Blissful simplicity.......


An understated,natural Christmas........


means you can start early....



and add touches to every room in the house......



without spending anything at all & you can enjoy it longer.....



no glitz no glam here......and I wouldn't have it any other way.






Have a lovely day.....think I am going to go do a Christmas mantle.....you'll be sick of me in no time......x0x0

gorgeous. gorgeous. gorgeous. I love the natural hints of winter and Christmas. I'm not doing any glitz and glam either. In fact, I donated all my past decorations etc. last week to the gw.
It looks so cozy and pretty around your home already! You know I can't wait to see the mantle redo. :)
Happy Holidays...crazy isn't it!
Hope you're well ~

I am loving simple, white, natural. That is what I did a post on today, minus the natural, that is. We mainly have deciduous trees around us, so I can't do the natural until the Christmas tree lots start up. Then I am hoping I can beg some scraps off of somebody.;)
Hugs, Cindy

Oh this is so very Franske Stemninger and I LOOOOVE it!! Everything is paired and balanced beautifully. Really beautiful, Chrissy. I want to thank you for leaving me just about the most heart warming, compassionate blog comment I've ever received! xoxo! I just love opening up my blog and see that you've posted some new decoration!! And I've heard of Avene skin products - I've ordered samples and they are nice! I've just started using the Aveeno skin cream with the Shitaki Mushroom extract in it and I'm happy with it... my skin has always been so sensitive. Your posts are a gift, too!
