It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We had a lovely snowfall yesterday , soft gentle flakes that looked like a snowglobe , it was beautiful .
We received at least 10 cm. of the white stuff and I am thrilled as I love a white Christmas , sure hope it stays around , we are suppose to have rain tomorrow so fingers crossed it doesn't happen. It is suppose to get colder in the afternoon tomorrow , dropping to -8 C. so nothing will melt with those temps. 
I finally have the house decorated , took me several days to finish up , just one of those years. Here is what it looks like in the evening when the lights are on , it isn't easy to take a picture of  the room with the lights on ,I am sure it is camera operator ,not the camera ;-0
I have some special ornaments I'd like to share , first off is this angel that our son Chad brought back from Switzerland for me , he knows I love angels .
And a clown for his Dad as he was a Shriner clown for years .
This photo is a little fuzzy , camera operator again :-) , notice the really sweet paper ornament next to the clown ,my friend Susanne from Denmark sent that last year along with a couple of others , just love those ornaments.
Here is the other side of the room with the nativity set , I have to say I love the house at Christmas , it is very warm and cozy and makes me feel good.
 I recently received these sweet little angels from my friend Susanne and thought they would look special beside this vintage Swedish ornament with candles and angels .Thank you Susanne. She also sent me a really cool new notion which I will share later on . The mail lady just arrived and I have three packages to open so will share that later as well. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and hope your Christmas preparations are coming along well , enjoy your day. 
Hugs Sheila


  1. Very pretty tree |Sheila...the snow looks so pretty. We have absolutely none!!!! I want the roads to stay bare...but a little snow would be so much more like Christmas...fingers are crossed, but it's not in the forecast. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  2. Oh how I wish you could send some of that snow our way. I love a white Christmas too and we just aren't getting any snow! It's 46 degrees here today.

    I love your Christmas decorations! Very nice!

    Merry Christmas, Sheila!


  3. I love your tree, the ornaments, angels and the SNOW... I'd love to have a white Christmas here, but that's not sure yet.
    And I've found and bought the Jim Shore nativity star!
    You can see the nativity set and star on my blog.
    Merry Christmas.


  4. your christmas decorating looks beautiful.
    Belated birthday wishes!!
    Hope you had a lovely day.
    Enjoy that snow....we are expecting a temp of 30 degrees for Christmas day-looks like we will be cooking as well as the turkey!

  5. It all looks so beautiful.... inside and out!! Have a wonderful Christmas....

  6. it all looks absolutely wonderful - I am a bit jealous of the snow- it should be warm over here but it is grey and overcast and rainy instead. if you can't have a snowy Christmas you should at least get pool weather!!! Your ornaments are goegeous - so much more special when they came from family and friends I think!

  7. Sheila your house looks so pretty and cosy,merry xmas.xx

  8. I absolutely love fresh untouched snow - it is so pretty. We are just having rain and wind here.
    Your tree and house look wonderful and cosy.

  9. Such a pretty tree! Merry Christmas!

  10. The hosue looks beautiful Sheila and as you said so warm and cosy. Loved seeing the snow as well. Still find it amazing that I am sitting here in shorts and t shirt and you have to waer your winter woolies. Beautiful Angel.

  11. Your house looks lovely. Send some snow (or cold air) down here. It's entirely too warm to be almost Christmas.

  12. The snow looks very Christmassy and you house looks lovely.

  13. Your home looks beautiful and the ornaments are gorgeous. The snow looks beautiful too, but I'm not too sure about the cold temperatures!

  14. What a beautiful tree, Sheila. Your house looks so warm and cozy and inviting! My favorite of the ornaments you showed is the paper ornament...amazing! Anyway, hope you have a very blessed Christmas!

  15. Hi Sheila,
