… homey little touches of Christmas

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.

Everything is so beautiful! I am delighted to see your "Frosted Windowpanes" quilt hanging! I was just looking last night at my Brenda stash and saw that I have it kitted and awaiting my attention! Will definitely put that on my to-do list for 2013!!

Merry Christmas!
