Very good! I sometimes wonder about that, and you have said it so well. Merry Christmas!
Thanks, Naomi, and Merry Christmas to you, too!
Well written Sarah 😉
As pretty as those lights look, I’m sure they cost a pretty penny!!
I don’t want to deny them glitter (if that’s what they want) but they just need to replace the old lights that guzzle all that electricity with LED lights.
Very nice! Interestig is done in the shape of a cross…!
So it is! I hadn’t noticed that. Subliminal, indeed.
