Season of Light

Hi Friends! 

How's your holiday season going? 

Not too stressful I hope.

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is "light."

I love the warm glow of holiday lights everywhere! 




It gets dark so early up here, so it seems like Christmas lights come on 

earlier in the day. 




Our lights come on about 4pm.  I love this time because the sky still 

has a bit of color to add to the "magic." 




I light candles, make a cup of hot cocoa,  and simply enjoy the peacefulness of the season 

by the warmth of the fireplace.




I had fun this year with "this old house" we're living in.

We decided to put our tree up in the front room which is what we call 

our "piano room." (since my piano takes up most of the room) :-)




I found some ribbon with music notes on it to add to the theme of the room, 




and since the wall color is sort of a "vintage green" (yea, I kind of made that 

color up.)  I decided to "go with it" and get some new Christmas ball ornaments 

to compliment the color.




We've also been staying busy keeping the birds happy in the cold weather. 

It takes a little work this time of year, but the humming birds stay fed and happy.




So, I hope wherever you are, you are warm and happy too! 





Share in the Season of Light!

I am definitely happy, and I am warm as long as I don't poke my head outside. High temp today was 12 degrees.

You tree is gorgeous, Becca, and the music garland is just perfect.

Have a wonderful evening!

Your little corner of the world looks so cozy and wonderful Becca! It's hard to believe Christmas is mere days away. I too love sitting quietly with a hot beverage and staring dreamily on my Christmas lights. Fantastic beauty surrounds you.
Wishing you a wonderful week my friend!
