How wintry is your weather?

We chose to put the tree up in our family room. I absolutely love the big bay windows. This room came with individual window screen blinds. You can catch a glimpse of them at the top of the windows. We will be taking them completely out soon. I can't stand them. The house was always shown with the blinds down and I think it made the room look dark and smaller. I purchased these au natural taupe cafe type curtains. They are not too sheer and let in just the right amount of light for me. The room looks soooo much better now. At first, I didn't care for this room. The previous owners had a lot of furniture in it and it felt so claustrophobic to me. The walls are a chocolate brown with off white molding and baseboards. The ceiling is a lighter brown. We have about half as much furniture in this room than there was and I love this room now.

In yesterday's post, I shared my pre-holiday coffee bar. I love this little butler pantry area just off the kitchen and dining room. Let's add a little Christmas cheer.
A little Christmas mouse all snug in his stocking is waiting for the electric kettle to sing. To the left of the COFFEE signs is a coffee grinder (my husband likes to grind his coffee beans). To the right of the kettle is a little metal basket with two small canning jars - one with instant coffee and one with sugar.
