No Place Like Home

But what on earth is half so dear-
So longed for- as the hearth of home? ~ Emily Bronte

Hello again, dear friends! Thank you for joining me today and thank you to everyone who participated in last week's No Place Like Home party!

On Saturday, Hubby and I drove to Summerside to one of my favourite stores where they were having their annual Christmas show. I meant to take some pictures of their trees and ornaments but the crowd was too thick and made taking photos too difficult. So I will share some of their trees from their website. It truly is a lovely place to shop.

I loved their pillows and bottle brush trees!

Hubby liked this red tree. I am more into soft and pretty although I do love the colour red.

I was hoping to do some Christmas shopping while we were there but I really didn't see anything I was looking for. Being the last day of the sale, I suppose I missed out on a few things earlier in the week. 

I did however find this pair!

For several years, I have been on the look out for a set of deer for my mantel, but I could never find what I wanted until I saw these. These two were just the right size and were pretty cute. I couldn't resist them. The only problem was they were a bit pricey. But I oohed and aahed over them and with twenty-five per cent off each piece, well, what could I do? I bought one and Hubby got the other for me for an early Christmas present. I can't wait to set them on the mantel with the evergreens and lights! I plan to decorate the mantel this week.

Has anyone else started to decorate besides my friend, Debbie at Debbie-Dabble? 

Statistics show, the earlier you decorate, the happier you are. I believe that is true. When my children were growing up, I started in early November and I always had the Christmas music playing too. My friends used to tease about it but Christmas just made me happy! How about you? Does the "most wonderful time of the year" make you happy?

I wish we could put up some Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. ~ Harlan Miller

If you have a post you would like to add to my party this week, just let me know in a comment and I will add your website/post to my party. I will not have the thumbnail linky set up as it's only until the week of December 16th that I am hosting. We will see what happens in the New Year. 

Please share anything that is home related but no advertisements or Esty items. Everything that makes your home cozy and more enjoyable to come home to, for your family, your friends, and yourself is welcome. 

Posts including artwork, antiques, baking and cooking, collections, china, crafting, decorating, knitting, quilting, tea time, etc...all are welcome.
Thank you so much for coming and God bless you!

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 love and let Thy grace 
Shine upon our dwelling place. - Edgar A. Guest
