A touch of Christmas cheer

This Christmas has been one of wonder and excitement as we decorated our new home. Having a new palette has inspired new avenues.

This is the first house where we have a fireplace.


It's been so fun to have a fire on a cold evening.

Catching some snowflakes and saving them in a bowl.

Listening for Carolers as they sing Glory to God in the Highest.

Little touches of color here and there.

Welcoming you as we light the way into our home.

What a lovely time of year to invite friends and family to share in food, fun and fellowship. Come back tomorrow for a little more of the tour.

Happy Quilting :-)
