Christmas in Our New Home


It's another snow day in West-Central Pennsylvania, so I thought I'd share some pics of our Christmas decorations. I wish they showed how warm and cozy the rooms look, but my camera just doesn't capture that.



Welcome to our home. This is the foyer. The advent calendar is on the closet door, so that dd can easily reach it. The nativity is on the table and the poinsettia was a gift from my brother.


To the right of the foyer is the hallway and stairway. I'm not thrilled with my garlands, but will fuss with it over the next few weeks to make it better.


The living room is to the left of the foyer, through the pillared archway.



The other half of the room


The fireplace, which has really kept the living area warm these last few cold days.


Our tree




One of my many Santas from my collection on the kitchen island. I'm burning my candle daily as part of the Peace on Earth challenge.


A few more Santas on the kitchen counter....it's missing something too, gotta work on that!


Thanks for stopping by!

Peace and blessings,

Lisa

Lisa, your house looks very cozy and with the fireplace you just want to cuddle up and enjoy the decorations. Along with some of the cookies you made.
