Our Library at Christmas

Hello everyone,
      Today,I have a few shots of our library. This year we put our tree in here as it is cooler then the baywindow by the woodstove so we thought it would keep better.
I bought this mirror at a local thrift shop last week for $20. It was the perfect fit for our library.





My little helper-our granddaughter, six year old Jessica.


I am enjoying the coziness of all the lights -I just might have to leave our tree up until all the needles fall off.I can't believe how the time is flying by!

I hope you are enjoying the season!

Today I am joining French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday and My Romantic Home for Show and Tell.

Thank you for stopping by.

Wow such a fat tree that is beautiful and cozy at the same time. The lighting makes me want to sit, drinking hot chocolate and look at the decor. The picture of Jess decorating the tree is priceless.

Your library is so beautiful. And with the tree there it looks so cosy. What kind of garland is it you use? Have never seen it before but it looks nice.
Hope you'll have a nice weekend.
Love Elzie

Love the new mirror you bought, love the decorations, love the tree, love your pictures, love the whole athmosphere. Breathtaking again. A dreamhome to live in or to visit. Is that your granddaughter in the pictures? She must have been thrilled to help decorate and pose for the pictures. Cute girl, love the braided pigtails in her hair.
Bye,
Marian

Carolyn, It's always so magical here on your blog!!! So beautiful!! I also loved the snow pics in your other post! I keep hoping we get snow here every winter! It's only snowed twice in my 51 years so it's not very likely! I still keep dreaming though!
