a little bit of Christmas

Today is a cold and gray day and I decided it was a good day to cut some
pine, fir and cedar to put in the old milk can by the front door.
I also added some red dogwood sticks that I had cut the other day.

I did up my planter with greenery too but it will stay in the garage where it's
colder for another week.  We are going to have some warmer days again.

This is an old enamalware teapot that I put a foam oasis in and added some
real greenery and faux berries.

I have some friends that already have their Christmas trees up!

I think I'll wait another couple weeks to do that.

However, I hope to start decorating the living and dining rooms next week.

I absolutely love the scent of this candle!  Even hubby and son noticed it
and commented on the nice Christmas smell in the house.

Have you started to add a little bit of Christmas to your home yet?

Did you notice I changed my blog header?  I hope it's not too early to
put up a seasonal Christmas one.  I do love celebrating this beautiful season!

Thank you to all of you who follow me and leave a comment.
I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you and I love
and appreciate each one of you!

Blessings to you,



  1. Hi Pamela, I have just found your blog on Aiken Home & Gardens. Your photos are all so colorful. Very pretty! I'll enjoy following ~

  2. Hi Pamela, I just found you from Savvy Southern Style I love the arrangement in the enamel pot. All your photos look great. Thanks, Helen

  3. Oh I feel as if we need a little Christmas so this looks wonderful to me. This reminds me that I have to do some tipping soon because I don't like snow to come before I've done that. Perhaps my daughter will allow me to cut some more on her cedar tree. The arrangements are so pretty and the one in the enamel pot is sweet. Wasn't it brisk today? I'll be glad if we get back to the warmer temps of the past week.

  4. Hi Pamela,

    Your Christmas decor looks great!
    Your new header is very nice too...
    I changed mine too might as well the season comes in so quickly and once you start it is hard to stop...
    All the Best,

  5. Your header is so pretty! I'll have to look for one of those candle decorations - my mum has a pair and they just say 'Christmas is here' when I see them. Your arrangement is lovely and has inspired me to think about what I'll do at the front door.

  6. Looks so pretty and I can almost smell that candle!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  7. Your header looks very pretty! I'm about ready to put away the fall decor and bring out the Christmas things. Your decor is looking great! I love to bring in cedar, etc and use around the house, too. I love the smell of cedar, it makes me think Christmas! Have fun decorating!

  8. It's beginning to look like Christmas!

  9. Dear Pamela,
    Thank you for all the time and effort you put into making such a beautiful blog....I wish I had more time for blogs, but when I do take the time, I always love visiting are doing an amazing job!
    Love the new header also.
    No, it is not too early. I was hoping to decorate the library for Christmas today but we were far too busy with patrons...soon though!
    Can't wait!
    Happy decorating!

  10. I noticed your new header, it is lovely! I haven't started my Christmas decor, but I have started thinking and planning. That's all for now, I will wait another week or so, my hubby doesn't care for it being around too soon. He doesn't love Christmas the way I do at all, in fact he could pass it by completely and it wouldn't bother him. As much as I love it, I find it be a very lonely holiday. My heart goes out to those who celebrate completely alone. My son and dil with their kids love it and they make it fun and happy.
    Hugs, Cindy

  11. Well it snowed here today so I have been gathering branches and boughs for my outdoors window boxes that I decorate every year. I figure that I will start there and work my way inside. I would not worry about your header though looks lovely. I do think I can imagine the smell of that candle though! I think I will find myself some Christmas scented candles too!

  12. Looks fantastic Pamela. Love the teapot with the cedar. I too have started putting more Christmas around my house. Some stuff I start putting up but am not completely satisfied so I wait a day and see what it needs. Love the season! Your Christmas header looks wonderful. Diane

  13. I am visiting you again.
    Such beautiful displays!I have enjoyed the early Christmas decorations in your post! Your white old enamel teapot with the green leaves is lovely! The scent from your red candle must be hanging in your room!
    Here in Nara Japan, the best time to see autumn leaves will next last...I can not wait.
    Have a fabulous week.
    Red Rose.

  14. Gorgeous centerpiece, Pamela. I just love enamelware. I have collected some, and keep admiring it everywhere I go!! I'm hoping to get some decorations up this week too!

  15. I haven't officially started yet, but am making mental plans! Love your milk can with the evergreens and berries - combined with the candle - perfect!
    Hope you have a great week,

  16. Hello Pamela
    The new header is festive. Canada might lag behind in many things but we do decorate early for Christmas.
    I have started, pulled out all the winter decor of snowflakes, snowmen and penguins etc. The tree is an artificial table top silver tinsel and will be put in the living room soon.

  17. Love the new header. I plan to start decorating later on this week. I never start with the tree. Always other things I put around the house. Love everything Christmas!


  18. Hi Pamela! Oh, I love your Christmasy header and so gald you like my little Froggie!
    Hope you had a great weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  19. Yes, I noticed your new header, its fun, love this time of Year. Your milk can looks wonderful all decorated, Have a great week.

  20. I'm not that stoked about the holiday season, as of yet, anyway... but I'll get there! Last year, my parents had been doing some clearing behind their farm & I made it just in time to snag some pine branches & cones... made my house smell oh, so good! That's what I need to do this weekend, that'll give me the fix I need to get started this year =)

  21. Looking good are quite artistic with your Christmas creations! Photos are great...I haven't been doing much bloggin as I can't seem to get inspired....

  22. A perfect touch of nature and Christmas. I can almost smell the candle from here ;)
