As many of you know, Honey and I are heading to Texas this week
 to spend Christmas with my family.  I'm soooo excited!!!  It has been a long
 time since all of my family has been together for Christmas.  Soooo...I'm taking a bit
 of a blogging break.  This will be my last post of 2011.  I will be back to see
 the new year in!  Wow...can you believe that it's nearly 2012?  Where
 does the time fly to?
*
Well dearest friends...warmest wishes to you
 and your family for a wonderfully sweet and blessed
 Christmas! I will see you soon!
*
*
Warmest Christmas Wishes!

as always, its stunningly beautiful in every shot.. What an amazing feeling it must be to walk through from room to room and see it all..
You surely have the designers eye.

Sonia said...

Oh Chari,
Your entire home is so festive! The silver in the living room is so elegant and just gorgeous! I love your tree colors of lime green and red...I think that is my favorite combination. I did the same this year and added a few things. Your dining room is so perfect for the Holidays...I've never been brave enough to paint a wall red...but I sure love it!! Your mantel looks like a Southern living picture..the lanterns, angels and evergreen swags are so pretty! Merry Christmas my friend!

Janette - The2Seasons said...

We went with mostly white and silver this year, too. I wonder what the trend will be for 2012, since the lack of traditional colors has been the rage this year. Have a wonderful holiday.

I will go back and look at the pics again!
I got your sweet card and it just made my day!

When the kids get older I plan on doing more but for now I will envy your beautiful creations! I am a new follower! Please stop by anytime! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I cannot get enough of your lovely Christmas decor. It is just beautiful! I come here when I want some good idea's. I am going to be looking for lots of silver this next year. Sonia is right! Your home should be in a magazine..A LOT!~
I mean like every month. I feel fortunate I can come here and look and not pay for a magazine. It is just exactly the kind of photo's I look for in magazines.
HUGS for all you contribute to us!

Hi, Chari. I've been so busy with the holidays that I'm just getting to your post, but truly, better late than never. I'm glad I didn't miss it! Your home looks lovely. I especially love the tiered cake plates in front of the window and the vignette on your coffee table--all silvery and white and frosty and beautiful!
