A Relaxing Christmas

That's right.  I'm cruising into Christmas decorating.  No rush, rush.  No bigger, better. Just taking my time, and enjoying the spirit of the season.



I'm sticking with a smaller tree this year, and, it's almost done. I'll be adding a few more of my hand painted wooden hearts.  I'm also working on a topper.  I'll share when I'm completely done.





I'm still going through decorations,




and sprinkling touches here and there.




Feeling festive, and, relaxed.

Are you finding a little peace and calm this season?  You should.


See ya soon.

Hi Rosemary. Hope you have a happy holiday. Love our wooden stars. Too bad one is not a give-away. LOL. Judy

Your tree looks so pretty, Rosemary! I'm definitely more relaxed this year and doing the decorating more simply. It feels good to know "that's it" and not have to feel I need to put a whole bunch of décor out. Especially when it seems to be coming up so fast this year.

well our hearts must be beating at the same time …
sounds just like this house … slow, steady, reflecting a lot

hope you and your family are blessed beyond measure

Your little tree is gorgeous Rosemary! I love your ornaments:) Taking it slow is good. So many people are struggling to get by right now that I think it makes us all stop and realize what the season is truly about:)

I love what you did with the hearts and that ruby colored decoration is exotic. I will not have even a little tree this year as all my X-Mas decorations are packed. Next year I hope my doggies and I are closer to you. You are wonderful. xoxo

Lovely decorations dear. I am enjoying the magic of the season. Finding the calm is a bit more challenging however I am doing my best. We did get 10" of snow overnight. December Delights...

I'm not going overboard decorating either, Rosemary. I don't have the time, space or desire, but I am enjoying the little touches I'm adding.

Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas full of love!

I totally agree with finding peace during the holiday season. I went with a smaller tree last year. Yours is lovely. Hope all is well with you.
