~~The Twelve Days of Christmas~~

Throughout the season, I am going to showcase some of my favorite things about Christmas..... one at a time. Every year we all look forward to bringing out treasures that are used for such a short time.  It sparks old memories of special people in our past, and special moments of days gone by.  Whether it is the sparkle of snowy white objects mixed with the tarnished vintage silver treasures, or the scent of fragrant evergreen mixed with rich deep red berries.  I think everyone has their favorites, and as a part of the "Twelve Days of Christmas"  these are a few of my favorite things!

A family Christmas tradition we have, is to scout the countryside for wild Rose Hips, Osage Oranges and  Thistle , since the rich golds, deep reds and earth browns blend perfectly with the fragrant mixed evergreens.  Filling various outdoor containers on all of our porches always gets comments from friends and neighbors.  This year we encorporated some angels to the mix.  It looks wonderful even after the holidays are over,  and since most of the items are  "found objects", the price is certainly right!
