Dear December. . . you got away from me this year. With Thanksgiving falling late, I had one less week in a very busy month to decorate, shop and bake. . .
Even the Christmas cards are late to be mailed this year!
I have to confess that my Potting Shed was treated like the red-headed stepchild this December.
The first Christmas she hasn’t been merry and bright . . .
And decked with fresh greenery.
Instead receiving some bright and shiny ornaments for Christmas, she got a lump of coal.
Feathering her nest is usually on the top of my list of things to do in December. . .
And counting down the days with an advent calendar to wing my way through December is a favorite activity I missed this year. . .
December just flew by too quickly!
It takes the better part of a week and foraging for a boatload of greenery to deck the halls, both inside and out. . .
A labor of love, but one that gives me a great deal of joy when it’s done.
So this year I’m sharing the Potting Shed ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’. . .
And I’m sprinkling in some greenery and Christmas cheer from previous Decembers.
I promised I’d make it up to her and spruce her up early next December. . .
And give her a refresh this winter. . .
So the birds to have a place to roost and enjoy some treats.
M is for ‘many’ things left to do before Christmas. . .
Are you still making a list and checking it twice or are all your packages and shopping wrapped up so you can enjoy some Merry Nesting?
