O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

Our Christmas tree is decorated and now it's feeling more like Christmas.






Here are a few more photos I took early this morning.







A bit more embellishment on the fireplace mantel.

Oh my goodness Donna, this is so lovely. The tree looks almost enchanted, as if it was painted into the photograph.
You will have such a wonderful Christmas; this is simply beautiful, I am in awe.

Simply stunning Donna. I love the bench in front of the fireplace too. So cozy.

Deb said...

That bench looks like the perfect resting spot in front of the fire! Your gorgeous hand painted Christmas cards will be treasured keepsakes. And then there is Otis & Riley's stockings which I thought were the sweetest little stockings ever! I'm sure Santa will be filling them to the brim :-)

Donna, your decoratations are beautiful! My favorite is the oranges and the candy canes. They remind me of waking up Christmas morning and finding them in my stocking. How amazing that something as simple as an orange in your stocking could make a child smile...wonderful memories!
Hugs,
