All Through the House . . .

Not a creature was stirring . . .
except maybe a mouse.
The stockings were hung near the faux fireplace
To lend the room a sense of whimsy and grace

Ahh, the best time of the year: Christmas!  
I love the scent of pine through the house after the tree gets set up.
Putting Up the Tree
I love the twinkling lights, both inside and out.
Outdoor Lights Aglow

And I love decorating the tree with all the lovely ornaments: some handmade, some special gifts from friends and some crafted by wee hands no longer wee.
Handcrafted Porcelain Angel, Tin Foil Bell, and Knitted Stocking

One of a Kind Santa and Plastic Canvas Train
But most of all I love spending time with my boys, and watching the joy on their faces.  Then after the excitement fades to quiet, dear hubby and I sip our coffee . . . 
A Cup of Jo and Toast . . . Perfection!

Hope your holidays are filled with peace and joy. :)


  1. Your ornaments are so cute, I love the little stocking!

  2. Thanks Maggie. I made those a few years ago. Found the patterns while doing a search on Ravelry.
