Our Favorite Things: The Warmth & Beauty of Christmas

Living Room: The place where we gather to open birthday and Christmas gifts and a place where we can sit quietly and think, our living room is a heart of our home. The mantle reflects the changing seasons and occasions.

Living Room Mantle - a Heart of Our Home

No matter how blustery it gets outdoors, it's warm inside a home that is decorated for Christmas. Bless all who live, visit, and gather here. 

Our Christmas tree holds a treasury of sentimental ornaments.  My favorites include an elegant collection of Lenox ornaments, a fun grouping of pewter and wooden Disney ornaments ... each with a memory of gift-giver or occasion attached. 

Symbolic of our three son-shines, many ornaments are grouped in threes: 3 Pottery Barn snowflakes, 3 silver stars, 3 snowmen, 3 Lenox crystal birds, 3 crystal angels, 3 white doves, 3 jovial red Santas ...  and assorted ones the boys made in preschool. When the children have their own homes one day, each will have an ornament to take for his tree to match those of his brothers.

 Each ornament is unique and treasured.  Over the years, though, Lenox and Pottery Barn ornaments have become some of my very favorites. Pottery Barn's mercury glass collections of ornaments add shimmer and sparkle to any tree.
