Quiet Christmas

We enjoyed a quieter Christmas this year like so many families.  We enjoyed a delicious meal with our sons and I loved setting the the table with a tartan tablecloth and my favorite Christmas dishes.

 I usually place the Christmas tree in the corner of our dining room across from the front window since our dining room is in the front of our home, right off the entry hall.  Our tree is full of meaningful ornaments filled with decorations my sons made when they were little, gifts and special ornaments from places we've visited over the years.  

I use my mother-in-law's sterling silver and a few other family pieces for our table and it makes me feel they are with us.  

Things we have collected over time make a home so warm.  This year I think we all focused on our families and blessings through a difficult year.   I spent a lot of time in the garden this past summer and now this winter I'm focused on projects indoors. 

Hoping everyone has a safe and healthy holiday season!  Wishing everyone a Blessed New Year!
