This year, I wanted to make the house feel really home-y with the
decorations that I pulled out of the boxes this year.
(I took these photos in the evening - with no lights on,
except the twinkle lights. . . so you could get the 'feel' of what we see.)
So, I picked the 'natural' themed trimmings for our little tree.
. . . little bird nests, fruits, & acorns. (. . . of course!)
There are lots of white lights - that are left on all day too. . .
. . . just because twinkly white lights make me happy!
Then there is a special little milk glass vase that I have
that holds it's bouquet of peppermint lollipops.
It has become a 'must-have' part of the Christmas decor
in the past few years, as we love these seasonal lollies!
(In fact. . . I've been known to hoard some bags of them
before they disappear from the shelves at the market. . .
just to be sure we can still have some after the start of new year!
Now, it's time for me to go & make a mocha & sit with my little guy
& enjoy the white lights & my memories of this blessed season.
