The Christmas Season In My Home


I’m not a huge seasonal decorator, but I do love to add a few accents here and there for the Christmas season.  All of our decorations are concentrated in two rooms.  I’ve found over the years the less I put up the less I have to take down at the end of the season.  In short…a less stressed out Momma at the end of the season.

However, I do love the colors and cheeriness that Christmas decorations bring to my house.  So, lately my goal is to just add touches here and there to the items that I have normally sitting out.

On my Hoosier cabinet I have a wooden bowl full of glass balls and a few tin stars. A simple addition of color and shine, brightens up that area.


My tree is kid decorated with a few of my favorites thrown in for accents!  You all know I enjoy crocheting so the windows in my living room and sitting room feature snowflakes and stars, re-useable and easy to hang.

Our sitting room is the room where the tree is and also the room we use the most.  The majority of my decorating is in this room. A few ornaments to the items already in this room give it a touch of Christmas/winter cheer.


And finally, my favorite decorations of all are these four living, breathing gifts that liven each and every day with their smiles and joy.

Thankfully I get to keep these with me all year long, not just for a short season. They definitely light up my life each and every day!  So, I keep the Christmas decorations subtle and let the sweetness of these four faces bring immeasurable joy to the season.

  4. *Love* this post Jenn! Such gorgeous photos, as per usual...but the best is the living, breathing blessings that God has given you...TREASURES!!

    Merry CHRISTmas my friend!

  5. I feel the same way about decorating. It stays in the main living area. I wish I had more desire to deck out all the rooms, but it's just not in me for now.

    Hope to talk to you soon. I wasn't able to get through this weekend. Love ya!

  6. My priorities seem so inline with yours Jenn...Christmas has really become so commercialized that the meaning has been almost forgotten or even unheard of! Bless your heart girl!

  7. Absolutely beautiful Jenn!

    Blessed Christmas, my friend.
