Simple Tree of Earthly Delights and Good Tidings...

TREE of SIMPLE DELIGHTS
and
GOOD THOUGHTS

"Choose wisely then, each ornament.... for branches that have worn jewels of gleaming mountain rain."
--Elizabeth Ellan-Long


A Tree of Earthly Delights...

I am feeling very muted this season...
thinking in tune with nature...the sea...northern lights...stars & angels...ancient myths and mists. Thus...starfish...gilded pomegranates...tiny herbal wreaths...white berries...
garden vials... Heavenly Hosts announcing... old things made new.

...woody garlands with muted berries...gilded tiny pitchers (vintage gold luster-ware)...ivory colored cherubs from one of our earliest Christmas's....

...pressed tin tea pots mingle with a second, tiny gold pitcher...pearly garlands...silver-plated miniature baskets garnered from a wedding-favor supplier (at a mere $1 each)... nothing here is new...all collected over time.

...gold Cherubim are quite comfy alongside the white bisque angels...gilded pears...more berries...and tiny colored lights...

...Angel gift...encased in a cellophane gift bag (with gold stars) --tied at the top with an ethereal tulle bow-- set among the branches... awaiting giving time...

...another Angel gift hidden among the branches...

...if you look closely...you may find a half-dozen or more white and gold porcelain cups
tucked among the boughs..."my cup runneth over with joy..."

...look closely...see the dragonfly resting atop the branches...

...our home-spun gold spoons nestled inside the branches...
Rumpelstiltskin's Delight ...

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."
