Christmas Inspiration

The sights and sounds of Christmas come alive when you're surrounded with festive decor. To feed my need for inspiration, I paid Mary a visit at Home Again.

Mary has a natural gift for turning the ordinary into extraordinary. If she were a window dresser in New York City, she'd be making some serious cash.

Every time you walk into her store, you never know what you're going to see because her inventory changes all the time. That's what I love about Home Again. 

A knickknack here, a knickknack there, everywhere you turn there's something new. This little birdhouse is quite charming. What a unique color.

Dinner, anyone?

Bring on the scones.

Merry Christmas!

Berwick Lights 2011

It's that time of year when everyone takes in the Berwick Lights along Market Street in Berwick, Pennsylvania. The charming display of Christmas decorations is sure to delight both young and old alike.  

Outsider artwork is the term that comes to mind when I look at this cute, little snowman.

In its 65th year, the Berwick Jaycees put on a magnificent Christmas display.

And may we never forget the meaning of Christmas.
