The nook is looking good. I really like your little tree. My daughter wants to come and decorate this weekend and I dread dragging out all that stuff.

Those glowy candles and reflection shots are so warm and inviting and nostalgia-inducing. :-) Beautiful!

This looks beautiful. It's not about how big the tree is or how many decorations go up. This is all about Christ's birth.I do love the decorations and used to do a lot more,but with no one to carry the larger items for me,I have had to scale down a lot.

WOW MS your tiny tree is spectacular. I love the ornaments with the lights and candles...very shiny.

Crazy mom has no decorations up...not sure if she will either since no one will be here for Christmas. She might put window candles up and maybe a few bows but not today it is too cold.
Hugs Madi and Mom

I say it is your house, do what you want to do! I don't have a super lot, and don't decorate near as much as I used to. Just cannot stand the clutter of it.

I love your nook stories! In fact I love all your stories about what is going on in your house. We are not putting our big tree up this year because of the cats. But we have one your size here and it is pre-lit. I have been thinking abut it. But still, the cats would get the ornaments, and it is so small and light... they would dump it over. I really don't care if we put one up or not, but the girls...
Yesterday Sunny jumped up on our living room picture window ledge to watch birds. I HAD a zebra plant on the ledge. The T.V. sits on a cart in front of the window...are you picking up what I'm putting down, as you would say? Sunny dumped the whole pot, dirt, plant and all off the ledge in between the T.V. and the wall. Horrible place to clean, had to move the T.V. then all the huge wires, dirt everywhere!!!

I think it's lovely- it's not the size, it's the spirit!

Deb said...

You're tree is greatly decorated. I like the fact that you are going with smaller trees, that way they are decor in your home, and not a big obstacle, which you would have with a big tree.

I really like your little Christmas tree and the elegant look of your nook. The colors of the candle photo are gorgeous.

I really like the candles reflecting in the mirror. It's beginning to look like Christmas at your house.

Susannah said...

Very, very pretty...but simple. I love that look. Alot less work but yet sophisticated! Your silver glass tree top is a beauty!

Blessings,
Susannah

Betty Manousos said...
