A wonderful thing has happened ~
three friends have gotten together
...to recreate a cherished & beloved story of Christmastime...
The Night Before Christmas ~
A Decorative Retelling of Clement Moore's Endearing Tale
by Mark kimball Moulton ~ Noel Runnals 3rd ~ Verge Prior III
a beautiful journey back in time through photographs and storytelling ~
...as only these three friends can share.
If you haven't had the pleasure of getting your copy from
you can purchase a copy from me at our Christmas Open House on December 7th here at the farm.
|page after page of inspirational decorating ideas, crisp & clear photographs and the story of Christmas...|
a book that warms your heart and makes you long for days long ago...
while thumbing through the pages of this book,
my mind wanders to another place in time...
a time perhaps where it was slower paced, family & home were to be honored
the government was something to be respected and manners meant something.
I try to keep my life simple like that.
simple & right.
the samplers that I'm working on lately
help me to connect to that place & time by allowing my heart & hands to tell a story on thread....
I love not counting threads and stitches,
just allowing my thoughts to dictate what appears on my cloth
and seeing what comes from that ~
|Christmas sampler in progress ~|
candle light & music help me travel back....
....to tell a story with my needle & thread ~
* Blessed be *
