Christmas Around the House


Capturing Christmas around the house was so much fun this year; here are a few more images I can't resist sharing.



Since I have no place to put her, this gal is part of the family.



An Indian sari gift from my husband.



Lemon cypress, a favorite Christmas treat. More on this later.



The thrill of an amaryllis opening a little more each day.



My sister's lovely cookie gifts all the way from Oregon.



Fairy doll, knitted by Pauli, for daughter Oneita.



Favorite gift wrap- more on this later too.



This exquistie plum is actually a Christmas cracker! No I don't care what's inside, I won't open it. This handmade beauty comes from Tail of the Yak in Berkeley. 


Once I knew only darkness and stillness . . . my life without past or future . . . but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.
