Christmas On The Coast

I find myself decorating in lighter colors and doing less since we have moved from the mountains to the coast.  I love decorating with shells and as you can see by my blog header, I love to decorate with whites and creams.

I just add some Christmas balls and garland to the shell dishes that I already had sitting on the coffee table.

More baubles and bling.....

In my entryway I added my wonderful deer and some more balls and garland

In the diningroom I added more whites and silvers

And, this little feather tree with treasured ornaments
I have placed in the family room

I am going to take some more pictures just as soon as the sun starts shining and there is more natural light inside the house.  I hope that's soon.
In the meantime, I'm going to start my evening wind-down by looking
at all of your posts and lovely Christmas decor.

I just love coming over here to drool, er, linger over your beautiful home. If I had my way, my entire house would be creams and whites with touches of taupe and sea blue/green. Thanks for giving me my 'fix'. :)

You have a lovely home and with all these neat decorations, it will be even more beautiful. I started to wear the sweater for my blog, but chickened out. Maybe another time.
