Beautiful Christmas party at Jane's.....

After going to church to see the the kids in The Littlest Angel" last evening, I was invited to Jane's for a Christmas party. It was the most beautiful evening -- all crystal-clear so you could see millions of stars when you were in the country. Jane's house glowed and sparkled as you came down her driveway. Her house is always beautiful but never more then at Christmas time.

These were some of her decorations. It's impossible to get the full impact in a picture but I did my best. These are two of her vintage ornament wreaths. They're so gorgeous on her stained and textured walls.




These are some of my battery candles from Leola's. Everyone loved them. They do have such a beautiful glow without having to worry about wax or fire.















This fireplace mantle was unbelievable. The other end of the room has huge windows floor to ceiling and all the lights were sparkling in the dark windows. She has big comfy furniture so you sit down and don't want to leave. We all wished we'd brought our pj's so we could have spent the night. It's just a wonderful house.


Thanks, again, to Jane for giving all of us a wonderful evening in her's & Jim's beautiful home. In this season of all the hurrying and scurrying it's so nice to have an evening to be with friends and just relax -- & laugh.

Everything looks so beautiful! I remember how I was in such awe last year, when you took me to her home. Tell Jane I said "Hi", I sure miss seeing everyone! The kids angel costumes were just so cute!
hugs and blessings for Christmas, Jan,
Debra

Hi Jan! I love this woman's house! The vintage ornament wreaths are screaming for me to take them home with me. It's a good thing I wasn't invited. Not sure how I'd have snuck out with them! Merry Christmas! ~Mindy ps. love the music
