Christmas is HERE!!!

This morning we awoke to one of the Biggest Snow storms to hit the Metro Detroit area since 1999. Thankfully, it is Sunday, which means no one having to rush to school or work. Our church services were even cancelled. So...I decided to use this cozy, comfy feeling that being *Snowed In* gives me...and finish my decorating and do some baking. As I write, the wonderful smell of pumpkin loaves permeates my home! A wonderful feeling as well. I am planning on doing my baking today and just enjoy the fact that I don't have to go anywhere out in the cold!

That leads me share with you my home, as I have prepped it for Christmas. Now this year I have not gone overboard, as I have in past....but I do love the festive feeling that my decor gives me.

My living room is my Victorian Palor. I have a Cameo Mauve colored rug and beautiful floral sofas, with a treasured piano, that my mom gave me. I kept it very simple with vintage ornies mixed with other goodies as well. Enjoy!

The rest of my pictures are of our Family room, and one of my Dining room table. I keep those rooms done with more traditional reds and gold...I like lots a sparkle as my pictures will show you. Thanks for letting me share a bit of my Christmas Cheer with you...I'd love to hear about your Christmas decor and why you decorate the way you do, see PLEASE leave comments!
