A Bit More Christmas Around My House


I added some Christmas cheer to my bathroom


I made a fresh garland out of some of the trimmings from the bottom of my tree. 

Fresh greenery, starfish, red raffia apple and a red ribbon



I decorated the buffet in my kitchen. 




I made this wreath from more trimming from the bottom of our Christmas tree and a hanger. 




I added a little bit more of Christmas to my bedroom



A splash of Christmas in my dinning area.








Here is our Chrismas tree!

One of our family traditions that I cherish this time of year is getting a new ornament.  We started this when  my daughter was a small girl.  We would  go to the Hallmark store and she would pick out a family photo ornament and then she would pick a special ornament  for herself.

  7. If Benita has designs on stealing anything, (especially that chair), she's gonna have to get past me first ;).

    I wanted to stop by and thank you for your sweet comment on my Spotlight post a few weeks ago. I've been very remiss about visiting as it is a super busy time of year and we are also getting ready to head South in a few days.

    You have a beautiful blog, and your pictures are a treat for the eyes.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
