Its Beginning to look a lot like Christmas

“This will be a sign to you.  You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”  Luke 2:12

Dear friends,

May Love and Joy come to you this Christmas!  I have so many yuletide traditions and I rarely change my decorations.  There is a lot of love associated with many of my ornaments especially those made by a child’s hand.  My Mother made Christmas so special…memories that are so precious and I relive them every year in my memory.  Draw near to those you love and treasure the times you share. 


I always use live wreaths for every window on the front of my house.  I embellish my door a bit more to welcome my guests.

This doll is more than forty years old.


In the afternoons, Bob and I enjoy our coffee in Christmas mugs and a cookie on the side.  Why not set it up special!


And the children need a little treat from time to time!

I try to keep my design and colors harmonious throughout my home as it is a very open design and I “try” to make it flow.   There is a lot more to come but wanted to check in.  I will return to decking the halls!  May love and joy fill your life this Christmas season.

  1. Dianne,
    All of this talent is just “above and beyond” ………would be more than I could decide upon to say which is my favorite pic, but I really love your welcoming door! Anxiously awaiting your “ lots more” to come.

  2. Dianne, what a beautiful welcome on your front door, truly stunning! I love the doll with the candle and the gorgeous tartan dress. The red church is truly lovely. I will be anxiously awaiting more❤️
