Honey's Touch

Let me share with all of you, my Honey's lovely addition to our Tree. Yes, we alternate each year on adding this to the tree! I was reminded that it was his turn.....and he was right! So here's our festive tree in its glory!

Are you wondering what is different? Well, it's the beaded garland. Honey loves this and I think it's nice but I guess I just like the simplicity of the ornaments. Either way I love our tree!

Little closer and can you spy, my new find. Let me show you.

Can you believe I found button ornaments. You can't imagine how excited I was. I wish I could give one to all you button lovers out there.......Helen!

This is our small artificial tree we decorate with really old ornaments. They are really treasured glass bobbles and we store them in egg cartons. Here are our tiniest.

Aren't they sweet?!

There are certain items in my house that I have up all year and really don't want to put away for Christmas. So I have started adding little holly wreathes to them to make them festive and ornate. What so you think?

More buttons and polka dots: my favorite hand towels in the kitchen. Can't get much better : )

Took these pictures in the living room where out tree is, but from different areas. This is a new vase which I purchased in Martha's Vineyard. We just love it. Handmade at Chilmark Pottery.

Hope you weren't too bored touring around my house with me. Once again I wish you all a joyous Christmas and the happiest and healthiest New year.

I will be back after Christmas and maybe back on my birthday. Yes, I am an almost Christmas Baby, 27th. (Not counting birthdays anymore though.)

Jack and I send you much Love and Hugs. Hope you all enjoy your families and friends. Be Safe and Be Merry!!!!!
