Christmas at My House

Hi everybody!  It is officially time to kick back and enjoy the holidays.  The decorations are up and most of the presents are wrapped.  Ahhh!  I love it!  All that is left is baking yummy treats and enjoying time with family - the best part of all.

I thought that I would share some pictures now rather than hogging the party on Monday.  So here goes...








 Company is coming tonight and there is lots to do.  Gotta run!

***Revised to say that I didn't make the boxwood orbs.  They came from here and I love them!

  22. OK....where to start. First of all you are my hero. Kids and Christmas decor, plus a party. Whew. Love the navy pillows. My favorite. All of your decor is so very classic and just right. I saw some cute brass candles like that at Goodwill the other day and did not get them...rats.
