Quick Takes: All is calm, all is bright...

As the only day of the year the market closes, Christmas Day is much-anticipated at our house. As much as we love our business, you can imagine that 'all is calm, all is bright'...takes on a whole new meaning ;) 

The ornaments on this little tree are my favorites. 

The pink, plastic monkey came home with The Grocer in kindergarten. The little red stocking with my name embroidered on it was a party favor from a crafty room-mother who made one for every child in my grade-school class that year. And, best of all - the collection of handmade ornaments that our now-grown-and-married-kids made back when they were just little tykes. Though their Popsicle sticks, glitter, paint, and pipe cleaners are getting a bit worn, they are in a word: priceless.

From our home to yours, wishing you a very Merry Christmas! I hope 'all is calm, all is bright' for you, too.
