Cozy candlelight at Christmas!

It won’t take anyone long to look at my living room to see that I LOVE the cozy feel of candlelight. I love the time of year when it is snowy out a balmy 50° outside, sitting by the fire, and having nothing but candle light glowing while you chat work on your computer, with your someone special. In my case … that would be with Mr Man.

Mr Man!!!

Now, what was I saying? Oh yes … I love the Christmas candlelight, the lights glowing on the Christmas tree, the soft Christmas music …

I am very traditional when it comes to holidays. I still have most of my decorations from when my babies (who are now 32 and 31) were born.

I have to repair them every once in awhile, but they still live on!

A tradition that we do every year?  A new ornament.

The children were given their ornaments when they were married and had Christmas trees of their own.

Miss Precious is into it as well. She made us the “Pink” one (her favorite color) that is hung in the middle of our tree.

I am thinking I need to make buy some Christmas colored pillows!

It is gloomy outside … which is typical for November but definitely not December! No snow on the ground with this unseasonal weather.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care (or if you can’t find two of your hangers … they lay in the bike basket by Santa until they are found)

Just bein’ real here  :)

“How is a gallery wall cozy?”, you may ask.

Think family.

All snuggled together amidst red poinsettias.

Definitely cozy!

My favorite place will always be this stairwell. I love the openness of it and the many ways it can be decorated.

And my VERY BIG candle.

Decorating with my dear SIL (son-in-law) is always an experience!

He is tall, so he tends to decorate higher than we do.

LOL  No he is not a giant … he just has fun making us look UP.

Thank you for dropping by my home. I hope that you will have time to do it again sometime soon.

Praying that you all have a wonderful Christmas with those you love!

Hugs,
