simple elegance

I lead the ladies of my church in making new decorations for the Christmas tree in the sanctuary.
Last summer I got wheat from my brother who has a big long title with crop improvement and seed certification. The ladies got together in early November and tied little bundles of wheat heads into sheafs complete with a red ribbon. We also made 5 and 6 point stars from the straw. They were all quite skeptical as to how the decorations would look on the tree. The gold straw with the red balls is a lovely combination against a  fresh evergreen tree. --Ann--

Let us approach Christmas with an expectant hush, rather than a last-minute rush.

You tree looks beautiful and I hope I can put the "saying" into practice! Take care
