These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

Every year I step back during the hustle and bustle of the season and I determine what makes my list of Favorite things for that season. Last year I shared some of them through an album on my facebook page. I decided to share those with you due to some of them still ranking as my favorite things. I have added this years favorite things in as well. So grab that favorite coffee or Latte and  scroll away!

 This cathedral illuminated reminds me of the true reason for the season!
This has several of my favorite things.. I love the Santa's White Christmas Coffee you see in the pic along with my french press! I also love my cabinet that sits in the background!

We baked over 30 pans of homemade cinnamon rolls for gifts! This is one of my favorite things to do.. Give something baked to others. I love to give more than to receive!

This was one of my table settings for Christmas day! I had over 23 people!! I love Southern living at home... I have the retired Gallery collection so this was what I used for my tablescapes for Christmas!
Hot Cocoa! Can't have Christmas without it, according to my daughter!
I love my birdhouse! I always have a candle sitting on this side table during Christmas! I love Frosted Cranberry from Bath and Body Works! All time favorite scent for Christmas!
Now for this years added favorite things! Here we go keep scrolling down!
I am in love with my new kitchen remodel! You can see the transformation here. I have to say this is one of my favorite things this season. Baking in my new kitchen!

I was blessed with a new to me, ten seat dining table this year. You can read all about this amazing blessing here.
 I am so excited with my new table this holiday season!

I love my fireplace! I went with white and gold décor this season and I am loving the new look!

Here is my hallway vignette for Christmas this year. I love passing by and looking at my little wooden church that sits on this shelf! I keep in mind Jesus is the whole reason for this season.
I made mention of my fireplace above.. I purposely separated these two even though it sits on my fireplace mantle this season. My manger scene!


  Oh, how I love this very special reminder of how Christmas started. I am reminded of what the scriptures say of this very special night.

 Luke 2:6-16.

 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.


And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and viewing some of my favorite things!
