Sweet Sunday Scripture.........

Christmas is slowly showing up 
a little at a time here at the Sumner's......

A little sparkle on the mantle......

 I added some old vintage lace doilies to the garland of greenery and burlap...

 I just love the simple look of these burlap stockings.....

 Some old ice skates on the banister......

A few red berries to add some color.....

  A Happy little wooden snowman.....

Christmas is a time of celebration.....
A time of joy and hope....
A time to add a little sparkle and color.....
A little simplicity....
A little happy......
A time given for the young and old....
A time to Celebrate!

All for one reason.......


Celebrate the Reason for the Season...

2 Corinthians 9:15  
Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

Christmas Blessings!



  1. Hi Patty! Your decorations are beautiful! I am loving the burlap and ice skates! Purposing to take time and reflect upon the true reason of the season, JESUS!

    Stop by and see me sometime..

  2. Hi Patty, Your Christmas mantel looks beautiful! I love a natural looking mantel myself! The burlap stockings are adorable...I would be drawn to them! But what grabbed my attention is the stairs, banister and floors!! Beautiful!! LOVe the color and detail.....Blessings~~~Roxie

  3. Amen to that! Loved the tour.. Soooo pretty!! I am gradually putting out some Christmas pretties.. for some reason, I am very slow this year :) I enjoyed seeing your beautiful decorations - the mantle (love!), ice skates, old doily and burlap.. all just perfect. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Patty!

  4. Hello Patty! Thank you so much for the lovely visit to my blog and the kind comment - I truly appreciate it :) I am now happily following your blog and I am excited to visit often...you have a beautiful site!

    May you enjoy this wonderful Christmas season. Blessings and hugs!

  5. Oh how pretty!
    Everything looks so festive...I love it.
    You have a joyful and inviting home.
    (did you paint the stencil on the floor?)
    Just have to ask...it looks pretty.

  6. Hi Patty, What lovely decorations you have. Seems like burlap is the thing to decorate with, I like the touch of the vintage doilies. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. Blessings to you and yours this Christmas season. ~ Abby

  7. Yes the season is all about Jesus. I have my eyes and heart on Him! Love everything that goes with this wonderful time of the year. Your house looks wonderful

  8. Patty, I love your mantle. So pretty. Have a Blessed day.

  9. It is all so cute! I love the mantle, but I think the skates are my favorite. They look so cute hanging on the banister with red berries tucked in. Such a creative idea!

  10. I am a big fan of you and your posts. Love the stockings. I so wanted some, but can't sew and can't afford from those who do:) Etsy is just a bit steep for me. The skates are so cutie patootie! Great idea to add the doilies to the garland. The star, the greatest reminder of WHO we should follow and what Christmas is all about.

    Merry Christmas, if I don't visit again before:)

  11. Hi Patty, your home is beautifully decorated for the season. Love your mantle and the skates on the staircase banister is a great look! Yes, let us remember the reason for the season.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  12. Your mantel is beautiful, I love the simple decor. Your stair rail decor is very pretty too!

  13. Amen! Beautiful post and photos! Merry Christmas!
