Hello, dear friends!

I'm back with the final pictures of my Christmas Decorating!

Since it is an overcast and chilly day here in CA, 

these pictures are very appropriate, since they show Christmas lights and candle glow!

My tree, all lit up for Christmas!

White lights and simple ornaments make it so special!

My Santas, reindeer, and lighted house, with soft candle light!

The reindeer are peacefully grazing by candle light!

My Harold Turpin house looks so inviting and casts a soft glow on my Arnett Santa!

And finally....

I love how the candle light creates such a beautiful glow on this vignette in my old dry sink!

I hope you have enjoyed your visits with me and that you have been inspired a wee bit!!  

I know I love seeing how others decorate......it sometimes helps me to "think outside the box", and 

try something new,

or just rests my busy life by slowing me down and letting me relax,

so much needed in our rushed lives!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit with me!

It has truly been a pleasure to get up everyday and post.....something I have not felt in a 

very long time!!

Wishing you all "Brightest Blessings" this week, my friends~~
