before the storm

before the storm
The wind started to blow, which made me look out the window, which made me grab my camera, which made me run outside, which made me ever so grateful for our little home among the saguaros.

a little bit of Christmas is starting to show...

Getting to the Christmas stuff is a big deal around here. I don't even try any more. My tastes have changed so there are fewer boxes than in years past. I like a simple look. Everything is in a storage room, up too high. I have never liked step stools, much less ladders so it is worth waiting until W can help me. However, there are a few little things that I have tucked away here and there while I am waiting for the weekend to decorate. These were my antique store treasures found at junk store prices in July. Just looking at this gives me a little holiday cheer.
