Christmas Florals And The Cutest Little Sweet Treat

My cancer recent illness has slowed me down a bit, but I've still managed to do a bit of decorating (inch by inch).  Just wanted to share a few pics:

I love the fresh cedar garland which my husband brought home with the tree.  He's a good guy!

I purchased the fresh bay leaf wreaths on Etsy. Several friends will be receiving these as gifts this season! I added the bird...

Picked lots of these tiniest tangerines from a friend's tree....They are so cute, but much to sour to eat!
Only planted one batch of paperwhites also!

Lemon leaf (Salal) wreath over my kitchen window!

Aren't these the cuttest little iced gingerbread star cookies?  They are only about 1 1/2" in diameter.  I found them at Aldi's Supermarket!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!


  1. Your inch by inch looks more like yard by yard :D
    It all looks lovely.
    I'm wishing you a very Merry Holiday and a healthy and Happy New Year!

  8. Hi Susie. You're home looks so beautiful. I really love all the natural decorations you've used. It's so pretty and peaceful. I love glitz and glitter and then I see your decorations and they are such a breath of fresh air. Love 'Em!!! I have never ever seen such tiny tangerines. I thought they were kumquats at first.

    I'm glad to see you doing better and will be saying a prayer for strength, joy and peace for you.

    Merry Christmas Sweetie. Hugs...Tracy :)

  9. You go Susie! Decorating is the best medicine for people like us. It's our drug and makes us happy. Your hubby was a good guy for bringing you that lovely garland.
    It must smell like Christmas at your house with the citrus, cookies and greens....yummy!
