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,

Festive Whites

Hello everyone,
      I am back with a few little touches of festive whites that I have been putting around our home to get it ready for the holidays.I am using my son's point and shoot camera for these pics but the good news is I have a new camera on the way and I can't wait to get it!
  I added some greenery from around the garden to an old chamber set that my father gave to me years ago.I love the little feather trees too

A little church from TJMAXX.

A music box that my daughter gave to me.
A heavy cement cherub sits on our banister. I have added greenery and lights to it and a candle for the cherub to hold-but only for the picture for safety reasons.

You might have noticed that I love angels.
This is a wooden angel that also came from TJMAXX.

Just a peek at some of the little festive touches that are appearing around our home for the holiday season.

It is so mild here that you would not think that it is almost December. The snow that we had last week is long gone and when I step at onto the balcony at night to see the stars you could be fooled into thinking it is spring!

Thank you for visiting me,

Holiday Cheer

Hello everyone,
     Yesterday I shared some of my white Christmas photos from different rooms in our home but today is a warm and cozy look,also from our home.

This is our library/dining room that got a makeover a couple of years ago.

I can't seem to settle on liking just one look so I have a bit of a mix-probably a decorating no-no but it works for me! Once again,I must confess that these photos are last years or the year before.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend,

A White Christmas

Hello everyone,
      It does look like a' White Christmas' here as we have a good cover of snow already. I don't think it will last though as we are supposed to be going up to double digit temperatures in a few days.
 However, as I am still having camera troubles so I went through my old photos again to find some White Christmas photos to share with you-sorry about that!
   I will soon be starting my baking for the Christmas house tour on Dec 10th but I am not quite ready for that yet.
I love a beautiful crisp day in winter.

The sunroom last year at Christmas-it is still on my to do list for this year.
I do love angels.
Our kitchen /dining room.

Hopefully,I will have my camera situation fixed soon and our house decorated for the season and then I will have some new photos for you.

 I love a White Christmas but I also love the warm and cozy colors too and seem to have a mix in our house so tomorrow I will have to share some of those photos. What about you what look do you prefer for your Christmas decorating?

Thank you for visiting,
