Merry Christmas Everyone


These are some random shots around the home this Christmas.  


I never posted the mantel and hearth so here it is! 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hot Cocoa Anyone? (T)


Feeling like some hot cocoa for lunch!  Come along and join me!

 After viewing Pam's tablescape of Everyday Living I decided to incorporate some blue with tartan.  I layered a white charger, my blue Devon Cottage dishes along with the Toile dishes from Pier 1.(Snowland Village) and Silver snowflakes wrapping the fork and napkin.

Here's a collage of the four different patterns of these dishes.  (Pier 1, Snowland Village)
 I put together four different adorably shaped seasonal mugs with candy canes.  You can stir your hot cocoa with them!

I love this swet reindeer face the most!

I reused the arrangement I had in my last tablescape.  I cut pieces back significantly to fit into this candle votive that I'm using for a vase.
Hot cocoa (didn't have marshmallows but will get some!)

My amaryllis are blooming away.  All three colors are out now.

So glad we aren't getting all that snow that's predicted for the East coast, but praying for them as this is predicted to be a big one! 

Thanks for joining me!

2nd Christmas Tree and Entryway


Greetings!  My 2nd tree isn't much different than last years.  I enjoy it near the kitchen and have a few personsal ornaments tucked in! 

I picked up this tree topper last year at Home Goods.  I put some floral fluff around it.

My Grandson helped his mom make this last year, precious!

My elf makes a reappearance.  I think they are fun but not everyone likes them!

Our daughter who lives in California went to Disneyland just before it was shut down due to Covid and purchased this ornament for us.

 My tartan santa from Pier 1 several years back.  The tree basket was also from Pier 1.  It came with a red ribbon but I change it out to go with whatever my theme is.
The entryway chest is decked out with various neutral colored items that I've collected through the years.

I got the two trees this year at a favorite place up in Petoskey.

The ornament ball came from Home Goods.  I grabbed it up with no real plan but I'm glad I did.
It lights up!

I picked up the deer last year on clearance in Petoskey also but at a different store.

The Santa is a Bethany Lowe I picked up in Rochester, my home town, several years back.  I felt so lucky to find it.  I was just amazed over how all these pieces fit together so nicely!

The red runner is part a set I bought in Frankenmuth.  I really wanted to get back there this year but with Covid we decided to stay home. 

Tis' the season!

Christmas Vignette on the Credenza

I like to do something different each year.  
 I found the little angel, tree, white truck and lantern at Hobby Lobby.  I had the little green cottage which is a Bethany Lowe pieces and the littlest trees.  The truck lights up!
 I found the ski girl at Lenox a few years back.  Thought she’d be cute in there and the pinecone skirt goes with the pinecone nutcracker.
 The lamppost clock was also from Hobby Lobby! 

I was trying to catch the glitter on the snow of the cottage and truck.

Here it is lit up at night.  I took better pics with my real camera but I can’t load them right now due to a computer problem we’re having.
 I’ve got amaryllis blooming away. 

We got about 7 or 8" of snow yesterday.  Here’s a couple of outdoor night shots.

Tis’ the season!
