I cannot believe that Christmas will be here in less than one week. I have been in desperate need of a little Christmas – or at least one of Santa’s elves to make an appearance in my home, and work a bit of Christmas Magic! Alas, no elves have appeared but last weekend Sam did go with me to get a tree.

Slowly, over the week, I placed ornaments on the tree. However, trimming a tree sans little children is just not quite the same.


However, Christmas has been unfurling slowly in my house.


Finally, I finished trimming the tree yesterday, and in finishing – some of the wonder and magic of Christmas began to spring to life inside me.

I even feel invigorated enough to finish the decorating and my shopping!


Just in time too – since I have Monday and Tuesday off!

If you should find yourself needing “a little Christmas, right this very minute…” you can find it here. I have no spinet, but I do have Carols galore!

The welcome mat is out, I have eggnog in the fridge – and I even have a splash of brandy, if you are so inclined!

I am sending you all, Gentle Readers, the warmest of Christmas wishes from Casa del KatKnits – may your holiday be overflowing with Christmas cheer!
