Christmas Countdown....5 Day's

Touches of Christmas on the upstairs landing....

The group picture of my brothers, sister, and myself with Santa on the shelf was taken around 1958.

Our mantel decorations in the family room.....

Which do you prefer, white lights or colored lights?


  1. Hi Catherine,
    I love your wooden floor, it looks marvellous.
    Have a wonderfull christmas and a happy, healthy and creative new year

  2. It looks warm and cozy Cathie! Did you paint the floor? Love it!

    We do white lights here.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. I prefer white; John prefers colored. Some year we'll have both. What a sweet photo to display at this time of year. You've created a warm and welcoming Christmas home, Cathy. I can see it in your paintings.

  4. I like both colored and white lights, depending on where it's at.
    I love the old truck and wooden duck on your mantle! My parents had a wooden duck just like that when I was growing up!
    Everything looks so great! You have such a pretty home!
    Merry Christmas!

  5. I love that board and batten going up your staircase....and that floor!!!!
    Merry Christmas!

  6. I usually prefer white lights. Your home is so lovely, Cathie, and I love your decorations, especially your mantle!

    Have a wonderful holiday, Merry Christmas!


  7. LOVE your Mantel! Colored lights there, although I use alot of white lights too!


Thanks for taking the time to share your sweet comments!
