Christmas Mosaics

It is time already for Mosaic Monday again so I would like to join in. I am on a Christmas theme again and I confess they are last years photos as it will be another week or so before I will be ready to decorate for this year but I am looking forward to it.

What about you -are you looking forward to decorating too?

Hope you enjoyed seeing these mosaics of our home and lots more at Mary's beautiful Little Red House.

Also,since these are photos of our home and little garden 'cottage' I would like to join in on Cielo's Show off your Cottage Monday as well at The House in the Roses also a lovely place to visit and see all the pretty cottages.

I hope you enjoy your day
Thank you for visiting.

Morning Carolyn

A bit too early for me to start thinking of Christmas. Since my children were little I have always waited until after my son's birthday on November 28th even to think about it!!

I can't wait to see your ideas and I might copy some here in the UK!!Last years ones look great.

Jackie, in wet and windy UK!!

I have to get my decorations out this week and see what I have. I gave so much away when we downsized; at that time it was the right thing to do I guess.
Have a nice week.

Carolyn, I am getting in the mood to decorate for Christmas, but like you, I'm waiting a bit.

Your lovely photos are encouraging my eagerness.

Wonderful! The doll is so pretty; love her! I have my tree up but not decorated just yet. Music is on and I'm just doing a little bit at a time. I have started a bit earlier this year because my son is coming home earlier this year. Can't wait to see him!! Have a lovely day.

Dear Carolyn,

As always Carolyn, your beautiful mosaics are a delight. I really love your garden cottage and all you have done in there. The candelabra in front of the mantel is so pretty.

Gorgeous Christmas mosaics Carolyn!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Beautiful Christmas mosaics! I always love the warm glow of the holidays and you've captured it beautifully in your mosaics.

Ofelias Hus said...

So many beautiful pictures...I really do not know anyone that takes so warm and nice pictures as you!

I think you should make a book of all your with your
garden and all the flowers...and one with your interiors....

Here in Sweden two blog-girls just did that...and it sold out the
first and the second print so now they are printing a third time...

A real success !!

I am really exiting about the Christmas decoration...I think it makes the long and dark winter a bit shorter.

Warm hugs to you and your family,

Love Claudie
