Sunday Sketches and Getting into the Holiday Spirit....I love this time of year!!!!







Hi Everyone!!!!

What a wonderful week it has been and what a super fun filled weekend....We finished all of our lights outside and enjoyed light up night this past Thursday....and Saturday night we listened to Christmas music, ate treats and started decorating in our home....
I am all about adding my favorite new colour to the scene this year...this lime celadon green just makes me so happy.....and I always love white and black....so this year I had so much fun with my additional green decorations.....

I even had my special Holiday oil burning that smells like candy canes...it was warm cozy and amazing.....so this week for my Sunday Sketches I have Christmas trees as inspired by our decorating and fun!

I hope you pop by Sophia's blog for Sunday Sketches and see what all of our friends have been up to ....

Happy Sunday and Happy Creating!!!!

Hugs
Diana

Diana, you can't be finished decorating already! I feel like I'm behind now! Your home looks lovely though, thanks for the tour and love you Xmas tree sketches! I'm trying to get started on my Xmas cards actually.

Love your drawings!!!
I'm not religious even though I'm of Catholic origins (my mother is a teologist), so I don't decorate for Christmas and don't celebrate christian holidays. I usually celebrate Natural times of the year. On Decembre 21st I'll light a candle to celebrate the Winter Solstice, the rebirth of life. :)
You house looks great!!!

Your house looks lovely! Is that an original Da Vinci on the wall? I often wondered if the one in the Louvre was a fake!
