The first candle has been lit.
Candle number one on our Advent wreath represents love
Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine:
Love was born at Christmas:
Star and angels gave the sign.
It was a very easy wreath this year. Almost too easy (good thing I have that e-course coming up to keep me busy!) I found the patchwork wreath I made last year in its storage box in the cellar and decided it looked rather nice! Feeling blissfully happy that I live out in the country out I went and snipped away at bushes and trees in our yard and even my lavender and rosemary bushes. These herb bundles are so fragrant along with the evergreens. Mmmm....
I will leave you today with an image of some goodies from my shop that just were dispatched to a customer and another great quote from one of our children's favorites...
"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. " ~Dr Seuss
Happy First Week of Advent!
