Tis the Season…

We finally decorated the house with our holiday treasures that have been in hiding all year.  So, today the Holiday music was playing, cookies were baking and the colors of Green, Red and White were everywhere!  Much to still do, & to share with you. But for today, here is a little snapshot of the excitement around here!

Happy Holiday Season to you all ~ To see what I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie

I'm off to get my tree tomorrow so I can catch up with the Christmas fun. Your garland looks wonderful and I really like your little bird in the branches. Enjoy the season!

At least your dog watched. Mine jumped in the neigbor's plow truck and he took her plowing. Guess she wasn't in the Christmas spirit.

Your decorations are so beautiful. My Mom had a santa, snowmen, and angel candles when I was little. Everytime I see one I remember those times.
