Step In For Some Christmas Cheer

As I sit here cozy in my bed, under my warm down comforter, I listen to rain on the roof and the crackle of thunder outside.  Instead I imagine big snowflakes falling, a cup of hot cocoa in hand, and a crackling wood fire in the fireplace.  No matter where I am, or what is happening outside, the most important reason for the season is to celebrate.  Celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day.  I think about the anticipation everyone must have felt Christmas Eve – the night before he was born.  What a precious gift we all have been given, so let’s celebrate, today… tonight… tomorrow… every day!

With that said, I want to invite you in my home for a little Christmas Cheer!  There aren’t too many pictures for you, but some that I hope you will enjoy.

Grab a cup of hot chocolate…

Do the marshmallows disappear in your house too?

Christmas Bird's Nest


I enjoy bringing the outdoors in, using found objects like this bird’s nest.

Living Room Christmas Decor


My $1.99 wreaths purchased at Michaels gave me the opportunity to

place them throughout the house.

The same wreaths I used on my Adirondack Chairs.

Here you can see the Magnolia Wreath I made hanging outside.

Christmas Stockings


I made stockings this year out of drop cloths, and white dishcloths.

Dishcloths?  Yes!  It gave the right texture I was looking for.

Christmas Mantel


My favorite purchase this year was at Home Goods.

Driftwood for $9.99.

Steal, right?

I used it for garland on the mantel.

      Thanks Betsy! I am so glad I kept the Atlanta Chest too. I think I would’ve been bummed if I had sold it. Enjoy this Christmas day!

      Thank you very much Christina! I love driftwood anything, so the fact that I found it in a garland made me super excited. I didn’t pack it away, I will use it around the house in different areas until next Christmas.

    Hello Angie,
    It’s always so nice to look around someone’s place especially like yours 🙂
    And I also love your photos with such a good composition..
    I’m learning watercolor painting, and I wanted to ask you if I could work on some of your photos.
    At present I feel like drawing one of the above photos – that one with the two apples by the window.
    If OK that will be my winter painting project this year 🙂

      Hi Eunsil, Thank you for the kind comments. You are more than welcome to use my photos for your watercolor projects. I would love to see a picture, if you don’t mind, when you are finished – that would be so neat to see them in watercolors.
