Pine cones are so beautiful! A variety of beautiful craft-creations can be made with them. Today, I’ve featured beautiful candles with pine cones. If you don’t have pine trees in your yard, you may find them at your local parks or even scattered on the lawns of local businesses. I have done so and simply ask the manager or owner for permission to collect them, first. Earlier this week, I had the chance to collect more pine cones from a local park and one of the staff, an elderly gentlemen, volunteered to collect pine cones stating that it’s enjoyable AND relieves the pain of arthritis in his knees! What a great mindset he has & I told him so. If you intend to collect pine cones, be sure to
My goal was to get this published on 3/25/2017. However, it’s actually a few hours beyond 3/25 into 3/26. In keeping with my ’25th’ theme, I plan to post on the 25th of each month and perhaps the 5th and 15th, as well. Thank-you for following this blog! I am delighted that so many follow it and while I believe in my ‘It’s Ever Christmas’ dream I’m AMAZED that you all are ‘here’ in it with me as I build it into reality! Again, thank-you so much!
After I saw the gorgeous living room’s photograph (above) on Pinterest, I discovered the article that the living room photo is part of, ‘House Tour: Ken Fulk Creates A Montana Guesthouse That’s The Ultimate Winter Getaway’. The article contains a collection of gorgeous photographs that the three photos (on display here) are part of. Each photo displays Christmas Decor Styling that is simple, ‘quiet’ and perfectly styled by Ken Fulk. My favorite of these gorgeous photos is the living room/den. This room’s staging/styling makes it ‘feel’ so inviting for me because of the glowing fireplace, the super-plush garland, the twinkling Christmas tree viewed in front of the beautiful windows with snowy view of more evergreens and the comfy-looking chairs a body can sink into!
When I see Christmas trees that are decorated with exquisite ornaments and other gorgeous items, I think of the great talents and skills of the artisans/designers/manufacturer. Because the ornaments are so exquisite their beauty reflects the excellence intended, with the design. Of course, such intentional excellence and beauty causes me to think of Christ of Christmas, the Giver of the talents and skills, and His excellence and beauty for all people.
I’ve included a large image of the exquisite French Blue and Linen ornaments collection, thinking you all would love to see how gorgeous they are up-close! If you click on the image of the Christmas tree, you’ll see a larger clickable view of it, too!
I think these beautiful ornaments look like glass, and the style of design seems antique, yet modern, too. These ornaments are lit from within, as well, which enhances their beauty. They have their own ‘sparkle of light’ from within. This sparkle of light within makes me think of Christ and how He is the ‘Light of the World’ and the ‘sparkle of light’ within all who believe in Him. I think a lot of Christmas Decor succeeds in one way, or another, in prompting thoughts of Christ and what He came to Earth to be to each person.
The decor in this stately room is minimal, and cute. My favorite decor items in this display are the three whimsical pieces, the checkerboard-styled deer and the large ornaments on the mantle, as well as the red pine cones, the stockings, wreath and multi-patterned chair.
This dining table setting has a soothing ambiance due, I think, to the deer’s grand antler-rack as candelabra, the beautiful, plump, blue-green Christmas tree and its glowing lights, the smaller deer and its antlers, the gorgeous plates, the assortment of bling-y candles and the stemware. So, yes, that’s pretty-much everything in the photo!
The decor of this dining table scene looks perfect for the cabin theme. My favorites in this room are the antlers chandelier, the plaid deer, the trees, the furry placemats and the chairs! chairs
I thought it would be neat to feature this quietly-gorgeous room with it’s richly-masculine feel and appearance. The fireplace is the focal point of this photograph and everything about it is really nice! My favorites are the combination of the reindeer, candles and simple, yet handsome garland.
The Tinker Bell-like fairy, featured in this video, does a ‘magical’ job of illuminating this property’s home and landscape. Her ‘Christmas Decor Styling’ with the lights is really beautiful!
As you look at this assortment of gorgeous ornaments in ecru, white, silver, gold and other colors, I think you’ll agree with me that their appearance speaks for them and tells why I chose to post them here. The design and artistry of the ornaments is a part of what makes the overall ambiance so heavenly!
The combination of gold, silver and heavenly teal as the primary colors on this Christmas tree make it so gorgeous! These ornaments are of the Donatella Ornament 2015 Collection at Frontgate. In addition to the beautiful ornaments, I love how the gorgeous tree’s ornamentation is reflected in
the window-like mirror.
As you peruse this collection of exquisite ornaments in teal, turquoise, ecru, pewter and other colors, I believe that you all will agree with me that their appearance speaks for them and tells why I chose to share them, here.

Each of the mantles pictured above are quite beautiful. The choice of colors and ornaments create a truly luxe atmosphere in each space! Santa is enjoying the luxe atmosphere at his fireplace, too.
This Christmas tree’s decor is abundant and gorgeous! It’s really delightful when a Christmas tree is beautiful from each viewpoint/all sides, particularly the ones placed in front of windows. Consequently, it’s exquisite when viewed from outdoors and indoors!
The ambiance created by the beautiful Christmas tree decor, lovely table setting and furnishings gives me the impression that family and guests would feel a sense of bliss as they eat and talk to each other!
This bedrooms furniture. bed linens, drapes and other furnishings are beautifully complimented by the custom tree, pine cone wreath, pear-like window lights and vintage crystal ornaments on the crystal chandelier. I would set my lights via a timer so that I could enjoy their glow and twinkling for 15 to 20 minutes after getting into bed!

The beauty of the Christmas decor on the tree and mantle compliments the furniture immediately surrounding it, as well as the wall’s finish and the beautiful rug on the floor. Also, the Christmas tree and garland are perfectly matched and the gorgeous garland compliments the picture frame and sconces.
Turquoise and chartreuse are two of my favorite colors and the luxe, bling-y designs of the Christmas ornaments are enhanced by these rich colors! I’d love to see the tree that’s decorated with these gorgeous turquoise and chartreuse ornaments.
The jewel-hued, Spanish Fiesta-hued ornaments and ribbons on this tree are as beautiful to look at as the traditional red, green, white, silver and gold ornament themes! This tree’s Fiesta theme is one of my favorites!
I like the whimsical charm of the Christmas decor on this tree. Also, I appreciate the beauty of the ruby_red-kelly_green-taupe-mint-peach-white plaid chairs, taupe tufted ottoman, ruby-red pillow and the ruby-red ‘M’ monogrammed, mint throw blanket! I’d certainly feel welcome amid this inviting, welcoming Christmas decor as I sit fire-side!
This tree and gorgeous table setting are presented so elegantly in this heavenly conservatory. The one thing that would make the entire view enchantingly romantic is twinkling lights throughout the trees that are visible through the conservatory’s pretty windows!
The totally cute Christmas tree featured in the tots’ bedroom (in the picture above) looks ‘just-right’ for little ones. Children enjoy the beauty, joy and excitement of Christmas decor so much! So, naturally, we want them to be able to enjoy Christmas decor in their rooms, and not have to wait until they are in the living/family room or another room to enjoy it. Consequently, when selecting Christmas decor for a child’s room choose age-appropriate Christmas decor preferably with:
Following those tips, and others you know of, as you decorate your spaces and rooms will help the children enjoy the beauty, joy and excitement of Christmas decor, safely.
This is an EXQUISITE fireplace scene! The luxe ornaments, ribbon, candle-stands, mirror, sconces, picture frames, fire-screen and chairs in this silver-platinum & pewter color-scheme together make this sitting area so luxurious and welcoming! The decor is balanced rather than overdone! I would enjoy sitting, here, beside the fire with a book and magazines to read, while sipping tea or hot cocoa, and enjoying a few gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! Furthermore, I think my guests would enjoy sitting here amid this exquisite, blissful ambiance.

This home’s view from the front facade’s landing through the front door, to/through the foyer and up the stairs is soooooo gorgeous and blissfully welcoming, that I’d use this one entrance when coming home as often as I reasonably could, so I could experience this bliss every time!
These three gorgeous Christmas trees have their ornamentation accented with beautiful ribbon in complimentary, coordinated patterns and colors. Each tree is an attractive example of a unique style for different rooms of your home, restaurant, center, office and/or other spaces!

Today, I am featuring trees decorated in what I’m calling a Victorian-ish style. Each one is very lovely via its own luxe ornaments, accents, accessories, placement and other staging! In my imagination I can ‘see’ these gorgeous trees in the rooms of a beautiful chateau. In addition to the trees, I like the ‘NOEL’ and stockings display on the mantle of the fireplace and those gorgeous Palladian windows! As always, enjoy!

Hello, Everyone! It’s August, a beautiful month with a royal name. As I write this post, I can see my gorgeous, evergreen Christmas wreath with beautiful ornaments and battery-operated lights, hanging on my office wall, just beyond my desk. I’ve kept it up, beyond December, the traditional season for such decor. Why do I have this evergreen wreath up, year-round, beyond December? I keep this evergreen wreath up because I enjoy focusing on the bliss of Christmas, year-round!
Yes, the traditional Christmas season is months away, yet many of us carry the Spirit of Christmas with us every day! Our daily lives have the presence of that uplifting, soothing ambiance because of Christ’s Spirit being with us. We have Emmanuel with us. (He’s also identified as the ‘God’, the ‘Universe’ & the ‘Creator’ of the universe, including humans.). Of course, having the Spirit of Christmas each day means we are kind and charitable at home, at work, in business, as we shop, as we run errands, as we dine out and in all other interactions daily, and every month. Consequently, living this way brings great joy to others and ourselves!
As in the traditional season/month of December, placing a beautifully-decorated Christmas tree or other evergreens such as a wreath or garland, on display, is a symbol of His ‘evergreen’, ever-present Spirit. This is why ‘Christmas All Year, It’s Ever Christmas’ resonates with so many people. We are enjoying ‘The Gift’ of Christ’s Spirit, all year, far over and beyond the delightful gifts we receive and give to each other. So, if you all have some form of Christmas decor displayed so that you (and others) can see it and enjoy it all year, we are kindred spirits in this!
Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.
Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord’s plan.
So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near,
from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year!.”
as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year,
when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely,
and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave,
and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. .”
