It's almost Christmas...hard to believe! It just seems like it's come so fast this year. I took a few pictures around the house since I really didn't have much else to blog today. :) I'll be busy for the next few days getting things ready for out of town guests arriving tomorrow and the Christmas festivities. I hope you and your family have a very blessed Christmas.

This first photo is from the black hutch in my kitchen area. A tarnished glitter "Joy" sign from Bayberry Cove (my favorite place online) with a bowl of vintage ball ornaments and a glittery snowflake. Simple.

This is on our piano. A sparkly fleece snowman and this little tree. This tree sat on the console TV when I was little and was always my favorite Christmas decoration. My mom gave it to me 3-4 years ago and it is my absolute favorite item to put out each year. I love it so much...reminds me of my childhood.

This is one of several nativities in our home. We have a larger one in the dining room and Noah has two in his playroom under his little tree. (Fisher Price and a little "talking" one from kitschy and I love it)

Another area of the black hutch in the kitchen. A simple vintage Christmas postcard and a pink pedestal dish holding silver glitter snowflakes.

A photo in the middle of the Christmas tree. That snowflake ornament is about 10" across. I love it! The red/green/gold glittered berries are big stems, just stuck into the tree branches.

Hi Jennifer,
I was devouring your photos and imagining the heartwarming spirit your house must be full of right now. You add beauty to everything you do. The thing that really sets you a part though, is the love that is so obviously injected in everything you touch. It was the first thing I noticed when i met you at inspired last year and remains in my impressions ever since. Have a wonderful holiday!
Merry Christmas.
