Keeping It Simple

Christmas is just around the corner and I'm looking forward to it, though you probably couldn't tell if you walked into my house right now. 

We aren't having guests this year, so I'm keeping it simple—no tree, no lights, no fuss—just a few favorite things put out that make me happy, like this festive deer wearing a knitted scarf. 

I enjoy this occasional freedom from Christmas decorating. Do you put up a tree every year?

  1. Yes, because we have family that comes every Christmas Eve but haven't done as much as other years.

    1. We always get a fresh cut tree, so when no one is here for Christmas, we don't spend the money or energy on it. I'll be enjoying my daughter's tree this year.

  2. I didn't put up a tree this year, but I have a few things on display - a favorite Nativity set, my stocking and some assorted snowmen.

    I love the knit scarf on the reindeer - clever and cute, too.

    1. Sometimes it's good to keep it simple. Our daughter knitted the scarf for the deer. It was a gift from her to John.

  3. We host our children and their families each year (ours is the biggest house) so we put up a tree...but just a tree, simply decorated.
