Recently, a friend posted to Facebook; "Finish this sentence: 'The best feeling in the worlds is...'" Of course I said, " Preparing for Christmas; decor, cards, baking, designing" and amid the other enthusiastic responses were; "nostalgia", "crisp, clean sheets", "knowing you're needed" and "hugging my mother"! I love this type of joint, thought-stirring activity....the gift of sharing our true and real lives! I think it says to one another, "hey, we're all real people, all figuring life out together!" I think I'm addicted to Christmas Spirit because of all these 'best feelings' - that's what Christmas is about; from nostalgia to clean sheets! Yesterday was certainly a day of 'best feelings' as I adventured through the kitschy and wonderful world of Antique and Retro Christmas Fair Vendors with my dear friend and side-kick, missed one ferry and managed to almost miss another (we were talking, ok!), and lunched by the seaside. Then, just to throw that perfect topper on an already trimmed tree, we managed to end it all with a scrounge in the ditch for some freshly fallen White Pine boughs (thank you to the kind man who let us load up the Station Wagon!). Now, with wee vintage trinkets in hand for gifts, boughs for dressing the house and a warmed heart, I bid you all goodnight... BUT...I'm dying to hear of your 'Best Feelings'! Do leave me a comment, for I love the feeling of finding feed-back. It's almost as addictive as alliteration!
