Holiday Dreams and Holiday Decor



Growing up, my mother used to decorate our home for Christmas.

Our every day home took on a magical feel that only happened

at Christmas time.

 Each bedroom all of the sudden was dressed with new bedding that reflected Christmas and the approaching day...
There were sparkly pillows, comfy throws for cuddling...
sheet sets with snowflakes on them...
Some of the rooms just received a new white sheet set to go with a quilt that was pulled out at Christmas....because the blocks were made with red and white fabrics....


I remember being very excited when my room got its own Christmas tree, decorations and little twinkle lights...


My mother is gone...but those memories remain vivid in my  mind.
They bring great happiness to me...
 It seems only natural that now I am the grandmother I should make our home a welcoming place, with sparkly pillows, comfy throws for snuggling...
 Plates of cookies with hot cocoa and marshmallows in abundance...

and now that I have my first grandchild...a little girl named Emma...she of course should have a lovely place to sleep, dream of sugar plums, and wait for little presents under the tree for her.

Grandma's rocking chair equally has a new cushion and little lap quilt in case there is a chill while rocking her little grand babies to sleep.
 The front porch or the back porch also needs a bench, a pillow and a throw...for those who want to linger as the sun sets....chilly weather...but lovely nonetheless as the sun starts to go down behind the mountain...bidding everyone inside by the fire.  My lasting memories have made an impression on my little miniatures in a home that I live in, in my dreams. But my real home is where I want to be with those I love the most. 
Life is for living....dreams for dreaming...little ones for hugging and kissing....
Family is forever...
Blessings,
Debbie
All miniature rooms are from my Christmas collection in my Easy shop.
