Merry Christmas Eve! Or, if that ain’t your thang, Happy December 24th! I’ll be signing off for a bit to enjoy the holidays with my family; but not without leaving your eyeballs some before and after holiday goodness first.
This cute little sleigh was built by Tracy’s dad years ago. She displayed on the front porch every Christmas, stuffed with presents or evergreens.

Very Dickinsonian! See more on Tracy’s blog General Splendour.
