We all delight in the holidays, but for many of us, it is the sparkle of the season that makes it so magical! The season shines with special decorations, ornaments, candles and trees filled with twinkle lights. A wealth of handmade decor fills the home with special moments and times shared together over the years. For many, it is a ritual of carefully unpacking collections that have been stored the past year. A time for reflection and a moment to pause and give continued thanks for the daily gifts we receive simply by being present in the moment.

Handmade ornaments fill windows, entryways, and create shadow play against a bare wall. Treasured memories of gathering and crafting, creating, stapling, and gluing are a part of many families’ holiday evenings. There is no ornament that can compare to those we have created by hand with those we love. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, many homes are filled with recollections of seasons past!

Nature comes inside in the vignettes of woodland creatures and tall Doug Firs. The outdoors beckons as we view the mountains and trees glistening with a fresh coat of snow. Evergreen boughs and cedar fragrance fill our homes and hallways and greet our company in the form of wreaths and swags with holly, rosemary, and dried seed pods tucked in.

Colorful nativity scenes from around the world are found in many households. Filling nooks above the fireplace, tucked along a windowsill, or taking center stage on the dining table or under the tree.

Sparkling glass ornaments hanging on a tree, filling a large vessel that rests atop a mirror for glistening reflections and vases brimming with tinsel and shine make the house a home and place a smile on our faces. Top that off with a vintage silver tree or a fresh snow flocked tree, strands of lights, and the collections acquired over time — merriment is sure to greet you every time you enter a room.
