Christmas at Home Made Haven

Last year this little Charlie Brown tree was our it (with the red Christmas ball that has since been broken). No, it wasn't a sad Christmas, just a hectic one with the house torn up with a building project. Decorating just seemed to get in the way. This year, however...

I think I was making up for last year. I took the advice of Brenda at Cozy Little House and grouped all my trees together. It really does make a statement, so thanks Brenda. I had a lot of fun putting the living room together and had great ambitions to finish the rest of the house, but I have to...

Life sure gets in the way. Shopping, cleaning and of course, work have all piled up and I'm ready for Christmas to be over. 

Does that happen to you? Don't get me wrong. I love Christmas, but it seems the closer I get to it, the more I want it to be over. It's not that I'm tired, it's just...

No, not joy... more like anticipation of what the new year is going to bring.

Will my stocking be stuffed with fun and exciting projects?

Or will my wings get clipped and I'll be forced to head back to the corporate world?

I guess we'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, have a wonder holiday everyone! And don't forget to...

Merry Christmas and God Bless,

  1. hi Katherine! Merry Christmas to you! Love your grouped trees, that really is a neat idea. Enjoy!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  3. Great idea, grouping the Christmas trees. Merry Christmas and a bright New year.

  4. I love how your trees look. I have to be honest, I am never ready for Christmas to be over. I love it, but it's the anticipation I really, really love! Don't get me wrong, I'm ready to move on, but I'm always kind of sad the day Christmas comes. I'm glad you're looking forward to what the new year brings. Me too!

  5. Time to take a breather and look forward to new beginnings. Happy New Year!

  6. I'm wishing you a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Your home looks very Christmasy and lovely! I know what you mean about all of the work involved in decorating. I was quite happy to take everything down yesterday!


  7. I got a Charlie B. tree from the kids for Christmas. I am a huge Peanuts fan.
