Sorry I have been a bit absent from blogging lately
There is so much going on this time of year and my lack of blogging reflects it.
I've slowly but surely been adding some touches of Christmas around our home
I love decorating with fresh greenery and like to keep things simple
I purchased this sacred heart from my favourite shop
It goes perfect with our Christmas decor
Little touches of greenery here and there
I love mixing rustic with pretty
I purchased these pretty little books when I attended the 2nd Saturdayz fleamarket this past weekend with my friend Tracie
My favourite part of our Christmas decor is the handmade school ornaments our sons have made
Our Christmas tree is full of a variety of handmade and sentimental ornaments that all have special memories
Our tree isn't vintage or shabby chic style but it is perfect for us.
~ Have a Very Merry Christmas ~
Remember the true reason for the season
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
It is a busy time for all of us! Your greenery looks nice, Enjoy the season, Laura
So charming Rachel- I love your Christmas decor!! It's just beautiful!!! Happy Holidays!!! :)
Beautiful Rachel! I have the same cute sled ornament from my daughter!! From a few years ago! Funny!
Christmas is so personal, and I love to hear about you with your family! We will be in Beaune for New Year and hope you can join us there some time!
Also love this combination! Just beautiful as allways.
Your tree is beautiful and perfect! I do have to say this is the first year I didn't put the kids homemade ornaments on the tree and believe me I have heard about it(they are all grown). Merry Christmas to you!xoxo~SueBee
so pretty Rachel!
Catching up on a few blogs myself as I too, have been blogging a bit less. Your holiday decor is beautiful. I just love your home. Love the white stockings hanging from the manatel I hope to make some ruffled white and gray stockings this week. It's all very charming and I agree, the best ornaments were made by tiny hands.
Merry Christmas to you and your family,
Everything looks so pretty, Rachel. I love the hutch with all the greenry on top. I haven't felt much like blogging either, there's just too much going on this time of year :)
I've missed your lovely posts but I'm happy that you're spending your time doing more important things this season. Your Christmas home is so beautiful ... I love the mix of simple and natural with elegance. I especially love your mantle. By mistake, I gave all my mercury glass candleholders away. Big Mistake! Hope your holiday season is a beautiful one ~

Hi Rachel! Your tree is even more beautiful knowing that it's full of meaningful ornaments! I just received two of my first ornaments made by the girls.... priceless!
Your house looks so beautiful decorated for the holiday season!
