Our family room is definitely filled with red and white Christmas decorations. I just love red...what can I say. This year I hung red wool stockings...simple, yet bold. My mantle is also less cluttered this year. I like to change it up a bit. I like the simplicity of it. So does our new friend Rudy Reindeer. Yes, I found him thrifting. With Salvation Army's 50% off day...I got him for $2.00. He was lying there on a shelf amongst a bunch of hmm hmm...junk....Our eyes met and I saw a twinkle in his. I really did. I swooped him up looked him in the eye and said " your comin' home with me" and at that very moment he smiled. I clutched him in my arms and merrily pranced over to the checkout, handed over the money with pleasure and gleefully took him home. True story. Doesn't he look happy to be in my home? I promised him, he was a keeper.
Have a wonderful weekend.
