December 17, 2013

Hello Everyone!   Christmas and EVERY single thing about this time of year is pure JOY to me!  I want to give you a little tour of our Christmas home.  Merry, Merry ya’ll!

The letter “B” for Bryson and, all of our names…..Happy plate display in our kitchenOH!  I just CANNOT get enough of our Christmas card display!  I LOVE receiving these cards from cherished family and friends! Our tree in the kitchen….stocked full with lots of homemade ornaments from the children….memories for years to come! A sweet boy napping….my favorite “decoration” this year
My talented mother gave me this beautiful dish she painted….isn’t this awesome?  A fresh centerpiece….no cost because I picked all of this straight from my yard….pretty colors too! Sorry that this picture came out a little dark…..but, I wanted ya’ll to see our dining room light fixture…all “done up” for the seasonThis is such a treasure!  My mom-in-love gave this to me years ago and, it belonged to her mother.  Ruby red antique glass punch bowl….I LOVE using it all season long! The coffee table in our living room….nothing like a bowl of fresh Granny Smith apples….these really look good at any time of year A table display in our family room….Joy!   This describes how I feel at this blessed time of year…..overwhelmed with JOY! I have been collecting nutcrackers for many years.  As a girl, I used to dance in this wonderful ballet, at the local dance studio.  We have an amazing production of “THE NUTCRACKER” in Memphis each year….awesome!  I love the colors of these wooden soldiers. A display of gold and silver trees on the top of a chestChristmas pillows…..ahhhh…..I love Christmas pillows used all over the houseA white manger scene, sitting out on a table in the sun roomLots of gold!  The mantel in our sun room Another Christmas pillow and, I ADORE reading Christmas time magazines!  Why not keep them on display?  This bench is right by the back door. Another thing I love….Christmas hand towels.  I have received these over the years from sweet friends, as gifts.  So cute and festive! Don’t forget the Christmas soap!  This makes hand washing smell divine! Christmas cookbooks….set them out on display in your kitchen.  I have sticky notes to mark the recipes that I will prepare during the season.More fresh fruit…..my children LOVE apples and, they are also so pretty to decorate with- this is in our kitchen My good friend, Courtney Frazee shared this idea with me last year….a hot cocoa bar.   This sits on the island and, on those freezing days….my children love a good cup of cocoa.  I enjoy hot tea and, this way, all you need is the hot water and, you are set!  Thanks Courtney!  This candle is my MOST favorite!  Of all the Christmas candles…..this is SO “yummy”A sign to greet our friends, right as you enter the back door

Merry Merry Christmas!   Jesus is the reason we CELEBRATE!

WITH FLAIR AND JOY,

Beth
