It's the season of Mistletoe and Bliss! My favorite Christmas CD is Celine Dion and I love this song:

Walkin' with you in a winter's snow
Kissin' underneath the mistletoe
People smiling everywhere we go
It's Christmas Eve and I can see we're in love

Ooh, you make the season bright
With the lights reflecting in your eyes
All my dreams are comin' true tonight
It's Christmas Eve and I can see we're in love

Willing IF Able

A fun custom-design for friends to give as a gift for their pastor's wife. Apparently, she tells a terrific story in marriage counseling about being Willing if her husband was  Able. You fill in the blanks:) Anyway, we thought this shocking orange magnesite would complement her dark brown skin very nicely. Then we mixed in a few Swarovski crystals and carved coconut wooden beads to lighten it up.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Pointsettia SOLD

There is an old Mexican Christmas legend about the Poinsettia: There was once a poor Mexican girl called Pepita who had no present to give the the baby Jesus at the Christmas Eve Services. As Pepita walked to the chapel, sadly, her cousin Pedro tried to cheer her up.

'Pepita', he said 'I'm sure that even the smallest gift, given by someone who loves him will make Jesus Happy.' Pepita didn't know what she could give, so she picked a small handful of weeds from the roadside and made them into a a small bouquet. She felt embarrassed because she could only give this small present to Jesus. As she walked through the chapel to the altar, she remembered what Pedro had said. She began to feel better, knelt down and put the bouquet at the bottom of the nativity scene.

Suddenly, the bouquet of weeds burst into bright red flowers, and everyone who saw them were sure they had seen a miracle. From that day on, the bright red flowers were known as the 'Flores de Noche Buena', or 'Flowers of the Holy Night'.

The shape of the poinsettia flower and leaves are sometimes thought as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem which led the Wise Men to Jesus. The red colored leaves symbolize the blood of Christ. The white leaves represent his purity.

16.5+2 inches long, Pointsettia is $38 and the earrings, $12
