Happy December, Friends!

I just knew November was gonna get away from me…and I was right!

Man did that month blow by fast!

Here it is December already, mom and dad are back up here for the holidays, they got in yesterday.

Seems so good to have them here, especially for the holidays.

Speaking of the holidays I have started my decorating!!

I still have a little more to do,  just little touches here and there, a couple of shelves to decorate and the mudroom…I’ll share what I do have done so far tho :)

The title of my blog entry…

“Simply having a Wonderful Christmastime”….represents how I feel!  “SIMPLY” being the KEY WORD!

Christmastime in our home will be Simple yet WONDERFUL…

The more simple, the more wonderful it is!

 

Here’s a glimpse,

Welcome to

Christmastime at the Bosko’s

001

Gee, it’s been so long since I’ve posted, I forget to tell ya….I moved the drysink into the kitchen!  I decided, [for now anyway], that I want it in the kitchen, so I put it where we were goin to have the second pantry cupboard…. oh

and we made this shelf to hang above it!

006

 I have my Jim Shore angels gathered here, I collect all kinds of angels…I have them everywhere, inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs….

004

I think these are some of my favorites tho, I like the colors and the folk art look of them.

We put a tree up in our kitchen this year too, very enjoyable, sitting in here with the it all aglow!  Even makes cooking more enjoyable! ;)

  002

 I don’t care for the colored lights…this is Steve’s tree :)  He love’s the colored lights!

I have to admit, it’s growing on me ;)

Again, SIMPLE is the key…we used colored lights, grapevine garland that we cut and made, dried oranges, real candy canes, that’s it!  Oh and of course, the tin angel atop…

 001

 It’s so nice having a tree to enjoy in our kitchen…very cozy, and festive…

 043

 

 

Next, the dining room…again…SIMPLE is the ‘theme’ this year ;)

Table top

002

The holiday decor for my dining room  consists of pine cones and cedar.  Fresh bows off the OLDE WEEPING CEDAR to be exact.  It’s so pretty in my large dough bowl….

Cedar is my favorite of all the greens.

 

Ok-I need to share something….I know you’re prolly gonna think I’ve lost it here, but I just have to point something out…[in the picture below]…and since I’m amongst friends…if ya think I’m crazy, I know you’ll keep that to yourselves…right?

042

I went out and cut some bows off my Weeping Cedar…the Weeping Cedar planted in memory of our nieces, Hannah (our God Daughter) and Emma…who are now beautiful little angels in heaven……anyway, I brought the bows in and placed them in my dough bowl and took a few pictures…the first picture I took had a little glow on the tip of one of the bows…do  ya see it in the photo above?

When the photo is enlarged, or the actual size I viewed it in…the glow looks like an ANGEL, at least to me it does…her head and wings are glowing…it isn’t in any of the other photos either…only the first one I took!    

042Here’s the glow 

 

042

…and here, I outlined her…do  you think it looks like an angel? her body, head and wings, and even a brighter halo…

You all see her don’tcha? Please tell me ya do!!  ;)

 

 

My Simple Table Gathering

021

A bowl of pinecones & Weeping Cedar bows,  the Bible, and a sweet little Angel named Hannah ;)

 

 

038

Cedar garland around the light fixture

  035

A simple cedar bow draped over the pegs on my shelf and a few pinecones …see the tree on the shelf?  That’s a Sweet Annie tree I made!  Smells wonderful!

  023

  In the hutch…again, one bow from the olde weeping cedar drapes down over the shelf…

“Simply havin’ a wonderful Christmastime”

Here we are in the family room…

  026

In keeping with my theme :)

nothing elaborate…a simple prim tree, donned in handmade ornies, and some that I purchased, I have real candles clipped on the branches and a homespun garland.  I used a quilt for the tree skirt.  My Snow angel sits atop this tree.

021

I have a winterberry wreath hanging on the door, with a few hydrangea heads tucked into it.

032

 

The bathroom has a tree too!

SIMPLE, no decorations! Can’t get any more simple than that, can ya?

  003

That’s all I have done so far…I still have a bit more to do, I will post pictures again when I get the rest finished.  I still want to decorate the mud room and add a few greens here and there.  For the most part, I’m done tho.

Hope ya enjoyed seeing this glimpse of our Christmastime…Simple as it is!

I am (very much) enjoying visiting your blogs,  all your homes are so beautifully decorated!!  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, or…. maybe that’s the Bailey’s Irish Cream I put in my coffee??  :) Either way, I am enjoying my coffee and my visits!

Keep those Christmas posts coming!!

 

I can’t close without sharing the prettiest picture of all!

♥♥♥♥♥

Here’s Little Miss Ava Kathryn, isn’t she getting big?  I can’t believe it!  Each time I get pictures she’s changed so much…she is sitting up now, straight and steady….and she looks just as proud as a lil peacock about that, doesn’t she? :)

She is so pretty, I think she gets prettier every time I see her!

♥♥♥♥♥

So friends, that’s it from here…I wish you all a happy rest of the week…I have a few more orders to do and some more decorating, shopping and a party to plan…then I will be back!!

Until then….TGC & Enjoy the Season!

 

Oh, how rude of me…..hehe…just in case ya have this song stuck in your head now…

here’s the words-I was humming it while I was typing this entry--

Were YOU??
