Lori,
I love your lighter look this year! The little touches of green and natural items is wonderful. Merry Christmas to you, Peter and Hannah. Hugs, Lori

So pretty and peaceful. Thank you for sharing. Greens and berries tucked in here and there are my favorite decorations. One of my favorite things we have is a white birch log with holes drilled in it for candles. It sits on our buffet with pinecones surrounding it and a few old ornaments. The candles are lit each evening for dinner. Enjoy your holidays -- bet you and Peter can't wait for Hannah to show up!!
