Christmas in the Sunroom

Hello everyone,
     On this very mild but wet day, Christmas came to the sun room, as I took in some greenery from the woods to add some a more seasonal look to our little sun room.


Candles also add to the coziness.

Winterberries, pine . juniper, holly and an old vintage card added to a pretty white cone brighten the posts between the windows.


How about a cup of tea?
A mix of china patterns, but they all go together well.




Pretty candle holders from the thrift shop.



I love this old donkey- a humble reminder of the season.
The glow at nighttime is so romantic.
I will soon be done decorating our home for Christmas, and I am looking forward to cozy evenings by the fireside with the twinkle of lights and the sound of Christmas music playing softly in the background and a good cup of tea!

I have to do some finetuning on the sunroom tomorrow and I have some paper whites and amaryllis started, for in here as well.

The good news is Santa arrived here early, as a new Canon Rebel T3 arrived at our door today!

Today,I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

Oh, you got your new camera! A lot of bloggers seem to be going with the Rebel. I hope you enjoy using it. Your sunroom looks cozy and pretty with the whites and natural greenery. It was a very warm day here but rainy - almost like spring. Blessings, Pamela

Such a cheery space this is. Your red and white looks wonderful with all the light. I love that cozy china with the wintry scenes. Delightful! Glad your photo problems are solved. I could feel your pain! Ha!

Hello! I just found you from Cottage of the Month! I love your home and your blog! I am your newest follower. I really love your outdoor pitures. My husband just bought me an old wooden wheelbarrow for my birthday. I am very excited to stuff greens and berries in like you did! Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, dear Christmassy Carolyn!

I love, love, love, love, love your sun room - every time you show it to us - I love it! All of the tartan was making me smile - then, this - and I just caught a glimpse of your "Festive whites" post and it's turned my heart to water. Off I go for more happy inspiration! (and, the funny thing is....not a single decoration up, here, yet. Okay, well, one small pre-lit and pre-decorated tree and a poinsettia. This weekend is the choir concert and I have a solo and am focusing! =])

Love to you for all of the fun joy you keep zapping me with!=]

Everything looks so beautiful. My eye was drawn to your beautiful dishes. The same dishes my mom used over the winter months for many many years. The teapot with it I had never seen. The dishes went to my oldest daughter last year after mom passed away and I would love to know where you found the teapot for them. I would so love to have one to give to my daughter to go with moms dishes.

Saw your new pictures on Old Painted House- beautiful is all I can say- sure wish my vocabulary was enhanced so I could lavish better praises!
