Light ball joy1

Martha Stewart goes large…2

Convert that fallow window box into something festive10

Be inventive with a sprinkling of lights4

I adore the use of those empty summer hanging baskets into Christmas delight5

Don’t care how cold it is, this porch would get me out there with mittens and hot chocolate6

Home made ice lanterns7

Simple and chic – even on a balcony. Sp pretty. 8

The Most Beautiful Trees In The World

Trees by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

(August 1913).
