All that Glitters…

Hello, my name is Ginger

and I’m a recovering perfectionist.

Christmas decorating—or decorating of any kind—could be temptation beyond bearing for people like me.

But I’m learning simple is best for me.

Here’s the incomplete tour:

my favorite tags—plain or metal-rimmed stamped with a monogram—cheap and easy:

These are simple pleasures of the season.

Be blessed,

Ginger
