Let The Merriment Begin

The decorating is complete.
I took advantage of all the natural greenery adding berries, fruits, and cinnamon sticks.
The house smells like Christmas.
 





The silver is polished

 
The tree is overflowing
 
 
The Christmas crackers await eager hands
 




On the porch, the old wooden sleds have been decorated with boughs of fresh Cedar.
The little Wrens have decided to make it their nightly roost.
'Tis the season for sharing...

Just lovely. Puts me into the spirit more. Seems to be lacking for me this year. I can almost smell the cinnamon. Carla
