Well, I have been busy decorating….still…inside and out….
I finished the mantel….but I need to get a good daytime photo!
And while we have been hoping for a dining table as we transform the playroom back to a dining room….lo and behold my in-laws had the table my husband grew up eating dinner on every night right in their basement all along! And it is exactly what I wanted. A cozy, rustic feel.
Amy Chalmers from Maison Decor recommends a wax or hemp oil to bring out the natural tones of the wood. And the folks over at Town Wharf General Store have some polish samples for me to try if I ever swing by to pick them up!

This past weekend I gathered holly and cedar, and pine and beautiful berries from our woods to decorate the doors and gate.
And today, we had a bit of snow….
It is pretty on the pine boughs...
And see the large pine in the photo below? My son went into the woods and cut it down, dug a deep hole, "planted" the tree and strung it with lights. It looks so pretty at night….and equally as pretty covered in a bit of winter white.
That's what I've got!
A quick post…trying to relish the goodness and purity of the season….and wishing you the same.
Peace and Joy to you.
