Hey everyone! Why oh why does December always seem to fly by way too fast? My decorating is complete, my shopping is finished, cards are in the mail, packages are wrapped.....but still, I want more time to enjoy the smells and listen to my favorite Christmas carols. Does anyone else feel this way? Two areas of my home do bring me such a feeling of calm -- our sitting room and the dining room. They are actually all one large space, but let's not "quibble." I shared the sitting area in my last post, and would love to share the dining room now. Remember, this is me doing a more simplified version of Christmas decorating.....seriously!
I layered a string of battery-powered cool lights under the faux snow, and it gives off such a sweet glow. The little Putz houses are also illuminated.
Not having our big tree meant that I had lots of Christmas balls to add in here and there.
More reflections......mirrors add a magical touch!
Not too bad for being 10 years old!

This nativity is 44 years old! It's just not Christmas without it.
Just a sneak-peek at my kitchen decor!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Y'all are always welcome here!
