It's beginning to look...






a lot like Christmas!
...a very simple Christmas...


Following an Argentinian tradition,
the Christmas tree came out of solitude
on December 8th and will stay up
until January 7th...











The vintage ornaments
that won my heart a few years back
are this year displayed inside bowls...









urns...







and under glass cloches...










The good wishes have filled the room...







and even my "corner guy" is ready...








A little shopping,
lots of good food
and definitely no stress!
I try to keep it simple,
whatever is done...is done
whatever is not...
I can always "get it right" next year!






"The perfect Christmas tree?
All Christmas trees are perfect! "

Everything looks so nice and festive! Do you have Christmas music playing as well? Love the old ornaments, are they the old krugels? I have a Christmas tree, actually had it for a week, but it is still in the family room looking very natural, as in "not" decorated! Hopefully I can get to it BEFORE Christmas!

Take care, Sue

Very pretty decorations. I'm still slowly getting into the spirit. I think having two booths full of Christmas has taken all the fun out of it for me with my home.....and all I can think about is that I have to take it all down..ugh!

Enjoy your week.

Love your blog! I noticed today that you have a chandelier like ours. Mine was from my in laws home,
when they moved. We painted it white and distressed it a bit. I couldn't believe it when I saw yours! Merry Christmas! Angela
