The Christmas Crate

You may remember this from last year, but it is my favorite decoration that I made years ago:
It is an old fruit crate that I painted and I have used it to hold holidays snacks and treats:
It sits on my kitchen counter, filled with candy this year...

And beside it is my favorite holiday book "A Cup of Christmas Tea", a melancholy tale about a young man visiting his elderly aunt - a "must read" for the holiday, but I warn you, it will bring a few tears to your eyes - it does that to me every time I read it!!
