“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”

Christmas is the one season that takes me to a place of nostalgia. The smells, the sights, and even the sounds of the season take me to a place of joy and happiness! As I unpack our decorations each year, my mind is flooded with memories that are attached to each one. I love things that tell a story and evoke a memory…which is why my Christmas style is one of collections and sentiment! As I unwrap my collection of colorful Radko ornaments, I remember the first two that my Mother gave to me that began my beloved collection many years ago. And above all, the true meaning for our Christmas season is awakened in me as I carefully place my nativities throughout our home….
In addition to my many collections that fill our home during this time of year, you will notice one more thing…I love color! In a sea of white (which I love!) I am still a girl who loves living in color! Years of collections bring years of color…color that reminds me that Christmas is here, and in our home, All Is Bright!
My Mother started the collection for me and friends kept adding new ones for many years.
For years I put up three trees, then reduced it to two…this year we only put up one in our family room! Each year we say we are going to make it more simple, but we love all of our collections and the memories that are attached!
You often see our dining room set for Tablescape Tuesday, but for everyday use I keep it simple.
You can see last week’s tablesetting “Plaid Tidings” from the the Holiday Tablescape Blog Hop.
