I've blogged about my dear friend, Colette, before.
Sometimes people come up to me & say,
"I wish I could meet your friend Colette -
she seems so great!"
A few years ago
I helped her decorate her home.
When Christmas rolled around,
we had a ball shopping for decorations
which were hand picked with her
beautiful furnishings & accessories
Each year I get to help Colette
put up her Christmas decorations,
so I thought you may like to come along
Come on in & I'll show you around . . .
Colette's entry has this large railing -
perfect to decorate with garlands!
When decorating the tree,
we start with the big stuff - like
the ribbons & large copper colored balls.
Then we fill in with all the smaller ornaments . . .
Colette uses on it for Christmastime.
. . . The living room mantle.
The one thing that I can't convey in a blog post is the
wonderful feeling of warmth & love present
in the home of my friend
who keeps the
true spirit of Christmas
in her heart all year through!
