Hello sweet friends and welcome to this stop on the tour...and in honor of your visit we have composed a little "kari & kijsa" Ode to Christmas...because after all...nothing says Christmas like a little house tour set to rhyme **wink**...


Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the house
kari and kijsa scurried about like a mouse




tucking wrapped boxes and gifts
'neath the evergreen tree
in the hopes that their bed they would soon see


"but wait" shouts out kijsa
startling all in the room
and kari knew a new project would begin soon...




"The tree is all decked
with ornaments bright
and the stockings are hung above firelight,"




"The presents all wrapped
with be-ribboned flair
but what looks so simple is that empty box there"

"Why the rough wood on the sides
could be scrubbed and adorned
so that it would not stand so bare and forlorn..."

"but as the two sisters stood there
with diet cokes in their hands
they knew it was perfect and would let it stand"

"For the simple box opened
to reveal what they saw...
a rough and unwoven mat made of straw"


"and they knew past the sparkle
and all the rush and the fray
the true gift of the Babe given on Christmas day."



Okay...now one last thing because we truly heart Kimba...we had planned this incredible giveaway of a one-of-a-kind snowman ornament (just like the one that was featured in the magazine)...so there the ornament sits in all it's glory...screaming to be photographed...and then...life happened...kijsa is currently stranded in the Memphis airport (if any of you are currently in the Memphis airport reading this on your laptop...she is the one frantically walking around in a daze with a paint brush).

...so suffice it to say (you will have to take our word on this one)...the ornament is fabulous and we are giving it away...just leave a comment on our blog ( kari & kijsa ) and we will draw a winner on Christmas Eve Eve (just because we feel that Christmas Eve Eve is a truly underappreciated day and we wanted it to feel special)...

So from both of us...have a very, very Merry Christmas and thank you to Kimba for this incredible open house!

Christmas blessings,

kari & kijsa
