My Christmas decorating will be kept at a minimum this Christmas season, due to the many young children that often visit me. I do some and enjoy doing it. I know I may be rushing the season, but my next few weeks are busy so I decided to start early and do some each day.
Two months ago I bought these beautifully created heart ornaments.

I am not sure why these little hearts got my attention at the Marshall's Homegoods Store, but they did.


When I bought them, I wasn't sure whether I would put them on my little tree, or tie them on the bows of my gifts. The tree won out.


I added a strand of clear lights and used fine gold ribbon to tie on each heart.


A simple festive touch to the photo corner of my room.
Next I hope to add some decorative touches to my fireplace mantel.

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. I love mantel decorations over the fireplace! I can't wait to see what you do so that I can live vicariously through you since I do not have one! :)

Doing some each day is a perfect plan. Even though we have boxes (!) of Christmas decorations new ones are always such a joy. Your ornaments are beautiful

Beautiful! We have little ones too and keep things to a minimum... only the most precious (or most durable!) are displayed this year :)


Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
