Since we moved here three years ago, I have simplified my Christmas decor in a big way. Besides the decorations for our tree, I mostly use fresh greens here, there and everywhere!
This wooden toolbox was made for my husband by his great uncle, Arthur. He’s 95 now and one of the funniest and kindest people ever – we all love him so. Long ago I confiscated the toolbox for decorating purposes and this year it’s storing all my gift wrap supplies in a corner of the dining room.
The penny tree is a new addition which I’ll share with you soon. I love how it shimmers when the mantle lights are on.
Giving, making time to visit with family and friends, enjoying the sights and sounds and smells of Christmas, and most importantly, celebrating the real reason of the season….that is what it’s all about!
Whether your home is simply or spectacularly decorated for the holidays, I hope that you soak it all in, and enjoy this season of light!
Tomorrow on the Tour of Homes, don’t miss the stunning southern home of Amanda at Dixie Delights!!!
