Christmas at my house…

I thought I would show you some of my Christmas decorating, albeit very small. I took these photos with no flash, at dusk, so they are a little dark..sorry in advance.
This is our huge Fireplace in the Kitchen (makes the best stew in Winter). I always put this garland which has lights through it here. With all the lights off, the glow is amazing. My little wreath is very simple this year with a white ribbon with grey swirls.

Our tree got a huge de-clutter this year. I have just gone with gold, touches of silver and a few coloured/silver balls. I plan to have all gold, clear and silver for next year…oh, and it is a new tree, smaller than the last (from 7 foot to 5 1/2 foot). This window will be one of our French doors soon, so I don’t know where I will put the tree next year.

A big cream and gold trimmed bow, and gold beads, and lots of white lights….

…and a capiz shell star to top it all off.

Oh, and don’t forget my ‘girls’, which sit atop the Fireplace.

We haven’t done too much this year because of the renovations…but I like it.

  • Your fireplaces looks lovely and your tree is just perfect…I keep my tree very simple..I think a tree looks so pretty without too much clutter!


  • Hi Ness,
    I think your tree is so pretty. I love just the few ornaments with color. It’s a wonder you did a tree at all with a little one and renovations!
