Christmas Has Arrived!


Christmas is definitely here on Broadway!  I have a real tree this year, instead of the two smaller artificial trees I used last year on either side of the mantle.  I like the real tree sooooo much better.  It smells wonderful and feels so much more home-y!


I'll try not to bore you with photos of the same things you saw last year.  I'll just show you what's different this year.  And there's really not too much that's different.  You know how you kind of do the same thing year after year?  I tried to do a few new things, but basically, it's pretty much the same.


I had to do some furniture re-arranging to make the tree work in the front of the living room.  I kind of like the new lay-out, but will have to see if I still like it once the tree is gone. 


A sweet and simple peg-rack in my bedroom.


My antique "jewelry box"....it's very empty!!


The kitchen sink!


A vintage snowman, under glass...

Vintage santas, also under glass.

That's about it!  Not too much.  Lots of greens everywhere.  Not a single gift wrapped, or a cookie baked.  But I'll get there.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!
