My home at Christmas Time

Well, I'm finished!! My tree is finally twinkling beautifully tonight in my little cottage with beautiful white lights and glass ornaments and my dining table is set for a Christmas lunch. I decided to make things a little easier on myself this year, Thomas, my son got all the decorations down from the attic and I had one look and thought, no, not this year, I just don't have the energy to unpack and unwrap all the decorations, so back up they went. I am in the mood for something simple and serene. I bought a huge basket of vintage crystal chandelier drops a couple of months ago so I washed them all and made some extra cellophane ruffles and put them all over our tree with some pretty glass balls and lights and that's all, and my table, well, I picked a few big bunches of green peppercorns from my tree in the front garden and that was it, I used the extra leaves from the bunches on my white organza cloth to accentuate the hand stitched petals and used my favourite glass plates, glasses and etched lanterns and a few more crystal drops here and there.

Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and I hope you have a wonderful time with your family, friends and loved ones and please drive carefully in this Season.

May 2010 be a year of filled with Health and Happiness for you and your family
