at night in my castle

It has taken me a bit longer than usual to feel the warmth of the season. It was really always there I just had to open my eyes and quit looking down.

It also helps that I actually turned up the heat instead of struggling to keep the woodstoves going. We have one in each end of the house and keeping up with them is a full time job. 

Turning up the thermostat equals Christmas spirit? Who knew?

That wallpaper is fo real. Vintage 1988.

I think there is a mantle/ fireplace in each living space in this house.   Recently Molly and I heard a bat caught in one of the chimneys.  We freaked out for a bit then out of nowhere we became brave. We never found the bat but assured ourselves it isn’t in the fireplace. (Because we checked 1,000,000,000 times.) And PS Molly is 9 and much braver than her mother.

This picture is terrible and it’s too bad I am lazy to retake it because this is my favorite mantle. We have had the bubble lights for many years, they always bring warmth to decorating. 

Sending happy holiday wishes your way!

Your home is beautiful and really looks pretty with all of the lights on! I love the doll house in your fireplace! I have one on my wish list! Think I should write a letter to Santa? Happy holidays my friend! Give all of those kids an extra hug for me!
