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.

up to your ears in holiday prep?
EVEN THE BUDDHA OUT BACK GETS UP TO HIS EARS during the run-up to the holidays. And now on top of everything else, there’s shoveling..

holiday greetings, from my house to yours
FROM MY HOUSE TO YOUR HOUSE: I write this week with the happiest wishes for your holiday season, but also to share a treasured framed..
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Margaret and Jack. Looking forward to
visiting you and your garden in 2014. Winter just arrived but SPRING is just around
the corner. Elaine
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May the visions dancing in your heads be veggies and songbirds!
Merry Christmas, Margaret! FB has been limiting your posts and this is the first I’ve seen in ages, and I just don’t seem to sit down and read e-mail anymore. ANYWAY, I have a new website to follow and total wreath envy. Thank you for all the good you bring to the world!
This site is such a great source of useful and interesting information for me. It’s a gift I enjoy all year. Thanks Margaret.
Love receiving your gardening information and all the other ideas you share. Blessings during the holidays and in the new year.
Merry Christmas to Margaret and family (including Jack and the frog boys, of course.) And happy holidays to all the AWaytoGardenphiles like me.
Merry Christmas to you and Jack!
A Merry Christmas to you both, Margaret and Jack! It’s been another one of “those” years…am hoping for something to crow about in 2014, and I wish you the same!
Joyful Christmas and a Wonderful New Year to you and Jack!
Your site, and the way you share knowledge and goodness is a major resource of inspiration throughout the year. Thank you for this gift.
All the best
Wishing you and Jack well this Christmas and New Year, Margaret. Thanks for a grand year of stories.
Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years to you, Margaret. Thank you for the wonderful information and inspiration all year long. All the best.
Happy New Year! Another year you have made my world a better place to live in.
Merry Christmas to you and the Happiest of New Years!
Thank you for so much solid information and wonderful writing
LOVE LOVE LOVE those vintage ornament wreaths, but all of our beloved treasures go on the tree!
Best wishes for a beautiful New Year, Margaret.
Many thanks for all you give on this website, Margaret. I look forward to each new posting.
Merry Christmas! I love those “Shiny Brite” wreaths. I plan to make one next year in fact. Very cool. Hope your holidays were merry and bright too. Aren’t you glad the days are longer? I definitely am.~~Dee
Welcome, Marnie. Nice to see you.
Hi, Dee. And yes: Days are longer! A couple of minutes a day of improvement=very welcome. Hooray.
To all of you: we so appreciate your comments, now and all the time. Thanks for the very nice good wishes.
Hi Margaret and Jack – between this blog and your fabulous book “and I shall have some peace there” (here??) I feel like I know you.
I was so upset when your King Bullfrog got eaten! Ah, the savagery of the wild. Thank goodness it wasn’t Jack that did that! Did you ever figure out where the 5 bullfrogs went? How is the one left behind doing? The green frogs treating her ok? (Whatever that kind of treatment looks like… here madam, you may have this fly..) I’m hoping to find out what happend with your fox and coyote urine “treatment” and how Herb is doing… Also, if those poor birds keep slamming into your window, can’t you hang some wind chimes or strings suspended out from the window…or put something on the window so they can SEE it?? Just sayin’
But I am loving your book! This weekend: email and Margaret’s book. Period. ! Looking forward to Garden Parables – of which you have many in “peace” also I have noticed, BTW. : -))
Thanks for many enjoyable hours……….
