Tabletop tree~Christmas touches in the Living Room

Hi Friends,
I missed you guys!! We had guests staying with us the last few days, my cousins from Canada. We had such a nice visit. 
  I always put a little tree in our living room, on this table. This year I went with a real one that I found at the supermarket for $20.


 I found this little needlepoint pillow last year at a local antique shop.

 



 Fridays tragedy hit so close to home. We're only  30 mins. from Newtown, Connecticut.
 I can't stop thinking about all the families that lost loved ones and those little angels that were taken from this world way too soon! My son's teacher lost her sister-in-law that day, she was one of the teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary. She was married and a mother of  four. Please continue to keep these families in your prayers, they need our prayers more then ever!

It all looks so beautiful Martina - and just love your little tree!
Here in Montreal we have restricted use of semi automatics - it looks like they're is going to be a complete ban on them after Friday's debacle.
Big hugs - and Merry Christmas to you

Your living room looks magical Martina. I can just imagine snow falling outside the window behind your darling tree. Wonderful touches of Christmas in your room!
I am so sorry for the loss your son's teacher has endured. We are all praying for those who were lost and their grieving families.
