The Most Beautiful Time of the Year

I sure do love Christmas time.  I love the songs and the decorations, the good smelling candles that you seem to only pull out at this time of the year.  I love the thoughtfulness that everyone show's to neighbors and friends.  I love it all, well almost all of it, I'm not a real fan of
the cold weather, but that will pass all too soon also.
I put out my stockings after adding some blue sweater fabric to them.  The stockings are made out of two hand towels that I picked up at the craft store.

Grandma cutting paper dolls with her granddaughter is what Christmas is all about to me.

This is my beautiful ceramic Christmas village that I got years ago.  I love it so much, if you look closely the details almost make you feel like your in that small little village on Christmas eve.

On my tree some of my favorite ornaments are the violin's.  I picked these up at a craft store that was going out of business for just penny's.

This isn't a good picture of the poinsetta's, but I have them all over the tree and love them.


Christmas wouldn't be complete without a group of carolers. 
The light in the lamp even works, so sweet.


           In my family room I decorate with the more old fashioned Christmas decorations.  Santa, carolers, and a banner in traditional colors. 
This buffet is next on my list to redo in January, I can't wait to get my brushes on it.



    Happy Holidays to All
