Sunday Serenity ...

~2nd Advent~
My rosette "kissing ball" is hung from the chandelier just outside my studio ♥
bannisters are wrapped with cedar and strung with mini white twinkle lights
hubby's Nutcracker collection is standing guard :-)
Archer is supervising it all
the kitchen smells amazing...
peppermint bark popcorn
and cookie mix jars have been filled
we made cookies
and a ginger bread house
the tree is up
and branches that needed to be removed now decorate
the "birds" tree outside
treats have been put out for them too.
*I found this old mechanics light holder years ago & it's so handy holding apples for the birds*
did I say birds?
they are waiting patiently in the tree for someone to finish his lunch :-)
meanwhile ... I am enjoying a mug of tea writing out Christmas cards.
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday also ♥
** I will be hosting a Giveaway on my Blog next week ... Stampington has generously offered an issue of The Coloring Studio to one lucky viewer**
