Dreamy Christmas

I have been trying to figure out how to download this particular picture for weeks now and once I figured it out is was such a DUH! moment.....Anyway, I just love this picture. I can and will imagine myself sitting in a large over sized chair right in front of the fire with a hot cup of tea and, and, oh I just covet this!!!! Thou shalt not covet but what the heck, someones got to do it and it might as well be me. lol Christmas is a time when people really put their personalities into decorating their home and I for one love to look at all the beautiful ideas......

If I had a porch this long it WOULD be lined with all these beautifully decorated trees. Just looking at this makes me wonder what the electric bill would be, Yikes!

OK, I made a stop in the middle of my Christmas surfing when I saw THIS, can you believe it? What an absolutely F A B U L O U S idea, beautiful. Can you just picture the cake trimmed in christmasy colors too? Love it, love it, love it....

OK, back to my Christmas surfing.....I could really get used to this house in this beautiful setting. Don't the colors just capture you?
If I could be anywhere at Christmas I think I'd like to be in a log cabin in the snow. A big warm fire like the one in the first picture, snow falling outside the window......Somehow, sunny California just doesn't give that picture. hahahaha I mean just about every picture or even the little villages you can put together yourself, you know, the houses with lights etc. are all about snow. Some day I am just going to have to make it happen. Anybody out there have a log cabin for rent????? :)

Have a wonderful weekend everybody and for those on the east coast I wish you warmth and electricity! My daughter just came back from Boston just before the ice storm. I am very glad she came home safe and sound from her business trip.

Your attention please ~ Sector 4 - we have breach in security. Copy that. There appears to be a mole in the operation that has stolen all the Christmas decorations from SPARKY's location in GA. I will dispatch Agent Pierce at O-dark-thirty for a visual. CHA CHA

Oh, I love it too! I love the blue shelves and mantle! That was a whole lot of Christmas trees! After my remodel is over,I live in country in a Craftsman Bungalow, on ten acres. I hope to build a small cabin on my 8 or so acres about an hour away. Just for a get away!

I love those pictures. The house almost looks like a Thomas Kincade painting. The cake is fabulous!!!
We got snow last night and this morning the sun is shining brightly, but boy it's cold. My hubby built a fire in the fireplace but all I do is sneeze and my nose gets plugged up. I don't know if it's the wood he's burning or what.
I'll trade places with you anyday...I would love to be in sunny California, or anywhere warm right now.

Oh what beautiful, gorgeous and comforting pictures of Christmas. I love the first one, of course. :) Anything with a fireplace gives me the cozies. One day my dream will come true of having a fireplace in the master bedroom. :)

It's been a while since I have visited, but I just wanted to stop by and wish you a very Merry Christmas. I love the first photo and hope you don't mind that I saved it to my computer. It would make such a nice Christmas background for my desktop. :-)

Christmas blessings,
