You must be so relieved that your son is all right. How frightening!
Your decor is so lovely! I can't wait to see all of your Christmas decor! Those Waterford trees are wonderful!
My husband (aka Clark Griswold) is so excited about getting the attic full of Christmas decorations down and strewn through the house. I'm more reserved, since I know how much work it is to put it all away!
Enjoy the season!


I'm glad Ahren was fine, but how upsetting it must have been to be in that situation. As a mom, I'm sure it was nerve wracking for you as well.

Your decorating is so beautiful. And the Waterford trees! How exceptionally beautiful. I'd be scared to death to use them; I'm glad, though, that you do. Pretty things are meant to be enjoyed.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Oh, what beautiful decorations! Autumn 🍂 is my favorite season too, we have survived the awful heat of a Texas summer and Halloween 🎃 kicks off all the holidays 🥰. Love your crystal trees! I was so hot and tired once thanksgiving dinner was ready that I really didn’t have an appetite 🤣, don’t want to do that again….

Your small tree by your reading chair is one of the most elegant I've ever seen. When the picture is enlarged, the lights make the glass shine beautifully. So very lovely. Enjoy the Christmas season!


Nicole. Your decorating is always exquisite. The Waterford trees are very lovely. Your husband did good on those two new ones. Looking forward to seeing the other decorations.


Have you tried looking for a YouTube video to fix your tree? My husband seems to find all kinds of solutions there.
I, too, love the autumn decorations, and leave them up as long as I can.


That's scary news from Ahren. So happy he's safe after his harrowing experience! Decorating with a puppy in the house is a challenge. We put the tree on a table for at least the first year & with the two younger pups, it was a second year just to be on the safe side. After that they considered the tree skirt a nice spot for a nap, but left everything on the tree alone. Could you add a string of lights to it rather than the expense of a new tree? I think those Waterford trees are gorgeous & so unusual! Extra husband points for finding the last two!

I love the small Waterford tree…inspires me to do a few trees! I have a tiny sewing room tree and a sweet kitchen tree with miniature cooking themed item…tiny copper pans …mini Starbucks mugs..tiny rolling pins and cookie cutters. Our regular tree wil be a table top size set away from Mr. Right’s corner of the couch…his “office”!…keeping his allergies at bay perhaps. In a few days!! I have an “early Christmas “ box that starts me off slowly…advent calendars and stockings first. I try to spread out the decorating and enjoy the bits and pieces. Glad your son is OK…frightening, I’m sure.

I am also hunting all over for a comfortable reading/napping chair for our bedroom…where I can escape from the
Korean soap operas to which Mr. Right is currently addicted!! Any suggestions?


I read about this in the newspaper. it's the same hatefulness going on everywhere. any excuse to be destructive and scare people. we are living in scary times.

I don't recognize your Waterford tree...I've been reading your blog a long time and that one looked unfamiliar. the addition of the red and green one are just beautiful.

Your decorations are very pretty. The Archie-discoveries will go on for awhile! We always put non-glass ornaments on the bottom of our tree when we had dogs; those tails were a problem even as they got older! I am glad your son was okay. Scary.


How scary for Ahren and you worrying about him! Luckily he got home okay. Love the decorations, you’re lucky you have a husband who likes decorating- mine wants to toss or sell all my stuff 😳
