Bringing the Year to an End

It seems like Christmas just flew by…it was here and now it’s gone. It was a lovely but brief season this year with such a late Thanksgiving, and I just don’t have the heart to tuck away the splendor of it all quite yet. Sometime next weekend, they will begin to seem odd and cluttered, but for now they still bring me joy! I hope you enjoy them as well…

We will still have the memories…

I need a little…Rest!

School is over, vacation has started, the energy level is high at the house…thanks to a certain little Princess. We are baking, shopping, packing, singing and reveling in the season…and I’m looking forward to some. It can’t happen yet…but in a few days, Christmas is here and the build up will be over and there will be time for the quiet reflection of the holiday beyond the beautiful vintage decor and steamy mugs of hot chocolate. It may not be Hallmark perfect but it will be pretty darn nice… enjoy what I’m enjoying right now in my cozy home!

A tradition just started…Princess time at the Nutcracker tea!

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

In between the busy, when the house is quiet and the day is almost over, I like to sit and just enjoy our lovely home dressed up in Christmas fineness. Sometimes it’s the simple touches that grab my heart, evergreen tucked into a vintage milk bottle or cute little gingerbread men peeking from am enamelware pot. Sometimes a little glitz makes me smile, gold capiz shell angels and shiny mercury glass trees sparkling in the firelight. Aesthetically confusing, perhaps, but it makes happy. I hope it makes you happy as well!

And what can match the perfection of a cheery gingerbread house, decorated with love!
