The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Christmas Present. . .

Our Family Christmas Tradition is to alternate hosting the occasion with our son and daughter~in~law.

We hosted Christmas On Crooked Creek last year. So~o~o...with that being said, "Mr. Ed" and I are doing things a bit differently here for our Season's holiday decor.

It is Christmas in

the Heart

that puts


in the air.

I adore this saying! On Crooked Creek, in keeping with a Traditional flair, has added many rustic elements into our Christmas decorating. The Traditional hues of reds and golds has changed somewhat, as well!

"The Resident Decorator" On Crooked Creek has graciously allowed the use of his p r i z e d deer sheds! I adore how this one encompasses the porcelain plague easeled for display.

This creamy ivory vase is a favorite On Crooked Creek! Through the years it has been simply used as a Traditional  arts 'de object. For this Season, and in keeping with our more rustic Christmas theme, I've filled it with pheasant feathers.

Rustic, simple, Traditional Christmas decor. . .On Crooked Creek.

On Crooked Creek is joining our gracious hostess, Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday. Marty has the most elegant vignettes in Blog Land. Be sure to visit and be inspired to create a lovely Table Top design for your own home!

Until next time. . .

Very pretty, I am going to use antlers this Christmas too-somewhere. I never thought I was an antler type of person but I am really liking all these I am seeing on the blogs.
