December came upon us so quickly this year. I took photos of our home throughout the month, but had little spare time to edit and share photos. So before the New Year falls upon us, I thought I would post a few of my favorites . . .
~ early December ~
~ a simple garland ~
~ I love these TWIG reindeer from the Pottery Barn collection ~
~ Hark the Herald Angels Sing! ~
~ My mom bought this for me at a specialty gift shop in Solvang, CA
this year. We named her Abigail, and she found the perfect place
under our Christmas tree. ~
~ Affectionately called "the miracle tree" ~
~ It fell FOUR times!! Twice without ornaments,
and TWICE WITH lights AND ORNAMENTS! ~
My husband and I were awoken at 1:30 am
by a LOUD crash. He thought someone broke in . . .
and I just knew it was the tree . . . and it was! ~
~ Not only had it fallen FOUR times, but its 1500 lights
have had glitches through most of December ~
~ THIS photo was taken when the lights decided to work, lol! ~
~ I buy a Christmas ornament from Apple Farm in San Luis Obispo
every year. I bought several silver bells, and they're still one of my favorites! ~
~ antique tea spoon turned ornament ~
~ I have up to 15 hand beaded snowflakes hidden
among the branches in our tree. They're so pretty lit up! ~
~ my growing mercury glass collection ~
Thanks for stopping by!
Merry Christmas friends and family!
