Still I couldn't help tinker and share it with you.
Let's start with some gingham and rip it to strips
To add festive touches --
Keep reading for tips!
Gather some greens from a tree or the ground
Prop in a vase and with gingham surround
Let flatware shine in a jarring display
Or even a hook, it doesn't quite matter
Tie even the short strips wherever you can -- a chandelier arm or the chain of a fan
Place bottle brush trees amidst bright knotted rags
But tinkering is playing and playing is fun!
And playing reminds us to laugh and to pause
To enjoy all that's little
Perhaps that's my cause ...
enjoy the season!
