Christmas Around the House

After my daughter was determined to make my 'Noel' into 'No Elf' on my secretary, I decided to change the word to 'grace'...so appropriate, isn't it?
Here 'grace' is written on a little chalk board in this herb box centerpiece in my kitchen.

...and again, on the tree made from old blocks for the playroom. 
His grace and mercy abound...
The little lamb was placed under the tree to keep Christmas in perspective...
I purchased the typewriter stamp set from Restoration Hardware.  The children made Christmas tags for our gifts.
My youngest daughter received this lovely tea set and doll (Cath Kidston) along with a stroller from Santa. 
Hats and scarves seem to grow on my chairs.  My daughter tied this one to the chair as a little spoof on me for all my decorating...I think it was very clever! 


Thank you all for your kind words about our yellow Lab, Toby.  My whole family found comfort from your kindness.  He is sorely missed!

  I will be posting the rest of 'Christmas Around the House' throughout the week, with a few projects I did during the holiday.   Time slipped away, despite my best efforts.

(I made the 'G' in the first photo with modge podge and a wooden letter from Hobby Lobby.  One of the Christmas cards we received had the polka dot liner in the envelop.  I loved it, so traced and cut the letter out and glued...simple, but cute!)
Best Wishes to you in the New Year!
Pin It Now!

Christi, stopping by to say hi and wish you and your family a Happy New Year! I'm sad to hear about Toby. It's sad to say good bye to a family pet.
Tell you daughter that her decorating touch is very clever. I may just copy that idea. ;-)
Hugs ~ Sarah
