Christmas Trees!


Saturday Space Matters



Christmas trees are a tradition in our family. There was one Christmas when I was pressed for time but friends convinced me to put one up at the last minute.


Recently I watched a tutorial on youtube, “How to Decorate a Christmas Tree with Decorations“. Watching it got me all exhausted. It did convince me, however, that having a decorated tree inside one’s home during the celebration of the birthday of our Savior Jesus Christ is nice. The lights swirled around the branches remind me of the stars that must have been a’glowing and twinkling on that miraculous night when:


“One night in the cold, in the dark, among the wrinkled hills of Bethlehem, those two worlds came together at a dramatic point of intersection. God, who knows no before or after, entered time and space. God, who knows no boundaries took on the shocking confines of a baby’s skin, the ominous restraints of mortality.”

Taken from Philip Yancey’s book, The Jesus I Never Knew
Do you want to go housecrashing with me this Christmas? Come on, hold my hand as I take you on a quick tour of my friends homes. Enjoy with me their own one of a kind and no doubt decorated with love Christmas trees.

B’s Flower Arrangements


Monday Meanderings & Inspiration

This post came about when B shared a comment on my article about Japanese Living Rooms.


B’s comment:

“I love Japanese Living. We’ve lived in Tokyo, Japan for more than 3 years and I just love love it! The food, the people, the language which I learned and which I forgot now, their culture as a whole you can make make yourself JAPANACHE!!! … I learned to do the Sogetsu Ikebana -flower arrangement, do the the tea box using the washi paper , Japanese paper with beautiful designs, cover an eggshell using this paper…”


Immediately I got excited and appealed to B to share photos of her flower arrangements with me. This woman is such a multifaceted and generous person. She immediately shared two pictures. But I begged for more knowing that you my readers would appreciate her flower arrangements.


As I was doing this article all the stresses of the day seemed to just disappear. I have been encouraging B to do her own blog. What sayeth you B?


Thanks so much B for sharing your lovely creations. This is just part one, right? :) Read more about B on my first article on this ‘fashionista’ who has been very supportive in my blog journeys and adventures.
