a little white christmas...



I really have done only a *little* christmas decorating...I'm having trouble
finding the time and energy to get it done...
so simple is the theme this year.
This is the cabinet in my parlor...we have the tree up ...I still need to finish
the mantle and find a place for the nativity...
we're going to
start christmas shopping today.

You have some of the most gorgeous posts ever!!! I have noticed that reading other blogs that 'simple' seems to be the theme this year. Family and friends is really what it is all about anyway, right?

So pretty. And I have that book-The Birds' XMas Carol. Only my copy is in a faded blue.

Oh my Rene, what decorating you have done is so pretty! The displays in this cabinet are amazing. How I wish I could find a beautiful Bible like the one you have. That is a treasure.

Season and I do look a lot alike. She's me, minus all the wrinkles.lol
You and your younger two daughters look so much alike as well. They have their momma's pretty face.
Aren't we so blessed to have daughters? They truly are my best friends.

So many pretty shades of cream and ivory. I think the simplicity of the scenes makes it that much dreamier.

Just like you do in all decorating, simple and yet so beautiful! Hope your shopping went well.

I like how you have used vintage books in your vignette. I am 'on the hunt' for a few white ones myself.
