These tulips took my breath away. Great masses of them in the wonderful reds and greens of Christmas. I gathered an armful. Time to continue my “slow Christmas”. My method of enjoying every little bit of the season, without pressure. These tulips would be my inspiration for dressing the living room for Christmas.
Warm wool throws on the sofas.
I rummage through my fabric samples searching for Christmas red.
Handel’s Messiah on the CD player .
Surrounded by piles of fabric I begin sewing cushions.
The colors of Christmas.
Lush silk flowers grace my desk.
There’s nothing glittery or shiny here.
It’s a room that is warm and enveloping.
A room that says come, sit, stay awhile.
A room filled with pleasant memories of Christmas past.
