SLEIGH BELLS RING.......




It was after taking my first horse and carriage ride around Central Park at Christmas a few years ago that I found this horse and carriage for my own front lawn.  I think we chose the coldest day of the year to get it set up on the lawn, and today I filled it with fresh greens and a big red bow.  I love how it looks, and I love the memory of that first ride around Central Park in my own life size chariot, driven by my own personal coach wearing a black top hat, and I bundled in my warm red blanket was  feeling like I was living the scene of a real life Christmas card as we trotted away through the Christmas city streets.

How unusual! I have never seen anything like that in someone's yard. So pretty and I love the arrangement you made to adorn it. I bet you did feel like you were in a Christmas scene.
