Keeping Things Simple...

Things are so hectic during the holidays.  All the hustle and bustle can get in the way of what Christmas means to me.  This year I kept my Christmas decorations simple.  Small table top tree, pretty white lights on the lanai and scattered on a few bushes outdoors...my Christmas cactus is ready to bloom (how does it know?!)

A lovely wire dish filled with shells I have found over the years on my beach walks.  The addition of a few colorful Christmas tree decorations adds a burst color and sparkle.
