Christmas has filled the house and this may be my favorite year yet.  I am going a bit lighter.  

This is the tree at dusk, notice the lighter ornaments.

This year I decided to use a crown as our tree topper.  I’m enjoying my choice.  It looks as though it isn’t straight in this photo but is straight.

Love the lighter French Country ornaments from Balsam Hill.  Bought them in July for a great price.  They allow my Christopher Radko ornaments to show up better.  These are more my style now.

The galvanized bucket I aged a few years back added with a wrap I made using French script ribbon I had on hand from Ballard gives it some character.  Packages wrapped in toile were added for more of a French flair.

Today I will take pictures of this tree during the day and will be sharing that and more picture of our great room.
