Christmas Cheer

I don't put up a huge Christmas tree or completely redecorate for the holidays. I do add a few decorations to each room to make the season brighter. 

My newest addition for our bedroom is a quilted wreath wall hanging and cute pillows featuring a patchwork ornament and a Santa hat. I didn't have a pattern, so I used EQ7 to lay out the designs. I love how the fabrics add a bright modern touch to the room. The black and white swirled quilt is the back of one I already made.  

Make your space merry with a few well placed items that will make you smile. It doesn't have to be perfect, just festive.  

Twinkling lights around the back door or a special ornament hanging on a cabinet knob give just the right touch of holiday spirit. 

Tiny lightweight ornaments on my Norfolk Island pine make a perfect little Charlie Brown Christmas tree. 

A snowman plate on my kitchen counter adds a simple touch of holiday cheer, especially with those just baked chocolate chip cookies.  

Enjoy the season and have a wonderful, relaxing December.
