I tend to go crazy during the holidays so the less is more decor is a welcomed change.

I ordered these fabulous chippy lanterns back at Christmas. They are by Ragon House I believe it is. I couldn't resist since they had the blue gray color peeking thru.

I purchased these old books a few years back when out antiquing with mama.

I never bothered to really look at them till now and fell in love with the fact that they are written on. I researched Ms. Sweetie Burgess and she is from Oglethorpe, Ga and was around 16 years old when she wrote on this book. I always love to learn as much as I can about the treasures I find.

Love that it has actually been cold enough this winter to use the fireplace and not just for pictures. LOL.

This is a picture from late afternoon/early evening at our house. The sunsetting and shining off of the house next-door leaves a pink glow on our walls so I always have to be sure to pictures before the sun starts setting.
