Christmas Beauty

We spent our holiday here in Chester County, bundled against the cold. A beautiful Boxing Day snowfall added to the ambience, as did the holly, evergreen and berries everywhere.


A window draped for the season...


The dining room being set up for a New Year's Day buffet...


The dining room mantel decor...


A golden deer in the drawing room...


The front door beckons...


Dog toys awaiting their owners...


Nutcrackers...


A small tree...


The library tree...


The library in festive attire...


The drawing room tree...


A hunt board aglow...


The kitchen alight with boughs...

Hope your Christmas was blessed with joy for the eye and the spirit.

Watching those needles fall,
