Christmas Touches

Sprinkled thru the house are  Christmas touches.
 In the kitchen  a lovely  pink and cream splashed poinsettia from my Mom.

 Bright red tea towels.

This lit snowman is from Lenox and has glitter that fills the globe when plugged in, so cheery . He overlooks my baking area in the kitchen.

 Bright box for cookies yet to be baked.

 Mugs waiting for hot chocolate and marshmallows.

 Snowmen I love , this tea light greets visitors in the foyer,

Simple touches in the bathrooms ;
Star container from Rosanne filled with flouresent green glittered apples .
3 crystal candle holders with dark balsam scented votives accented with holiday finger towels.

I so look forward every Christmas to bring out this   favoured Christmas decoration I recieved many years ago from my Granddaughters. It is a  quart sealer jar  filled with potpourri and a string of  Xmas lights , topped with a lace  doily and tied with a bright red and gold ribbon. Each year I refresh the   potpourri  with  oil  scent , this year is cranberry. When the lights are on the  soft scent fills the air . Brings a smile everytime  I look at it.
In the living room ; out come the Xmas  pillows  and the  white   bear for lounging on the sofa.
My little tree is up decorated with apple green, bronze and peacock blue colours..

Mercury glass votive holders  accented with  green and bronze on the mantel.

On the  coffee table more glittered bright green and a  Fitz and Floyd Santa tidbit plate , candy dish and  acorn candle.
An electic  mix  but many loved special to me pieces...

It looks wonderfully festive at your house, Rosemary! :-) I should run 'round the house with my camera... Happy Looking-Forward-to-Christmas time!

Nice and festive. Think my favorite is the night light.
No, maybe the accented glass votive holders which looks like it's on a window sill.
Glad to see you're having fun.
