Christmas at Home ~ 2013

I'm sharing at:

I haven't gone "all out" decorating this year, and I've not taken a lot of photos, but welcome to my home.

Nothing too fancy, but it brings me joy.

The tree is spectacular in the afternoon sun.
As you see, I tend to let my tree shine and go easy on the ornaments.

This winter wreath decorates an old window
hanging between my entryway and living room.

Nothing fancy in the dining room. Just a string of lights and a flurry of snow.

I love wrapped gifts with pretty bows.
I love my little granddaughter, too, cheek-to-cheek with her mom.

And speaking of her... Any time she is around, my day is merry and bright.

My favorite picture of the season thus far.
So impromptu. So magical.

And that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by. I hope this holy season is filled with peace and good will for you and yours. Nothing else really matters.

  4. Your tree is stunning. I have a tabletop silver tinsel tree but am sure loving your full sized one.

  14. My grandmother had a tree like yours when I was a girl, and it had a color wheel to shine on it changing the whole thing from red to green to yellow to blue! Yours is much prettier! Your home is lovely and your daughter and granddaughter are lovelier still!

    Merry Christmas!
