For those celebrating, Happy Santa Lucia!
For the past couple of years, we have marked the occasion with doll making (clothespin dolls and cork dolls). This year, I found a wreath ornament at the Salvation Army thrift shop (score 50 cents) and I sewed a white gown (it is a 18 inch doll peasant style) for our American Girl Doll. It is very similar to Kristen’s outfit on the AG site.
Darkness shall take flight soon,
From earth’s valleys.
So she speaks a
Wonderful Word to us:
A new day will rise again
From the rosy sky…
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
