My true love gave to me, SIX Fraser fir arrangements, FIVE Mattie Windsors, FOUR scrabble boards, THREE burlap stockings, TWO strands of wine cork garland, and ONE monogrammed wreath for our front door.

This year we went to the farmer’s market in Greensboro to select the Hurt family Christmas tree.  Mattie Windsor was immediately drawn to a beautiful snow-covered Fraser fir that was locally grown in North Carolina.  While we were waiting for the tree to be tied to the top of our car, I rescued several extra limbs that had been removed from other trees earlier in the day.   I used the branches to add a little extra green throughout our house and the results smell wonderful.
