Signs Of Christmas Around Our Home

I wanted a very simple wreath this year ~ made a big bow and added a few pine cones and holly.
Candles burning everywhere!

One of my favorite tatted snowflake ornaments from childhood.

The reason why we celebrate Christmas.

Dining room table ready for family and friends.
Little tree that sits atop the sideboard in dining room.

Here's the apothecary jar I was so happy to get in the Fall. It now holds colored balls.

The scent of Yankee Candle's "Mistletoe" fills the den.
I always keep this cup out to remind me to slow down and take the time to appreciate all the beauty and wonder this most blessed season has to offer.

Hi Susan,
Everything is looking very festive and pretty at your house. I like your idea about using the tea cup as a reminder to slow down.

Have a nice weekend,

Love all your beautiful holiday touches around your house!

Thanks for the sweet compliment about that scrapbook I made! I just used Christmas scrapbook stickers from Hobby Lobby; they're only $1.99/sheet and come with a nice assortment. Would love to see if you make one!

Have a great weekend!
