Christmas Vignettes Around the House

There are little touches of Christmas around the house. Just a little, not too much. Mostly fresh greens and flowers

I'm hoping they stay fresh one more week, but the greens are getting crispy and the paperwhites feel like, well, paper!

In the kitchen, paperwhites are outside in the flower box, and inside.

In the sunroom, a long garland rests on the ledge and little cypress trees are getting quite crispy in the urns.

In the family room, just a few branches in a tray on the coffee table are a reminder of the time of year.

And finally, the family room mantel.
These are just a few of my favorite vignettes around the house.

Mr. A finally hung the garland and lights around the front door.
It is now full-on Christmas at this house, let me tell you!

I'm joining Laurie at Bargain Hunting With Laurie for Favorite Things Saturday
I'm also linking up to Sherry at No Minimalist Here for Share the Decor.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers for Alex's safe trip home.
Because of the snow and ice in Europe, flights are being cancelled everywhere.
After hours on the phone with United in the middle of the night, I got him a flight out of Rome for Monday.
It was a miracle!

So much for dreaming of a White Christmas!
