha Tudor Christmas Card from Lana Manis of Honeysuckle Lane this past year. Even though it was 1 am and the stocking wasn't finished, I had to look for that card right that moment! Has that ever happened to you? Luckily I found it after about a 15 minute search and the stocking was completed soon after :) 

I thought my card was a sweet addition to this display of antique bottle brush trees and antique Putz sheep.

I will keep it out all winter long and come spring will have it framed for next year...
Orion was pleased with his stocking and in a split second had all of his presents torn open along with a few of ours ;) He loves to open gifts!
I have a weak spot for poinsettias and find myself buying several each year.
 Maybe it comes from being the granddaughter and great-granddaughter of florists. (Read more here.)
As soon as I can catch my breath, I have an idea of a special something that I would like to create for a giveaway.
But it will need to wait for another day.
Time to finish the clean-up from our 25 dinner guests and then back to work tomorrow.
I hope that your Christmas was filled with peace, joy and hope.
I am so blessed.
Merry Christmas!
Blessings, Patti
