Deck the Halls

IMG_3278The joy of the holidays continued last week and more to come this week.  Admittedly, I’m not the outdoor designer. However, given some garland, lights and ribbon I do my best…in 27 degrees.  No matter the weather it’s always joyful to bring the Christmas magic…indoors or out.

Inside the entry to this warm home you are greeted by a little Christmas on most surfaces and on everything where CHEER can be strung.

And finally, the family tree is resplendent in all it’s red and green glory.  More than 25 years of Christmas memories and hundreds of ornaments adorn a fresh fir wrapped in ribbons, glass garlands and sparkling lights. The joys of the holidays and the love of community and family are seen in every treasured decoration.

Mercy, all that decorating worked up a powerful hunger.
