Weekend Glimmers, Nov 24-26, 2023

Glimmers . . . moments that spark joy, contentment, and peace, making me feel that all is well and I am right where I belong

Hannah and I on Thanksgiving. Also my only photo from the day! It was all good, from the delicious turkey dinner to the pies, playing games and laughing and enjoying being together with (some of) our kids.

This year’s Christmas (and beyond) mantel. It makes our living room so cozy and it’s neutral enough that I will leave it set up right through . . . February!

George snuggled up by one of our trees. This one doesn’t have ornaments and, like the mantel, will stay up way past Christmas. We got most of our inside decorating done over the weekend except for the big tree and it’s great to have it completed before it’s even December 1st.

This shed is our new set up for selling Kiwanis Christmas trees and I had a great time volunteering there on Sunday afternoon. It does my heart good to do this work for the club and support our town through the funds we raise.

I hope your weekend had moments you treasure.

  1. You and Hannah look happy and you remembered to take one more photo than I did. George looks so sweet (and I see an antler in the background), and has it been mentioned that your mantel is lovely?!

  2. I always think that any holiday where you’re too busy enjoying yourself to take photos has to be a good one! Your decorating looks beautiful — I’m sure you’ll enjoy all those twinkly lights in the dark of deep winter!

  3. I think this is my first time commenting! Just wanted to tell you I love your mantle and tree and fully support you in keeping it up throughout the dark winter! Let there be light!? – Ricki/Rigmor (love your blog, btw!)

  4. I’m so glad you had such a lovely Thanksgiving! And your mantle looks stunning!!!! It will be perfect through the (long) dark days of winter. XOXO

  5. That shed looks so cute!! I’d have fun poking around in there while someone loads the tree onto my car (because I wouldn’t be doing that!).

  6. It’s the Glimmer Twins! Although neither one of you resemble Mick Jagger or Keith Richard in the slightest. As a matter of curiosity, how much do your trees sell for? On Monday I saw a rack of trees going for $50(!), this in one of the poorest counties in Wisconsin. Then I heard of a place in the next village south selling trees for $15. They cut the trees themselves on their own land; when they run out, they go cut some more.
