Karla's Party



Head over to Karla's Cottage, where she is having a "What I Love About My Holiday Home" party. She has posted lots of pictures herself, and if you keep scrolling down, she is listing links...so sit back and enjoy the gorgeous pictures & be prepared to be inspired as you take a tour of homes!!!


So...What do I love about my holiday home? Well, I love lots of candles...I love the color combination that I chose for this year - light blue, light green & cranberry!!

I love to have handmade ornaments on the tree.

My home is pretty simple and I like it that way!!The views outside are pretty this time of year...

But mostly, my home is peaceful and that is because the people that live there love one another and understand the true meaning of Christmas and are striving to live daily for the Christ of Christmas. I'm anxiously awaiting having all my family home during the holiday season!!

Your home is like a breath of fresh air compared to so many cluttered/accessorized homes online.
