So let's crank the Christmas carols and get this festive month started, shall we? Today's reblog was inspired by Don @ The Life Project—just one of the many, many Wordpress blogs I love yet never read enough of :-/ Don's thought provoking blog posts normally focus on insightful Bible study. In today's post, he decks the Victorian era halls with a glimpse back to when life seemed simpler, people connected without the internet and everyday heirloom gifts/decor were mostly handmade :) Totally my kind of fun! Add to that a charming on-screen vision of Christmas past via G.A. Smith's 1898 "Santa Clause" silent film and (although my yarny hands are holding knitting needles) you could even say I'm hooked! ;) Wishing a happy December to all, and to all a heartily wholesome night! <3 Jackie
