You know that feeling when you look at something and know that it is supposed to be yours. I know people may have this feeling toward kittens and puppies and maybe shoes. But for me it was walking into the Swedish Embassy's Holiday Market and seeing this -
There was a table full of these little guys and this is the one I wanted. I find this incredibly cute and I'm not often drawn to something by its level of adorableness but this is it. I may keep this out all year round or until a Swede tells me to stop being ridiculous.
One of my work colleague's is a scout master and his troop was selling mistletoe for a fundraiser. I was really pleased to find some in the city after Mom had to send it to me from California in years past. I could not find this stuff in NYC.
No silver tree this year. I actually bought a real one which Anne and Dave will plant in their yard when the season ends.
I am not a crafty person but I was very excited to find the ribbon and the cute little clothespins to hang the cards up. I love receiving cards and am very excited every time I open the mail box.
I loved walking by the Capitol and seeing this beauty. It was early in the evening and I was surprised to see the moon in the sky over all of it.
It was a very DC Christmas moment.
