Merry Christmas!


Here are a few photos of this year's decorations.  I can't believe this year's holidays are already upon us.  One day there were 125 days to go and now there are 2 days left.  What I love the most about our decorations is that they all come from different parts of the world.  Whenever we are on holiday we try to find a decoration for the tree or the house from abroad.  Every angle of the tree brings back lovely memories.  We don't colour coordinate & just go with it.  I also have all of the decorations from the ornament swap & my lovely friend Mandie on the tree this year so it is very spacial.

Also if you have had a long day & want a laugh, read THIS story about a turkey I cooked a couple of years a go.  I'm sure it will put a smile on your face.

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year, wherever you are.

Happy Holidays my new friends.

Wish you all the best,

  3. oh Lily, I love the sweet outdoor light with the red bow and the bowl of ornaments. Lovely!

  4. Your decorations are beautiful! I especially love all the snow globes and your tree topper! Just beautiful! Have a wonderful day!

  5. Your decorations are so pretty! I love your snowglobe collection! There's something magical about that snow swirling around inside the globe. I have a very beautiful snow globe that a friend of mine gave me for Christmas and I just love it. My husband gave me a lot of miniature snow globes with dates on them that I sit on my window sills every year. Your tree topper is also very beautiful!

  6. Such lovely decor! The centerpiece is wonderful, love trains around the tree. Thanks for sharing this pretty post in the Christmas in July party. :)
