WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS, Jack and I do, though we are by no means dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh over here. More stuck in the mud this week (which I suppose will now freeze up into a charming washboard that makes driving this dirt road, shall we say, very interesting). The upcycled ornament wreath above is by Pam Kueber, the queen of Retro Renovation [dot] com and a mad thrifter, crafter and all-round pal. It was her handmade holiday gift hot-glued just for me, and that’s the idea, isn’t it? To share bright moments, up close and personal. May your holiday positively gleam, and be loaded with light.
