When I took down our Christmas decorations a few weeks ago, I realized I wasn't ready to let the nostalgia of the season go. I was ready for less clutter, but I wanted to bring in the glories of winter. It doesn't snow where I live, and I've never seen a white Christmas. My thoughts turned to the ethereal quality of white, and how much I love it.
I've heard many designers call white cold and sterile. Some say it is an unimaginative way to decorate. To me, a room done in layers of white is heaven.
I have a small archway in my home that I like to decorate all year round. It doesn’t feel like home unless something is hanging from my it. When I took down our Christmas garland, it looked bare and lonely.
I kept picturing something white and pretty, but couldn’t quite envision what I wanted. Then the thought of feathers filled my mind; lovely white ones, draped across the archway. Luckily, I had two white boas, and voila!
A Winter Wonderland
A sweet fairy adrift in dreamland
