Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!

Just a quick picture post and I'm off to join the family for some stories and games....and more food! 

Wanted to show you a few of my Christmasy nooks and crannies in the house--just a little peek here and there!  My favorite thing during the holidays is having all--or most--of the regular lights off, with just the little fairy lights placed on trees and mantles all over the house to light our way...that's how I wanted to show you my home...

My green tinsel tree in the bedroom how it sparkles and shines!

My pink tinsel tree...this one just makes me smile!

My small...but growing...waterglobe collection...

My white kitchen tree...

Our main Christmas tree--I LOVE this angle!

...and of course, the stockings...

Thanks for coming to visit!

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!


  1. Merry Christmas Julie! I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating the birth of the Saviour together! Loved seeing all your Christmas trees and they are exactly as I would have pictured them, beautiful and sparkly and filled with magic! What a beautiful nativity also. May your day tomorrow be filled with joy and peace and love. xxoo

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Christmas trees with us. Your shelves of holiday collections is so beautifully lit. I clicked to enlarge not to miss a thing. I am so looking forward to your creations in the New Year. Merry Christmas to you! Elizabeth

  8. Hey there Jules....I hope you have a lovely Christmas with your family. I am so glad that your daughter made it home safely.

    This is such a spectacular time of the year, isn't it?!

  9. What gorgeous,dreamy images!
    I can't recall how I discovered you today, but I'm so glad I did. I'll surely be back. :-)

    Wishing you and yours a most blessed and Merry Christmas!

  10. Everything looks so beautiful! I hope you're having the best Christmas ever. I am so glad that we have gotten to know each other. You've been a blessing. Merry Christmas! Twyla

  11. I already loved you forever, and still will even if I don't win the Robin's Egg Blue stuff! Your house looks absolutely beautiful!! I didn't make a very good effort. I really don't like the house we are renting, so it's hard to care for it. We don't want to buy until we have tenure, so this is my house. I put out about half of the stuff-maybe next year I'll do better.

  12. Such beautiful and enchanting pictures from your home. I too turn off all the lights and just enjoy the glow of our Christmas decor. Blessings!

  13. Your home is so warm and inviting (as I knew it would be!!). Love all your decorating and I agree ... I leave off the "main" lights and just enjoy the ora of the holiday lights that are in EVERY room of the house. What fun!!

    I have a great time with my kids and I hope you did too! Blessings my dear sweet friend! Love & hugs coming your way ...

  14. Hope your Christmas was wonderful and lots of fun for the whole family! Enjoy the rest of the holidays! Hugs, Coralie
