I happened across this warm, cozy cottage, delightfully decorated for the holidays. This Georgia, 2,000 sq ft. home belongs to James Farmer, Editor- at- Large at Southern Living. The curb appeal is undeniable and welcoming. Let’s take a look.

Magnolias are quintessentially southern. Below are some additional examples of how they can be used in decorating for the holidays. They are large glossy green on one side and a velvety, suede like on the underside, they allow for lots of creativity, even when used just by themselves.

I am having difficulty believing that Christmas is almost here, and that 2017 is around the corner. The weather here is warmer one day and crazy cold the next. No snow however. I hope that you folks that have a lot of snow can enjoy it. I would love to have a itty bit of snow for Christmas, but alas, they are predicting rain the both Christmas eve and day. No matter, I look forward to a couple of quiet days. I find this time one of reflection for me, and I find that as I decorated, and listened to Christmas music, I was caught up in distant memories more so than usual. I smiled, I teared up, and I also laughed out loud, even though no one else was around except Whitley and Carter. Funny thing though – Whitley for the first time is not liking the decorating activity so much. She has walked around with a hang dog look, not like her at all, yet she and Carter love to curl up close to the tree every night. Go figure. I have finally completed all my decorating, and photos will be taken and posted. I am enjoying it every evening when the soft light bathes the entire house. I hope you are all enjoying the preparations as well. Thanks for stopping by. laters, charisse.
