Christmastime is so wonderful; my favorite time of the year! I love all things red & green, the carols, and especially fragrances of something yummy baking and cinnamon & evergreen!

Every Good and Perfect Gift is from Above!

Love these scripture platters and dishes!
They make a wonderful focal point!

A Timely Message!
"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth
Peace among men with whom He is pleased."
Luke 2:14 NAS

Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the
Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change
like shifting shadows. James 1:17 NIV

Snowman tubes of yummy hot chocolate
for stockings or Little Happies!
Comfort and Joy Diffuser is just the
fragrance for the holidays!
Stained Glass Christmas tree spreader,
packaged and ready to give.
Every Good and Perfect Gift Handled Platter
displays the right sentiment for
the "Reason for the Season!
Snowmen ornaments, towels,
tart burners and spoon rests are more
very nice Little Happy gifts!

Joy to the World,
the Lord is come!
Let Earth receive her King;
let every heart prepare him room,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven and nature sing
and heaven and heaven, and nature sing.

But the angel said to them,
"Do not be afraid, for behold,I being you
Good Tidings of Great Joy
that which shall be for all the people;
Today in the city of David
there has been born for you a Savior;
who is Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign for you:
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger."
Luke 2:10

Scripture Platters: Every Good and Perfect Gift!
Holly with Peace! Joy to the World!
Candy Canes platter matching MLT towels,
Santa Claus Bowl and several MLT towels,
Nostalgic large rectangular stocking platter
and small oval with historic Ho Ho Ho Santas.
Great for gifts, but you may decide
you need one yourself!
It only takes a little Christmas
(plate, towel, bowl, dish, holly, peppermint, etc.)
woven into your everyday displays to
"Have a Little Christmas! Right this very minute!"

Getting into the Spirit of Christmas!
Lovie, start early so you can enjoy
discovering just the right gift for your
best friends and family!

Thank you Friends! We appreciate you so much!
