Tarnished and Imperfect

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Andrews house...Hallelujah! There is nothing that gets me in the decorating mood like a good ol' snow storm!
View from my front window. would be lovely to sit right here and enjoy a visit over coffee. Don't worry I have tea, both herbal and green varitities for all of my friends, who enjoy a nice cuppa.

This is the view into our kitchen from the living room...more of the kitchen later.

The fireplace mantle...I think with the new tile and Chandelier that Tomer just added makes this my favorite thing to gaze upon this year. you notice anything familiar? Yes, I hung your Mom's Chandelier near the fireplace!

The tree wasn't completed yet...more photo's later.
Last, but not least...the tree! My absolute favorite thing. I have ornaments that hung on both of our trees as children. They may be a little tarnished from age but that makes them even more special. Why? Because as I grow older their imperfections remind me of my life...though imperfect, my Saviour loves me...I may be a bit tarnished but He makes me shiney and new.

It all looks perfect. I love seeing everyones decorations. I was so motivated to blog about it last year, this year not so much!
I am moving so slow..........

Trish, thanks for the visit
inside your home. It's just
like I imagined it would be-
all warm and cozy, friendly
and welcoming. All of your
decorations for the celebration
of our Savior's birth are so
pretty. I love to decorate

Oh Miss Trish!

I love, love, LOVE your house. I especially want to come and sit on your love seat in front of that window and beside the darling little bowl and pitcher.

I don't even need the coffee, or tea - - - just a chat would be so nice!

Merry Christmas!

Then we are "two wild and crazy gals" together for as you can see over at my blog, I too love, love, LOVE the snow!

Dear Trish,
Thanks for letting me in your genuine Christmas home.
I'd love to sit down for a cuppa hot coffee.
I'd love to sit down in front of your wonderful new tiled, but still rustic and inviting fireplace.

I also love me being a bit worn and with a history of lived life both in my home and in my face.
That's the way God made me and Jesus loves me.
You are right; Jesus is the reason for the season.
From Felisol

Pat said... I would expect!
I'm going to come by for that cuppa coffee, I'll give you a call before I come. Got kifliks?
I LOVE the fireplace! I don't like mine...I need to hire Tom!!
I also like the new placement of the couch in front of the window, but I'm sitting on the one on the other wall..LOL!
Love you sissy!!!

Pat said...

Oh, I forgot to add..
Seeing my Mom's chandelier made me catch my breath, and wipe a tear or two from my eyes. It looks perfect there. She would be thrilled, as am I.

I'll take some herbal tea please :) Look how nicely the tree lights reflect off your beautiful wood floor ! Enjoy the celebrations reminding us of our Savior's birth.

I am making the attempt to rejoin the land of the blogging! Let's see how consistent I can be!

Thanks for the Christmas tour! I remember when you were working on the kitchen a couple of years ago and I loved the snowflakes in there!

Have a wonderful Christmas and if you like, you can send that snow down my way, I certainly wouldn't mind!!
