No Place Like Home # 8

Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever. ~ Bess Streeter Aldrich

Hello dear friends and welcome to my last No Place Like Home before Christmas!

The minutes are ticking down and the day we've all been busy as bees getting ready for is just about here. I have some last minute baking to do like my donuts and pies. We will have lots of family around this year. How about you? Are you just about ready?

There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. ~ Edith Wharton

This is my centrepiece on the coffee table this year. A mercury glass lamp is surrounded by greenery, winter berries, pinecones, magnolias and hydrangea petals.

Over the weekend I shared my main Christmas tree and a Christmas Roses Tea. I also shared another little Christmas tree that I decorated.

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. ~ Roy L. Smith

As much as I don't like to cancel parties, No Place Like Home will be cancelled next week due to the Holidays. I will return in the New Year on January 4, 2016. Have a Beautiful and Blessed Christmas dear friends and Happy New Year to you all!

"Lord, this humble house we'd keep
Sweet with play and calm with sleep.
Help us so that we may give
Beauty to the lives we live.
Let thy beauty and Thy grace
Shine upon our dwelling place." ~ Edgar A. Guest
