Simple and Cozy for Christmas

Merry Christmas Friends,

In less then a week,
we'll be celebrating Christmas.

For some, 
we'll  be home for the holiday's
for other's,  traveling will be on the agenda.

Wherever you are
wherever you go~
May the light that drew many to the Christ child,
 born in a manger,
be your light this Christmas and beyond.

I'll be home right here in this cozy space with family and friends.
Enjoying the nature  placed on my mantel this year.
Can you see the sweet little silver birds below?
Oh they are so cute sitting in a nest with greens and berries.

Cardinals are one of my favorite birds
so I love to have them around during Christmas.
This one is a musical figurine sitting in a little bird cage.
He sings because he's happy,
He sings because he's free.

Curled up to relax and reflect upon the end of another year.
Thankful for so many blessings too many to count.

Cozy pillows and throws to cuddle
while watching movies or sharing great conversation.
A stack of Christmas books to enjoy in the evenings.
Of course topped by another sweet Cardinal.

Vintage ornaments to remind us of days gone by~
Ornaments from WWII. 
Many were my parents ornaments from some of their first Christmas trees.
They married on December 22nd 1945
They are celebrating 70 years together in heaven.
And no, 
I'm nowhere near 70 years old,
 in fact a long way from it. LOL LOL!!!

We will be enjoying the glow from this beautiful vintage
ceramic tree hand painted in the 70's by my mother.
The photo doesn't do it justice.
She added snow with lots of glitter.
Yes glitter, before we all were adding glitter to everything.
Mom was ahead of her time!!

See the darling teacup coaster on the end table?
It's  hand sewn by my sweet blog friend Kitty who I met a couple weeks ago.
You can visit her
I love this coaster Kitty.

Lastly, but certainly not least,
we remember the reason for the season
and the birth of the Christ child.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

with many

See you Monday to share my piano room!
