Welcome In!



To our home all decked out for Christmas!



I made a few changes to to the Living Room since you've been here...



 We swapped our old coffee table for this redwood burl beauty we scored at a garage sale earlier this year.



Hence, our Lodge Luxe Christmas Decor!



This is the first year we have used this brown flocked tree we purchased at Z Gallerie a few years ago.


I like the small scale of it as it allows for extra presents as we have a very special guest coming for Christmas this year!



Our son's girlfriend, Lola, will be arriving on Christmas Eve from Buenos Aires.



She is looking forward to experiencing a Winter Christmas and we are thrilled to have her with us!


My dear Aunt Jackie, my mom's older sister who passed this year at the age 93, made this stunning gold wreath over 50 years ago!



It is every bit as beautiful as she was and
we are so blessed to have it as a reminder of her and her amazing talent.





 Last weekend my mom and I stopped at an estate sale and saw this creche for sale.



My mom who has over 40 different creches displayed throughout her home, bought this one for us after we figured out we had the perfect spot for it!



She loves seeing it in our home.



It looks so beautiful lit by candlelight in the evening.



I am planning on filming my mom giving a tour of her spectacular Christmas decor so stay tuned for a real treat!

Thank you for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

Terri, you did a great job and it all turned out so beautiful! I remember the photos that you posted of your mom's decorated home years ago, so I'm really looking forward to the video. Merry Christmas!
