{ in the Christmas Spirit }


No matter how many dips and curves { LIFE } sends our way, the { JOY } of Christmas spirit has a way of making itself known.

It has been a long and bumpy road these past few months but Christmas has arrived and with it, feelings of happiness and blessings.

...take a peek at the the festive decorations that surround us and make us smile...


...a collection of ornaments, old and new, adorn the tree...
 ...a beautiful, vintage, multi-layered tulle skirt...
 ...hundreds of white lights twinkle away...
 ...a touch of bittersweet, and autumn roses...
 ...even the laundry room gets a touch of Christmas...
 ...my vintage { GIRL } is adorned with wings of gold...
 ...vintage blue baubles alight on the Master Bedroom dresser...
 ...tulle, white lights and pink roses make me happy...
 ...and my { PEARS }... never enough pears...
 ...giant silver stars, ornaments and white tulips festoon the top of cabinet...
...soon, Santa will deposit his wares into this antique bathtub...
 ...homemade linen stockings with vintage tea towel cuffs...
 ...a second Christmas tree and a vintage tricycle add charm to a porch...
 ...evergreen garland and white lights are swagged over the hearth...
 ...the mantel is a festive nest of greens, berries, snowflakes and sugared fruits...
...a touch of evergreen surrounds a metal bucket of flowers...
 ...a collection of miniature pine cones that Sophie gathered adds farmhouse charm...
  ...evergreens, crab apples, and a vintage star are clustered in an old white toolbox...
...metal buckets and stars reflect beautifully with the twinkling lights...
 ...more sugared fruits...yum...
 ...another giant vintage star alights atop the stone fireplace...
 ...a small tree, lights, sugared fruit and vintage pearl berries rest atop a vintage style bar cabinet...
 ...a festive corner of the kitchen...
...and so it is with a happy and full heart that I welcome { CHRISTMAS } into my home.
May you have a season filled with all of the richest Blessings of the Lord.

I will linking this "Christmas With White" at White Wednesday.
