Snowmen love...

I absolutely love snowmen. So much so I have turned over my hall/library to them at the holidays. They just seem to fit in here amongst all the books.

I did add a couple to my collection this year, including this adorable doorknob hanger and this lovely giant snowman below (he was a gift). The big guy is actually brightening up the TV room because there wasn’t any place for him in the other room. But he works perfectly in that corner. 

Wishing all of you a lovely weekend...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

This past weekend I finally had time to finish decorating for Christmas. I love it when the house is scrubbed clean and decorated just so, don’t you? It makes me feel settled and peaceful and blessed when I look around.
I’ll give you a tour of all my decorations over the next week or two, but I thought I would start in the living room, which is my favorite, and all decorated in pinks and metallics. This room has another mini tree, but I’ll show you that in another post.
Wishing all of you a lovely day...

The beauty of pansies...

Happy December, everyone. I simply can not wait for the weekend to get here ~ I am dying to clean my house and finish my Christmas decorating! Winter has definitely arrived at my house, with temps dipping below freezing and finishing off my lovely plants for the season. All except for the pansies, of course, which are blooming away merrily. I love how bright and cheery they are, no matter how cold the winter days and nights get.
Wishing all of you a lovely day...
