Christmas at the beach house

Over the weekend I started a little Christmas decorating at the beach house. I didn’t achieve as much as I hoped as Mr FH had an unplanned trip to the dentist, I drove 80 miles towards home and back again on Saturday for a Christmas function and we had a family dinner for our son and his new fiancé on Saturday night so things were a little hectic. I don’t have a mantel there so I used my sideboard in the dining area to make my displays on. I am very happy with the way it turned out (I took my inspiration  from ‘Dear Lillie’ – her home is to die for!!!
Now I can’t wait to get back there this weekend to finish!!
PS I didn’t light all the candles as some were wrapped in paper and as we were outside I was afraid they would catch fire while we weren’t there!

Hi Suzy,
It's me again. I just read your kind comment and wanted to answer your question about my new Christmas blog header. Would you believe I snapped that photo while I was at my nieces house? She had a bowl or ornaments sitting on her dining table and they were so cheery and bright. Do you use picmonkey? I photoshopped my pic using picmonkey's many fun options. I love spending time playing around with all the new fonts, frames and other features.

Thanks for stopping by my dear friend and for your kind words.
