Happy Thursday, dear friends! I hope that you are having a merry week during this Christmas season. We will blink, and it will soon be gone. It is my favorite time of year, and I am savoring every drop of it.
Today, I want to invite you in to show you my living room dressed for Christmas. I adore traditional decor, and I am quite sentimental. Therefore, you will find this room reflects those traits. So come on in, have a seat, a cup of tea, and have a look around. I’m so happy that you, my friends, have stopped by for a visit.
Not much changes from year to year on this tree. It is always decorated with my collection of angels, holy family ornaments, and pretty baubles.
Magnolia garland, plaid ribbons, a magnolia wreath, and my Grandparent’s nativity adorns the mantel.
Not being able to purchase flowers this year, the coffee table is pretty simple, but I still love it. I shopped the house and placed a red ginger jar, flameless candle on a Waterford candle holder, and a depression glass bowl filled with ornaments upon a mirrored tray. I think it creates the perfect Christmas vignette.
My favorite Scottish Santa resides on the sideboard. I gifted him to my Grandfather several years ago for Christmas. When my Grandparents passed, it became part of my Christmas tradition.
Here and there, for another holiday touch, I placed Christmas picks. This is an easy way to decorate without having to put things away.
It is my wish that you savor every minute of this glorious Christmas season. I know our circumstances are quite different this year, but the meaning is still the same. We were given a tremendous gift on that magical Christmas day so long ago. That gift came with hope…a hope that we must all keep close to our hearts. Take care, my friends, and may God bless you all.
