Christmas With Victoria

 Today I am joining the blog party at "A Return To Loveliness."

I am a long time subscriber to Victoria and get much inspiration from the magazine.

I like to remember the Reason for the Season in our home...
While decorating using things from nature...
Simple beauty all around us...
In the garden....
This is a 1966 Tasha Tudor book called "Take Joy!"  A real treasure.
Even shelves and random areas get decorated...
Thanks for coming by and sharing the joy of the season with us!

  2. Dear Friend, Mrs. Rabe...we share the same book by Tasha Tudor..and what Joy she brings to my post too!
    I love your tree and all your special treasures..
