A Little Christmas Celebration


Hello friends!  Thought I would share some lovely pics from the home of my friend, Ruth Ann. She is so kind to host our women's gathering each year and her Christmas decor is just beautiful! 

Ruth Ann is such a gracious hostess and has a knack for setting a beautiful table for all of us and for placing Christmas decorations in just the right places.

Aren't these place settings lovely? And looking into the kitchen you can see the lights, greenery and ribbon that bring Christmas cheer. 

How clever is this window pane in green that is just perfect for holding small Christmas decorations? So cute! Sorry that I didn't take the picture straight!

Little touches like this red bow under the mirror add a festive touch, don't you think?

And here is her beautiful tree all decorated. I cannot tell you how good the fresh pine smelled. It makes me wish for a real tree instead of an artificial one!

Pockets of Christmas were everywhere. These carolers were handmade for her as a gift many years ago. Aren't they precious?

Family antiques hold holiday decor upstairs. 

And even the bathrooms hold fun Christmas figurines that add to the festive look throughout the house!

Here's a look at some of the women in my women's group. We consider ourselves sisters in Christ and our yearly Christmas celebration is always a time of joy for all of us. We missed two ladies who were not able to be with us this year. And two other members of our group were not there yet when I snapped this photo. The laughter we shared was special indeed! (And the food was delicious too!)

And on another note, here are some lovely flowers The Mr. picked out for me as a late birthday gift. I love the red and white together and have them prominently displayed on the mantel. That's the place I have found that keeps a certain little cat (Cassie!) from getting into them. They smell good too!

I'm feeling a bit bummed today because I feel like I am taking a cold. I'm hoping it will be short-lived. (My home Covid test was negative thank goodness.) I was sick over Christmas last year and I don't want to be sick again this year! I have lots of things I want to be doing and so prayers for a quick recovery are appreciated!

Hope you are well and enjoying all of the Christmas decorations, celebrations and gatherings. I am so thankful for my friends, sisters in Christ, family and special gatherings.

Proverbs 17:17

Until Next Time,

Love your friends decorations. What fun to all get together. I love her corner fireplace. Thanks for sharing your group fun.
