A Shrine for St. Nick

Yesterday I was doing some long overdue yard clean-up and I was, once again, struck by how beautiful the yard clippings were. I decided to celebrate what would normally go in the yard waste bin and start a new Christmas decor tradition, The St. Nicholas Shrine. Here are my shrine "rules": 1. Only natural objects(okay that tree is in a plastic pot and I threw-in some old red ribbon, but that's it). 2. Don't fuss(too much) over placement; once you've put the offering down, that's it, no messing. 3. Encourage family participation. 4. With each offering, thank St. Nick. He was a pretty generous guy and, he's a saint.
5. If you build a shrine, tell me about it and I'll come visit you and make an offering. That's it.
