Last evening, as I was making myself a mocha in the kitchen, I paused as I turned out the kitchen light. . .
Oh. . . how I love the lights of Christmas.
These are the boughs with little twinkle lights, berries, & pine cones that that I put out to trim the upper kitchen counter & the armoire on the way into my studio. They give off the most wonderful light. . . I just love the glow they bring to the rooms they grace.
I put up three lit boughs throughout the house & a few other small decorations, & then decided that was enough. . . I'm feeling the need to keep it all simpler this year. I welcome the season with all my heart (& was already listening to Christmas music a few weeks ago!) - but simpler is feeling better for me this year.
I also decided that these would be the quilts hung around the house & placed on the couch (for naps & reading!). . .
Winter Memories . . . over the couch in the living room. . .
Bittersweet. . . on the wall in the dining room. . .
Stitching Winter Memories. . . in the kitchen. . .
. . . & on various couches & chairs. . .
Coventry. . .
. . . & Bliss (because it always reminds me of snowflakes!)
. . . So, in these often busy holiday weeks. . . I hope you
have make some time to snuggle under a warm quilt & simply enjoy the lights of this very special season!
