It's the time of year when images of lovely holiday splendor
swirl through our thoughts.
If you're as excited about the holidays as I am, the weeks leading toward your Christmas Holiday celebration will provide wonderful memorable moments as you and your family work together to create a home that glistens and glows with decorated trees, gorgeous halls that are decked with holly, mantles laden with evergreen and provide wonderful aromas of sweets, cookies and fruit that float from your kitchen. Our homes whether large or small, play an important role in creating an atmosphere of holiday splendor.
Creating beautiful Holiday visions is my passion, and so I want to share a few of my favorite holiday moments with you! I hope the photos below inspire you and your family.
"Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!"
"Dreaming Of A White Christmas.
"Old fashioned sleighs of Holiday greenery.
""Trees all aglow beckon you to sit and relax!
"Stockings hung for one and all.
"Christmas morning, and gifts under the tree.
'Tis the Season for baking!
"Your holiday table is a happy place to gather.
