Just a Few Decorations

I started to go crazy with this post but then I realised that we all have a life and probably very limited time for blog hopping this time of year so my decorations will be brief....just kidding! But it will take more than one post to cover.

This is my favorite tree in the house because red & white looks so clean and fresh. It sits in the dining room next to the fireplace....

An ornament in honor of all the friends that stop by....

One of the pitchers from my collection. I change the floral with the season, if I can remember!....

Good 'Ol St. Nick with his coffee mug and pajamas. That's how I like to work....

Oh there's my favorite word again, "Believe"....

And again! Are you sensing a theme?

This is the mantle above the fireplace in the diningroom. So what do you think about "Imagine"? Since it will be up through the new year I figured it could be a conversation starter and would conjour up "make believe" topics and perhaps a few resolutions too. Let's play a game. Finish this sentence in the comments you leave.  "Imagine IF in the new year I......."
Here's mine: "Imagine IF in the new year I traveled to Paris.....Bonjour! And sipped espresso at a lovely sidewalk cafe. And then strolled through the quaint shops. OOH LA LA. I need a passort ;-)
 I look forward to reading your "Imagine IF".
