sparkle is important...

Today was the day that I put away our nativity.
I could not get myself to put away the wreath yet.
I love the sparkle that it gives the room so I will
just keep telling myself that it is a 
Winter Decoration
and not just for Christmas.

Sparkle is important,
nobody will ever be able to convince me otherwise.

Truth be told all of the wreaths are still up
both inside and out.
o.k. the trees are still up on the porch too,
it's way to cold for me to put them away.
plus there is the sparkle factor to consider!

It is a beautifully sunshiny day here in Michigan
freezing but beautiful.
A good day for a cup of tea.
Vanilla Chai for me...
what can I make for you?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. so pretty, Theresa, I don't blame you. My dad loved Christmas so much, he never wanted mom to put things up until the end of January! and yes, sparkle is always important!! xoxo

  2. I'm with ya! A little sparkle is always necessary! I have my outdoor deocrations up still too! It's cold here in MN and no way am I freezing my caboose to take them down.

  3. I'm with you T we still have both our real trees up and lite up most nights. I am starting to remove a few things here and there. Our outside wreaths will stay up into Feb or until I can't take it anymore, or they are brown and crispy:) with this cold I think they will last until May.


  4. Yes, I agree...sparkle is important. And I think this can also be a mindset - let the sparkle inside shine on the outside.


Thank you so much for visiting me here at The Old White House, your comments make my day! ~ Theresa xoxo
