OK.  I do believe I am ready to now enjoy the fruits of my labor(s)!
I have been since Thanksgiving, cleaning, placing furniture and trying to decorate for Christmas all within the same time frame.  We are hosting my husband's office Christmas party this year.
It seems that preparing for this has been never ending.
Here are a few pictures of Christmas 2012.




I hope that you are enjoying the process of your decorating and that you enjoy all you have done!


  1. I did the same thing last year with just one room, wow, so much work. Everything looks amazing. Beautiful decor and your Christmas looks fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  2. Hi Mary,

    You must have sneaked on while I was updating. Thank you for stopping by. It is crazy how when you are all done decorating it seems so little for all the work you put into it.

    Hugs back, Chlvie

  3. Chlvie your home looks so beautiful, I'm sure the party is a success with all your lovely things to help ring in the Holiday!
    I just posted my things on my blog Rena Designs, stop by and ck it out if you get the chance. I know you are having fun sharing your home with Family and Friends. Merry Christmas!

  4. Just looking back at old Christmas posts. Your home was so pretty last year. Love all the candle light. :)
