It's Christmas Eve, and there's a beautiful White blanket of snow in Boston!!! I'm up to my "Mrs. Clause hat" in ribbons, glitter and bows but wanted to wish All my sweet blog friends a Warm and Cozy Christmas Holiday! I will be leaving for Canada the 26th to visit with my Dad for a couple of weeks. I am so excited to be able to spend some quality time with him. 

 Christmas at my house-This year I went for an all white and silver decor for my tree. My angel topper had seen better Christmases, so, I place an iron Candelabra for my tree topper and added christmas bulbs in the candle holders. My intention was to actually use candles and light them, just for the shot of course.. I will do anything for a great picture..But, my tree dried out pretty quick this year so , even if it was for the shot, and fire extinguisher in hand, I thought, maybe not....Next year..smiles


Wishing you a Very Blessed and Healthy New Year!
Jo

What a beautiful tree, Jo-Anne - just like you! Oooh, the lace along the bottom, so pretty. I love the Back Porch Friends too. I have one of those and she's one of my very favorite Christmas ornaments.

Have a nice time spending time with your Dad in Canada.

Merry Christmas!
Lots of Love ;)
