Warm Wishes to you and yours......

A little peek into my life this holiday season.......



.....the pretty lights (done by yours truly) until they decided to malfunction and are no longer turning on. They are hand me downs from my Dad, so I am not too upset about it. It didn't take me long to put them up during a mild November day. The ground is now covered in snow so I haven't felt like going out there to see if I can find the problem.

...... my right hand view while sitting on the couch. Yum, that cinnamon candle smells so warm and homey!

...... a cozy little town tucked in a corner.

..... view of my dining room buffet: all of the peacock wrap and ribbons I have collected over the years, turned into faux gifts for decorating with.

...... more peacock displays on my dining room table: plates, ornaments, placecard holders, etc.... The lovely silk covering is actually a window treatment from Pier One! I bought a few of them to use on my tables at Art Fairs.

..... and I certainly couldn't forget about my sweet dogs, who make it hard to get off the couch! Ah yes, your legs make a perfect hammock for me!



Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

So very lovely. I love that you have some faux gifts as decorations. It is really amazing to find so many themed items when you start to look. Whenever I see peacocks I think of you! In fact I bought some feathers from a local farmer this summer when I first "met" you and I see them every day.
Wishing you a wealth of inspiration in the New Year!
Enjoy the day!
