4 a.m. winter is beginning to really claim us now. a neighbor's garage light is on. and a sprinkle of snow is tumbling and twisting in the circle of brightness it makes. yesterday we bundled into the truck to bring home a christmas tree. and now it's standing in front of the living room window, creating the air of christmas for us. 60 years of love is balanced on it's branches. delicate inherited glass balls mingled with handmade paper decorations. the fireplace burns often now. and evenings seldom pass without my making a cup of tea. i will get snuggled into the holidays over the next weeks and settle in for the next few months of winter.
i listed stockings and literary lap quilts on etsy last night, filling my online shop with bits of what makes the little white house so special. and we're having another open house this coming sunday, december 16th from 10 - 5. we are welcoming you into the the little white house to browse the quilts and vintage books and sterling jewelry, the art and gifts and dreamy little treasures. so stop by 55 mowat ave in portsmouth village and maybe you'll find a special cherished gift.
