Christmas Blessings to All !

Hello everyone,
  I know you are all very busy with all the joys of the season so I am just giving you a quick tour around today. the photos above are of our bath with a few Christmas touches.

This is our family room(photos taken last year but much the same as this year).
Our little garden cottage decked out for Christmas.
Our upstairs sun room of the master bedroom and bath. I love the touches of greenery in it.
Our kitchen before the tree went in the bay window.

our veranda back a few weeks ago when we actually had snow- still raining here but snow flurries at least for tomorrow so they say!
guest bedroom
fireplace in  library
Once again I would like to wish you all  Christmas blessings and some quiet time to reflect on the wonderful gift we were given on that first Christmas morning!

I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday.

Wishing you and yours all the joy of the season!

Hi Carolyn
Your Christmas decorating is so pretty to look at and you have many rooms done up!
If it will make you feel any better, we've not had snow for a few days now and what is left is shrinking. Toronto has none.
Just isn't the same without snow is it? :-)
Christmas blessings to you and family.
