I'm not late.....I'm just really, really early

I didn't get my act together enough before Christmas to share how I decorated for the Season
this year and wanted to post it before 2018~
so here goes...
Just to warn you though, this post has waaay too many photos!!!

I did the woodsy thing again since it's what I love and my trees are prevalent on
our mountain property.
The aspens sometimes sucker up in fencelines and other
 places we can't have them grow, so I usually have lots to choose from.
This year I did hydrangeas in the branches and the photo above is before I had them all
hung up. I loved the look in this photo and not so much in the light of day, because truthfully,
it looked like one big mess, but I'm glad I got this shot before I had hung them all up.

I did more trees than I usually do and loved the look of an enchanted grove that it gave
 the living room in the evening with all the lights lit.

I decorated the trees with a myriad of things. 
Some of the items have special meaning for me, and others I just think are pretty.

I had ten trees in the grouping and as you can see, they aren't that impressive without the lights
lit, but to get a decent photo straight on, I had to take it with the lights out.
Even then, they look much prettier in person.

I do love how they look through the reflection of the mirror though!

I did the mantle in silver and gold with sprinklings of hydrangea petals

 a few vignettes around the house in the next pics


I'm crazy about this old photo of sleigh riders in years gone by

a little fun with my Maileg pixie and his little pixie friend

Here he's showing me one of his brothers in Belle Blanc's Merry Christmas book

The garden gates each got a matching wreath this year, and as you can 
see, we haven't gotten snow different from this time last year!

I hope each of you had a beautiful Christmas season this year and that you all have
a wonderful New Year!

sending hugs.....
