Happy Holidays at Home

We love being in Florida for the holidays and hope to be at the beach on Christmas day.

I decorate just a little in every room and this year, I decided the shell tree would be perfect for my ‘new’ blue bathroom.

I like putting a wreath or berries on the boat, too.

And here’s a quick glimpse of our living room.

What a treat it’s been to get lots of pretty Christmas cards this year.

I decided to put them on the library table, so that we can stop by and pick each one up and look at it again. Lots of cute photos from friends and grandkids, too.

A few special touches in the bedroom, too.

Have a beautiful week filled with JOY!

I'll be thinking of you celebrating Christmas on the beach while we're navigating icy roads here in the North. LOL Have a blessed Christmas, Diane!

Merry Christmas from the mountains. Doesn't look like we will have a white Christmas and that is disappointing.

Merry Monday.

Your home looks so festive and pretty. I really love your bath décor. We live near Lake Lanier and it is fun to see boats/docks decorated with Christmas lights!

How delightful to have a little Christmas in every room!

Lorrie said...

A little Christmas in each room is a wonderful idea. We've been to the beach for Christmas several times in the past, but no longer. It's much too cold here!
Have a very Merry Christmas, Diane. Enjoy the sunshine!

Linda Kay said...

Lovely pictures and I do so wish you a Merry Christmas at the beach!

Carla from The River said...

I love how you decorate each room. I just love the bathroom!!

Enjoy the sun! If you can blow some our way, we could use some. :-)

Or send some with Santa.

Merry Christmas

Have a very Merry Christmas, my sweet friend!
Hugs,

Everything's so pretty and "Christmas-y" without any overload! As I get older I am starting to dread dragging everything out for a few weeks and then repeating all the work in reverse. I think just a few classy touches like yours is the way to go!

Arlene Grimm said...

Lovely!! Merry Christmas!!

Deborah Montgomery said...

We'll be in front of a fire, which is cozy and nice, but the beach sounds wonderful too. Love your little shell tree, and Christmas touches in every room.

Catherine Holman said...

Love your blue bathroom! Merry Christmas! Hugs to you dear friend.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I love all the red - so pretty. And lucky you - at the beach on Christmas. I hope you find something special. xo

Kathy said...

I love your little shell tree. So cute!

Your house is decorated so beautifully. I especially like all the red in your living room.

Merry Christmas, Diane. We have had a wonderful year trading visits. Thank you visiting the Garden Spot. Have a wonderful trip to the beach. You can think of us shivering the cold and the wind, but no snow on the plains for Christmas. See you next year.

Christine said...

Perfect Christmas touches everywhere! Your home is lovely!
Have a wonderful holiday!
Hugs sweet Diane!

pattisjarrett said...

Lots of pretty decorations. I like that it's not overdone, everything looks like it belongs there. I know that takes a lot of work. Our bathroom is vey similar to that color! It's great for beach-related decor. Enjoy your holidays!

LOVE your shell Christmas tree. We have one as well for our bathroom decorated with shells we've found on the beach over the years!!
