"CHRISTMAS PRESENT"


Christmas is always the time
to decorate the home.




Welcome to our home where the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas filling the air!  Time to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus!



This years tree is a White Fir like the last 2 years - this seems to be our favorite type of tree.



In a way "Hark The Herald
Angels" seems like a good theme
here at our house.  It is also a
perfect time to enjoy Old
Country Roses china.




I love Nicole Sayre and added
 a new angel to my collection.


When we come home each evening, the
first thing we do is fire
up our wood burning stove.





These decorations may be
a little over the top but they
sure bring me joy.

Your post/photos/music are beautiful. I glanced at the supermarket yesterday for a magazine to relax with this weekend and decided I would look over blogs for free. And yours was the first one that caught my eye this morning. Thank you for sharing your lovely Christmas and pointing us to the Savior.

Hello Bernideen
Your tree is lovely, as is the table all set on a nice lace tablecloth.
I really like the reflection of the lights from the tree in the window, picture and mirror.

Beautiful Christmas tree and decorations. Your new angel looks right at home with your other lovely ones. Love the way your mirrors reflect other objects in your home.
Looks like we have the same wood stove in our family room. Nothing like wood heat on a cold winter day!
Sorry my post picture always disappears when I join your tea party.

Hi Bernideen,
so sorry that I missed to link in on Saturday. I was busy the whole day and after that I totally forgot.
You made such a beautiful and inviting table. I always enjoy to visit your blog. Next Saturday I am part of your party again.
Best greetings, Johanna
