Festive snippits . . .

When looking at my photos here, I'm a little embarrassed at how little I decorated this Christmas!  Especially after seeing all of your beautiful homes decked out to the nines!  But my home still feels cozy and warm with just the few festive touches.  I'll miss the decorations when they're put away for another year. 

I found a BUNCH of brush trees on sale that I bleached white yesterday.  I think I'll sprinkle some glitter on a few.  How should I display my forest of trees next year since this one is very, very lame! 

The big tree is all white, silver and blingy just like the little tree that I showed earlier.   

Since we had Christmas on Saturday, we are finished for another year.  My main man and I will be alone for Christmas Day.  First time.  I'm kinda sad.  

But I have good news!  My daughter Megan got engaged a couple of weeks ago!  I'm sure you will be hearing alot about wedding plans!  Any wedding tips, tricks and ideas will be greatly appreciated! 

May you all anticipate with wonder the coming of Christmas.  Act like a kid again!  Be gracious and forgiving with family.  Eat like it's your last meal because come January, it is back to beans and rice and rice and beans!  And believe in your heart the cliche' - Remember the reason for the season!

Christmas Blessings to you all!

Will you send me you snail mail addy via my email? It will obviously be late,,,,but I'll send you something to hang on your tree NEXT year!

Congrats on the Engagement! I think we're at a time of our life when there are SO many family changes,,,,kids grown,,,,homes of their own..it's hard to break with old traditions!

Create NEW ones! Do something different this year,,,,stay in your "Jammies" eat Chocolates and watch old movies,,,,or play an old board game,,,,have a Fancy Breakfast,,,,,whatever! Switch it up, it'll be different, but memorable......and in a few years,,,more grandkids/new homes/new traditions!

I think your displays of Christmas are wonderful! I have only one little table and a small tree decorated this year. Some years are just like that and after Christmas I'll be glad I don't have so much to put away! We will too be alone but, on Christmas Eve. Actually looking forward to a little down time.
Enjoy the rest of the season and have a wish fullfilled New Year!

Your home looks just beautiful to me! A perfect mix of silver and white. I love those brush trees - do you literally dip them in bleach?

Congratulations to Megan, how exciting!

Wishing you a Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year.

Everything looks lovely...and I don't think your trees look "lame" at all, I think they look fun all massed together like that :)
I love that bag hanging with the fun twigs sticking out too.
Merry Christmas...I pray that you and your hubby will find a special way to spend your quiet day.
Blessings, Laurel@chippingwithcharm
