It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The Bell's will be Ringing . . . it's Christmas time again  . . .
The dining room is ready for Christmas. 
This hand-carved swan is my absolute most prized possession. My dad carved him just for me. Isn't it a thing of beauty? Each unpacked box of Christmas decorations hold so many happy memories. Make this promise, slow down a bit and take time to connect with those that are far and near. 

Silver, snow, berries, and twigs are all aglow. 


Both hurricanes are filled with snow, flocked bottle brush trees and a votive .. I'm careful to keep the flame  clear--A tabletop bonfire wouldn't do.

 Can't you hear Bob, Phil, Betty and Judy?

Snow, snow, snow, snow . . .

SNOW (From White Christmas) ~  Writer: GREANEY, MARK WILLIAM 

It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow
I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow

I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow
Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow

Where it's snowing 
All winter through
That's where I want to be
Snowball throwing
That's what I'll do
How I'm longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh

Those glist'ning houses that seem to be built of snow
Oh, to see a mountain covered with a quilt of snow

What is Christmas with no snow
No white Christmas with no snow

I'll soon be there with snow
I'll wash my hair with snow
And with a spade of snow
I'll build a man that's made of snow
I'd love to stay up with you but I recommend a little shuteye
Go to sleep 
And dream 
Of snow

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, surrounded by those you love.

Such a gorgeous christmas tree. I love how you decorated it and the snow village underneath. My favorite is your chandelier over the table. So pretty.
