Christmas Past Once More

Life has been a little busy here lately so I am posting photos once again from the past Christmas. I will be getting into the swing of things next week and will be able to share new photos then. One of my daughter's has just moved into a new home and I have been having fun helping her and her family get settled in. I am hoping to share pictures soon. It does take awhile to make a house a home though doesn't it?

Anyway a few photos of our dining room decorated for Christmas last year.

These are just a few extra photos I threw in from around the house.

I hope you enjoyed another peek into the Christmas Past. Now ,I am taking a few days off -my husband and I are going on a short trip but I will be back next week all hyped for Christmas present. Speaking of present,I am so pleased to have a lot of my Christmas shopping done for this Christmas-early for me!

Hope you have a great week,

Carolyn

How beautiful!!! I REALLY like your room. You have fantastic taste. That is what my idea of a perfect Christmas looks like. You really have captured it! I can honestly say that this is the first time this year that I have felt Christmassy. Thank you for being the one to do that!
Take care

These are the most beautiful pictures! Your Christmas tree was so gorgeous last year. The dining room feels so homey and warm. I love the little lighted houses in your hutch and on the shelves. I bet your daughter just loves you helping them with their new home. I'm sure that it will be beautiful too!

Beautiful indoor scenes, and gorgeous photography, too. It is SO hard to get good pictures of a Christmas tree -- I know this for a fact, as I've never been able to do it!

Lovely...
