In this between time I have been mulling over a
simply beautiful Christmas this year at Frippery Farmhouse.
Our whole extended family gathered under our roof.
A house full of love and laughter.
Oh yes... and snow!
A day late but still wonderful fluffy snow.
Now is the cozy break between Christmas and the New Year.
Have you taken down the decorations or do you like to enjoy them a while longer?
At Frippery Farmhouse we celebrate the traditional 12 days of Christmas
and savor the sparkle until Epiphany.
We have even been known to host a Twelfth Night party in lieu of a New Years bash.
Everyone tends to be free that night...
Has you desire for a fresh, clutter free space overcome you?
Are you dismantling as we speak?
Or do you hesitate to say goodbye to the color and cheer?
Frippery Farmhouse will stayed dressed in her party clothes for a while yet.
Then she will slowly pack away her jewels,
one trinket at a time.
Fondly saying farewell until next year to each shiny bauble.
One or two sparkly pieces may even stay for a bit
to brighten the January days.
Of course by January 6th, things do not look as fresh as when we began decking the halls.
But these decorations with which we so lovingly dress our holidays,
always say "Welcome home."
Hope your Christmas was filled with peace and joy,
your holiday season was memorable,
and your New Year will be filled with bright days, P.
