This is where I spend at least an hour or two a day. When I am tired of working, or need a feeling of calm or an escape into another world...this is where I come. A very favorite spot in my home. A touch of Christmas makes it even more special..
Sometimes when I'm playing I find Sweet Husband sitting in the little rocker behind me when I hear him joining me by singing one of his favorite Christmas carols. I play badly but he doesn't seem to mind, bless his heart! Sometimes we go through the book....that's what I call Christmas SPIRIT!
This little owl also listens patiently. I mean..where else could I put a "Christmas Owl..?" Do you ever wander around with something you love in your hand...looking...looking...looking for a place, just the right place to put it...in this case, him? Lets just say he "landed there!" :)
A touch of Christmas here and there...
And ice ice skates...always has to be a pair of skates..
These were bought last year and sat on the piano. Hand painted roses with fur tops and sparkling blades..so sweet and a favorite of mine.
Roses are a winter plant and bloom beautifully here in Southern California through December and then must be pruned back...but I have roses all year long...as you can see...
The yellow Poinsettia was one of the twenty five fresh ones I bought on my Black Friday early morning trip to Lowes...and Home Depot..beautiful!
I never did paint that coffee table white! I am still waffling..a Libra you know.. :)
The blue chair that belongs to the late mistress of this home. Notice I added a touch of blue in the lamp shade...made by Cuttest Cottage Lamps. (I had to use the flash so this didn't turn out too well)
A Cup Of Christmas Tea..one of my favorite Christmas stories.. I met my second husband at Christmas and read him this book on his first visit to my home. I wonder what he thought... :) It must have been good, because I met him the first of December and we were married that very New Years Eve. Christmas does that to folks.. I was 65 and he was 70. I had him for just a little over 6 years.
Never too old for toys... Last year I gave my little table to Great granddaughter, Emily..but another one is one the way. Thank you, Bea! I can't wait for it to be finished.
Every girl needs a doll...and...that is my living room.
She has a Christmas dress....somewhere. :)
So this is Christmas....
Love and hugs to you..
