Beautiful, even if made in China.
Oh, and you’re going to linkup with CM, too, right?
My advent wreath story: ours was part of the goods stolen in February. So, our insurance replaced it (with an actual wreath) – but it’s even better than the one we had. I *assumed* it came with candles. When I realized it didn’t, I hit the local Catholic-Christian bookstore on Saturday – only to find they are all out. So…Target has lavender scented tea lights. …we have no pink “joy” candle…but, we have candles, and that is close enough for this year.
Well that’s a hidden blessing, huh? I neglected to purchase Advent candles, too, and found some at Bed Bath & Beyond. I was surprised to see they had a nice selection of Advent-specific candles. And I put a 20% coupon to good use! You should blog & linkup to CM, too!
I love special wreaths like these. I’ve been keeping my eye out for just the right one but haven’t found it yet. I like the carvings and quote on yours. Where did you find it? (Even if it is made in china) I think it would be really cool to get a custom-carved one somehow…
I found it through the gift shop at Conception Abbey. I did not pay this much for it, though. I found an online coupon during the off season. Here’s the link: http://www.printeryhouse.org/ProdPage.asp?Prod=G1880
We make a big deal of the Christmas decorations and festivities. BUT WHAT IS THE YARDSTICK TO MEASURE OURSELVES AND SEE WHETHER WE ARE REALLY CHRISTIANS?
