Merry and Bright

Our home is finally decorated for Chrismas

Everything feels warmly lit, snug, and safe.

New lights that look charmingly old.  

We wait in awe and wonder for the silent night. The holy night.

Wishing everyone a blessed final week of this Advent season.

    Lovely, Shawn. The new/old lights look awesome!
    Real tree?

    • Shawn says:

      No, an artificial one we bought several years ago at Molbak’s. It seemed crazy expensive at the time (it’s tiny, just 4 ft tall), but was pre-wired with white lights before that was the thing, and even the lights had tiny bits of flocking on them. They were just beautiful. But last year both strings of original lights burned out during the time we had the tree up. So this year we put some tiny little led lights and then these standard-style retros. The colors are so much prettier and festive than the original tree… and that’s saying something!
