Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Little Touches of the Season

My Christmas decorating will be a little subdued this year with the addition of puppy Koda to our pack. She has already confused balls of knitting yarn with her tennis ball-so I'm not going to tempt her with a tree laden with glass ball-shaped ornaments. This Christmas in the Rorvig household will probably be about small touches- little vignettes, carefully placed where playful paws can't get to them. These sweet vintage mugs were the first to come out. I imagine the couple on the mug as happy Christmas shoppers-he's offering to carry her packages. May your shopping be as festive and delightful.

And remember:

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. ~Pierre Corneille, Le Menteur

Love the little mugs!

We have 3 dogs and have to be pretty careful too. Most of my special stuff and our tree is in our enclosed front porch... I can shut the door when the dogs aren't supervised! Altough the yellow lab has still mangage to mangle a few things over the years!

PS my daughter has a new puppy and she keeps her balls of yarn in a washed out 2 liter pop bottle that has the bottom cut off. Put the yarn up through the "spout" and it stays safe from curious helpers.

I love your holiday "decor" here! I quite recall modifying the Christmas decorations many years, for both children and dogs.
