Linking up with Planet Penny for her final "Reasons to be Cheerful" post of the year (the merriness shall resume in January), I find that all of this week's reasons start with a C. Which is highly appropriate, since Christmas is filling the thoughts of many at this time.
1. Carnations from my husband. Mr. M is not usually a flowery guy, but every so often he gets the urge to buy a bouquet. Knowing I love carnations, he gave me these last week. Simply beautiful.
2. Candles on the windowsill. Following this excellent tip from KatEzat which I found on the December Making Winter Bloghop, I invested in a package of tea lights and popped a few into empty jam jars. Look how they Cheerful'd up our evening windowsill. It's amazing how much joy a tiny flickering light can give.
3. Christmas Decorations about the house. I love getting these out every year and filling the house with Cheer.
(I think I need a few more Christmassy quilts.)
A Cheerful and peaceful end-of-year to all. For more merriness, hop over to Planet Penny's.
