Starting off todays party with a touch of Christmas in the kitchen.


I take a minimalist approach to decking the halls - how about you?

And now, something totally unrelated:  Are you are a 'No-reply Blogger'?

I have noticed that many of you are in this category and perhaps you don't know.

Luckily, it's an easy fix and there are tutorials galore in blog land. I have linked one below:

Simple Minimalist Christmas Decor

I chose to use a light hand for our Christmas decor this year.


My goal was to emanate the joy of the season, but in a simple, minimalist style.


I gathered a few simple objects that spoke to me and arranged them into modest vignettes.


In my mind, less truly is more.


There was a time when I felt overwhelmed during the holidays.


Over the years,  I learned how to calm my inner self. 


I discovered that keeping things simple was the key.


Now, I am able to focus on the things that really matter....


....and that has made all the difference in the world.

May the spirit of Christmas surround you now and all through the year.
