As I sit here cozy in my bed, under my warm down comforter, I listen to rain on the roof and the crackle of thunder outside. Instead I imagine big snowflakes falling, a cup of hot cocoa in hand, and a crackling wood fire in the fireplace. No matter where I am, or what is happening outside, the most important reason for the season is to celebrate. Celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. I think about the anticipation everyone must have felt Christmas Eve – the night before he was born. What a precious gift we all have been given, so let’s celebrate, today… tonight… tomorrow… every day!
With that said, I want to invite you in my home for a little Christmas Cheer! There aren’t too many pictures for you, but some that I hope you will enjoy.
Grab a cup of hot chocolate…
and come on in…
I tried to keep it simple this year…
using what I have…
in new and different ways.
I had to create a hot chocolate bar for the kids.
Notice the marshmallows…
They seem to disappear… hmmm…
I wonder WHO is taking them?
Do the marshmallows disappear in your house too?
I enjoy bringing the outdoors in, using found objects like this bird’s nest.
My $1.99 wreaths purchased at Michaels gave me the opportunity to
place them throughout the house.
The same wreaths I used on my Adirondack Chairs.
Here you can see the Magnolia Wreath I made hanging outside.
I made stockings this year out of drop cloths, and white dishcloths.
Dishcloths? Yes! It gave the right texture I was looking for.
My favorite purchase this year was at Home Goods.
Driftwood for $9.99.
I used it for garland on the mantel.
Thank you for visiting.
I hope you have a beautiful Christmas Eve!
