The busy season....

It's been a little crazy in my life the last few weeks and I'm sure most of you have the same issues.  Why do we let it get so hectic every year.  This year is even crazier because the house is on the market.  My realtor scheduled an open house this past Sunday so I was on a deadline to get the house decorated.  I think that was a good thing....it's done!


I decided to keep my mantle simple but I may cut some greenery from the yard to add....



This is the tree in the great room...


This is the smaller living room tree that I fill with some of my vintage ornament collection....


More of my living room and dining room.....





It's so nice to have it completed so maybe I can have friends and family in and not feel overwhelmed.  My grandson, Sage, also has his 14th birthday (crazy) and all the g'kids have concerts at school and church.  That's my favorite part of the holidays.

Hope all of you will take time to enjoy the holidays.  I think this year, more then any year I can remember, we need to feel some peace in our lives.  I'm sincerely wishing this for all of us and I'm going to do my best.
