Deck the Halls…..

My Halls are decked and I am ready for the season ahead. I have had such a fun time trying new things this year and decorating with out so much red. Don’t get me wrong I still love the color Red ….. but all white has been very soothing to me and especially at Christmas. Cream and White reminds me of a Winter snow( we got our first snow of the year today!) Come on in and have some Hot Chocolate and a visit.

My tree was really fun to create. I used the letters of my family, stuffed glass ornaments with shredded paper and used only white, cream& champagne colored ornaments and Burlap ribbon. I love the way it turned out – don’t you just love it when a plan comes together?
I carried the white scheme on to the dining room and added more silver.
My favorite decorations? I would have to say my little cardboard houses. When I was a little girl my family had some of these houses and always had them under the tree. I would lay on my stomach and look at them and think little people lived in them – I had quite an imagination(still do). A few years ago when they started making reproductions of these little darlings I started collecting some. They remind me of my childhood Christmas and beside they just make me – smile.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have your halls decked and you are enjoying the beauty of the season -
Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, precious Molly!Thanks for this beautiful post. What fun I had looking through all your pictures and seeing all the beautiful vinettes you have created in your house. I can almost imagine being there and visiting over cocoa with you....oh! I'm tearing up!

Jo Carol told me how wonderful Quaint was! Will you be posting any pics from that? Also, who do I need to get my address to? I didn't recieve the last invite (they may have stopped forwarding our mail) and I want to stay connected.

Yesterday, I thought about this time last year, when we gather at the manger and warmed our hearts on the glow of His love...I miss you Molly. I pray God's richest blessings on your life and the thrill of joy that comes when we live close to Him.
