Christmas Musings Around My Home

Decorating has been a huge outlet and source of inspiration in my life. I have always loved beautiful homes and beautiful living. I am not a millionaire nor do I have a lot of money but I do my very best with what I have.

I believe that you should always use your best in life. And I also believe that if you use your best you will be rewarded with much more. These are photos of things around my home. This is my way of "elegant living".

My sitting room. Icicle lights in the windows.

My huge poinsettia from Costco. We buy 3 every year.

The "Christmas glasses". They turn the Christmas lights to stars.

Roses from my husband. I love the rich colors.
