{merry merry christmas}

Merry Christmas, my friends. May you be touched by the magic of the season. Enjoy the last minute preparation...the wrapping and baking and tagging and oh-no-I-forgot-to-get-a-present-for...'s. Don't forget to have a cup of eggnog, sing along with the carols, talk about Christmases past and make great memories for everyone around you. And most importantly of all the preparations, make your heart ready. That's all that's really important.


Here are photos of my contribution for this round of Club Little House. Leave a comment here and you could win a set for your little garden. (Winner announced Saturday December 27)















Merry Christmas!










Love,
Amy

Merry Christmas to you as well! I have been a longtime reader of your blog -- it remains one of my favorites, and I am always excited when a new post shows up on my Google Reader. :)

Those gnomes are way too cute. I would have to make some special little terrarium to put them in -- it would be a good excuse since I have been wanting to make one anyway!

Isn't there a movie in which the husband accidentally orders 100 garden gnomes, and the delivery man leaves them on his front porch?
