The New Dawn – 2017

2017It is unimaginable how fast 2016 has gone by.  It seems like it was only yesterday when we started preparing for this year, getting ready to make our list of goals, evaluating the things we have done in 2015 and now, pretty much with the twink of a second we are doing the same thing once again, but heading into 2017.  What have we done and where has time gone?

We are almost end of the year and I am sure we are all thinking of the Season that we are about to embrace.  Christmas is a time of year that each and every family thinks of what they wish to do and how they wish to spend this special time of year.

The Season for Special Family Tradition Is One More Time Upon Us!

Christmas 2015 at Home
Can you believe it is already the end of the year?  It seems as though the Christmas season approaches faster every year.  November sneaked up way too fast on me this year.  The run up to Christmas is usually a busy time of year, and at this time of year I tend to find myself under a fair bit of stress.
This is a time of year that people are doing lots of searching everywhere.  They are looking for the perfect gift, fun activities and traditions for their families, special dinner, recipes, and fun party ideas.
Deck the halls and get in the Christmas spirit!
I am so late with all my Christmas arrangements this year, and now two days before Christmas, all that is left to do is (well not quite as I still have some last minute shopping to do and is to enjoy it all.  Truth is I am totally loving it)!
The Christmas Flower arrangements have been done with our favourite White and Red, thought I love a bit of vintage, but this year I have been a bit more simple than previous years.
Christmas Tradition brings the whole family together!  If ever there is a time to embrace some good old family tradition, it is definitely during the Christmas season.  There are many Christmas traditions embraced by family that bring a sense of comfort as we celebrate together with families and friends!
One of my favourite Christmas tradition is the decorating moments at home.  It’s fantastic, magical time where I set the mood with lively Christmas music, mull wine on the side, and bring all the beautiful seasonal decoration out of the trunk.  I really enjoy blending in all the traditional Christmas decoration, and family themes throughout the rooms at home.
Sometimes I just have to spell it out.   Adding a favourite sentiment can be just what I need to put a finishing touch on my decoration.  I prefer the old traditional say “Merry Christmas.”
And let me take this great opportunity to wish all my followers and those who have stopped by to read my blog a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS 2015

Is It My Mind Telling Me About it, Or Did I Hear The Bell Ringing?

I went out to the Garden Centre today for coffee with a friend of mine.  I was not imagining of the Season at all.  It made my afternoon a happy one when I walked in through the main door and it all started with the Christmas glimpse of colours.

My friend and I had our coffee and some good conversation, which after that we went round to see the beauties of the Holly Season.

I thought of sharing with my readers at the Blog.  I wanted to share the beauties of Christmas that has arrived so quickly once again.  And this is for you.  “I wish you all a “Merry Christmas Preparation.”
