It's Beginning to Look a Little Like Christmas

Today I put on my Christmas CDs and began the decorating, starting with the mantle in our TV room. I took down the picture that usually hangs there and put up these green plates, some greenery, a string of bright red apples and Mr & Mrs Santa which were painted by a friend of my mother's and I really cherish them. It will look very cosy when we have a fire and light the candles. Here is a close up so you can see some of the detail in the painting. They each sit on a box that is a music box and when you wind them up Mrs. Claus plays Jingle Bells and Santa plays I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas.

I have a teapot and cups and saucers that match the plates. Sometime in the afternoon after I finish trimming the tree in the kitchen I'll put the kettle on and we can share a cup of tea together. See you then!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day to comment about Anne of Green Gables. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will come back and visit again soon.

    I notice that you live in Charlotte. I lived there in 1974 when I was first out of college and just married. Being from the North it was kind of a challenging transition and we only stayed about a year and a half. I imagine it is very different now and sometime I would love to come back and visit.


Thanks so very much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always read every one. I am glad you stopped by for a visit. Hope you'll come again!
