My very favorite way to begin setting the mood for the season is to review this book - Christmas Joy - by Susan Branch.
Ideas for "decking the halls" are especially helpful. Thank you, Susan!
Another book that is well-loved by many in our family is this one:
Some gllimpses inside follow.
Tolkien fans are sure to enjoy this one!
Take some time for a reading break! I always feel refreshed when I do!
Those look like some really good books! I enjoy reading the "Stories from the Heart" series, and the Christmas Stories from the Heart are especially heartwarming. I need to get that book out again and make a special effort to do some reading, since the stories are short and the book is easy to put down when time is short. Have a fabulous Friday, Sister!ReplyDelete
Looks like some great illustrations in the Tolkien book.ReplyDelete

Some great keepsake books for this time of year.ReplyDelete
I have the Susan branch book. It is relaxing to scim through the pages of a book like that. Cookbooks with pictures or history in them are my favorite.ReplyDelete
Nellie, I had no idea Tolkien wrote anything like that! I will have to check it out - thanks!ReplyDelete
I'd never heard of the Tolkien one. I love the Susan Branch one and was thinking of it rereading it today. :)ReplyDelete
