Christmas style books are a great inspiration for home decorating over the festive season. These two are my favourite. A Nantucket Christmas by Leslie Lindsey and Ruby & Begonia's Christmas Style by Sara Toliver and Jo Packham.
For us here the celebrations begin on the night of the 21st December at Winter Solstice and continue until January 6th when we celebrate Drie Koningen
Leiny and I put the garland across the granite pillars in the kitchen and put a pot of gluhwein on the stove.
The beds all had a festive makeover too. New covers and a gingham heart add a touch of cozy warmth, an inviting space to rest after all the cleaning and cooking.
The stove in the living room is really the heart of our home and Mr. Margie spent some time chopping the firewood for the holidays.
A choir of Dickensian Knitted mice spread some festive cheer. I knit these little mice about twelve years ago and each year they have pride of place among the decorations.
Mr. Margie, Leiny and I went up to the Christmas tree farm yesterday and picked up two Nordmann Firs, the smell in the house is enchanting.
