My TRUE LOVE gave to me…Celebration!
I love to decorate my house for ANY Holiday or special occasion. My kids used to say that I “up-chucked” (insert obnoxious kid word here) Christmas all over our house. Maybe I do tends towards a TAD overkill. I have tried to tone it down a bit over the years I just enjoy doing it so much. I truly celebrate Jesus as I play Christmas praise music all day while I work, often stopping to do a little Jesus dance that no one sees but HIM!
THIS YEAR we are in a new and much smaller cottage so my creative spots are fewer but I have a whole new color scheme which has been quite fun.
I absolutely love to share my home with family and friends during this season. I love to serve them and bless them with special treats and yummy food smells.
Since you are my friends and I can’t have you all over for tea and cookies, I thought I would bring you in through the front door for a “heart” visit! So welcome to our little home.
This years colors are neutrals and Tiffany Blue with a good bit of silver sparkle thrown in –Can I just say YUM! The silver trees above catch the afternoon light from a nearby window and make my entire living room look like a disco ball of sparkling light. It was a very unplanned-surprise treat!!
I completely changed my tree decorations this year using black and white pictures from Christmas past.I only made it through printing off about 3 years worth. By the time I was done with just that amount I was a puddle of memories and “where has it all gone” which resulted in my “One the Third Day Of Christmas” post.
The Nativity set above came from Proverbs 31 Ministries and directly from The Holy Land. It fits this spot perfectly. I adore it! Us girls know–it’s not just a nice saying–Jesus truly is, the reason for the season.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit! Tell me–does decorating for Christmas make you want to hide in a huge gift bag or is it a favorite holiday tradition?
Since Tea and Cookies just aren’t PRACTICAL 🙂 Don’t forget my Christmas Give-Away!!
