I found this old window at an antique mall. My twin sister was kind enough to buy it for me. It hangs in an opened arch over my piano. I wonder what stories it could tell.
This wreath seemed to fit it perfectly.
Wrapping gifts is a joy for me, and I take great pains in choosing paper.
Extra Christmas ornaments make a lovely display in my Waterford bowl, a wedding gift from almost 30 years ago. It is a treasure of mine.
The decorative plate is dated 1985, the year my daughter was born.
It was another gift from my beloved twin, and another treasure of mine.
An evening shot of my piano. I LOVE the many reflections in this picture.
A simple mantel of beads and balls.
For my dining room table, I started with an old garland, spray painted a few pine cones, scattered some old ornaments and strung an ancient string of chipped green lights I can't seem to part with.
My tree is the real show stopper. It was purchased after moving into my home a few years ago. I had lived in an apartment for five years, and needed something new and fresh. I could spend hours just staring at its splendor.
My daughter's dear dog Charlie was visiting Grandma and was wondering when she could join the festivities inside.
A nighttime shot, looking in.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you and yours have a very merry Christmas, and I'm excited to see your home and all your holiday cheer.
