Favourite things for Christmas

Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage is hosting a Favourite Things for Christmas link party today.

I guess one of my favourite things for Christmas is just being able to be at home in familiar surroundings with my family.

I know that is not possible for everyone but it is like comfort food for me.

This week we held our last sewing group with the Sweet Pea ladies before the Christmas break and Linda and I took time out to put some Christmas decorations around the place.

Andreena, from the Sweet Pea group, had given us a tree skirt and as we don't have a Christmas tree Linda used it as a centrepiece for the dining table.  Some lovely dark red roses from the garden in the centre bowl just set things off nicely.

Linda has shared some more images from our day together on her blog.

Nice to be home for Christmas.  Ours will be quiet and peaceable, I hope yours will be too.

My Christmas will be quiet and peaceful, too: attend candlelight service on Christmas eve and relax on Christmas day.

A blessed Christmas to all gathered in your home.

That tree skirt is lovely and what a great idea to use it on the table ! :)

Thanks, Debra, I think it is a great alternative way to use a tree skirt and fitted the purpose really well on the day.

The tree skirt looks lovely on the table, great idea.

Merry Christmas!

So glad you are home for Christmas, my friend. The tree skirt looks as if it was made for the table!

Thanks so much for joining in this week and Merry Christmas to you and yours.
