No matter the size of your home, a lot of Christmas decorating can be achieved with vignettes. I’ve lived in small apartments and condos as well as a larger home. Whether you have room for a big Christmas tree or just a small table top tree, much of your decorations can be achieved with small arrangements on tables, bookcases, and shelves. I love using small scenes to fill a room. This holiday season my living room is a blue and silver Winter Wonderland.Read More
Several years ago I got a really cute thrift store snowman in blue, white, and silver. Last year I never got to use him as I used the blue, white, and silver Santa for my table. I was determined to make a table with him this year.
Several months ago I visited a new thrift store. They have lots of household goods. I wandered around looking and found a set of 4 cute snowman salad or dessert plates for a couple of dollars. I just love snowmen. This is my fourth snowman table.

I put it on my table on a white tablecloth and added my blue Santa with several small snowman. pine trees, and silver ribbon. Small silver glass ornaments are nestled around them.

The last 6 months have been far from normal, and I must admit, I’m not as enthused about the holidays as normal. So today I am doing positive affirmations and remembering the reason for the season. Even after recent events of the pandemic and the worries about tomorrow, we need to start thinking ahead and planning what we can do to make this Christmas a special one even if it’s different. With that in mind, here are some of the things to consider.Read More
I’ve been decorating for Christmas. I’m quite enamored with snowmen for Christmas. Living in Florida, I usually can only make one on the beach with sand. I made a cardboard box snowman the other week, and he is adorable on the front porch. I added wintry Christmas to the dining room with pine cone trees and an angel. Read More
