Tall & Handsome and I both are hopeless when it comes to the holidays. The decorations, the music, the kitschy movies, the food, and the festivities.
I’m normally a “gonzo” Christmas decorator. All in good taste of course…
Well, the last few years T & H and I have had very little opportunity to partake in our shared love of Christmas gone wild… Many times our things were packed up and unavailable…we were living out of state…just a whole cornucopia of things stopping us.
Well, not this year!
Despite my warning him that his back would never heal, T & H insisted on decorating a few days ago…and we did.
It now looks like Christmas done “Bev lite”, but it still looks like Santa’s elves were busy spreading cheer and we are enjoying it!
I’ll share a few things with you including some of my dated ornaments I’ve been collecting since 1974. I also try and pick up a Christmas ornaments as a souvenir when ever I take a trip…just to have a reminder of that place and time.
And, so…Home for Christmas!

Tomorrow and the next day I’ll try and share some more…some of my favorite things…ornaments and Christmas quilts.
Merry Christmas to all…
