More of the season
It is the little touches that make the holiday for me these days. I bought this basket to hang over the front door.
I used to fill these shelves with Christmas dishes and Santas. Obviously, I have cut way back. Small touches.
What doesn’t show up in a picture is the smell of the tree. I have supplemented that with oil of balsam fir spritzed on cotton balls and tucked here and there. And next week there will be the added fragrance of baking.
We will be heading to sunny Florida just before Christmas, but until then it is certainly great to have the small touches of color and light to counter the grey skies and early darkness.
