Creating a Home for the Holidays and Merry Wishes

I must start by sharing my heartfelt thanks to you, my dear blog readers, for your kind and supportive comments during my recent adventure in the ER. Your genuine care is humbling and very touching.  It speaks to the quality of relationships we create throughout the world through blogging. I am not 100% yet but am definitely on the mend and just in time for some merrymaking. The holidays are in full swing and we are in finally in celebration mode around our house.

Are you feeling it too?

My 'Father Christmas' husband Scott has created a veritable winter wonderland of lights to welcome family and friends.

As a reader of my blog I consider you a treasured friend.......

Let's make some merry!

Flowers, candles, sparkly decorations and a fragrant Christmas tree are my holiday favorites to

set the mood for merry making.

Peace, Joy, Wish and Hope....

my holiday wishes.

Our chandelier from our first trip to Paris gets a holiday sparkle.

'Father Christmas' Scott proudly displays his snow globe collection in a cozy nook.

A reading of "The Polar Express" is an age old tradition in our house.

I added this chic little silvery tree to bring a little merry to our bedroom this year.

Family and friends always bring the merry to the holidays for me. We are doing lots of entertaining this season and trying to keep it simple enough to really enjoy it.

"Can I get you a little splash of something?" ;)

Thankfully I survived my stint in the ER last Thursday to host a cozy gathering at the house for my friends on Friday evening.

A splash of bubbly always help get the festivities rolling. You know you are feeling comfy when you are lounging around on the floor.

We had an impromptu 'dessert bar' for family who came into town last weekend. A dessert bar is such an easy way to entertain last minute.

This is just a glimpse of our holidays and I loved having you join me.

I am thankful for you, my dear readers this year, for your kindness, joining the conversation

and the friendship that has grown.

Wishing you and yours a sparkling holiday.

Merry! Merry!


A little sparkle for you or someone you love at my Stylemindchic Boutique!
