~~Feeling the Christmas Glow!!~~

I am enjoying the Christmas Season SO much this year & am really Feeling the Glow! Some years are so busy & can be stressful, but this year I am just sitting back & enjoying it in a slow, peaceful kind of way. Not too much to do, not too much to buy & loving the simple things. I've been busy making the ornaments for my family's tradition which we have done for many years instead of buying gifts for each other. My tree is covered with so many unique & beautiful handmade items because of this wonderful tradition. This Christmas for me is all about love, much happiness, thankfulness, peace, & remembering what Christmas is all about ~~ I'm loving it! Here is my Christmas Cottage in it's own little laid-back, slow-moving, stress-free, serene happy glow ~~ Happiest of Holidays!

White Roses, Lights, & Candle Glow~

LOTS of Candle Glow~

"Isabelle" in Glowing White Lights & Roses~

"Feather Bird Tree" in the Hallway ~

Old Fashioned "Bubble Light" Tree in the Mudroom~~my Mom made the Snowman years ago!

Norfolk Pine - this beauty came from a garage sale 8 years ago for 50 cents - it was 6 inches tall!

I knew your house would be cute for Christmas! I love that snowman your mom made. So cute. I see you have bubble lights too. I can never get mine to stay upright. Any suggestions? Thanks for visiting me today! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
