It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

I have been slow about decorating this year and have decided to do a lot less then I usually do.  I had planned to participate in some of the blog parties and share my tabletops and our "bookcase mantle" but I was not able to get the decorating done and pictures taken.
I thought it would be fun to share just a few pictures from our living room.
I love bottle brush trees but did not bring all of my collection out this year, I chose to use the white trees.
This table was moved to our entryway to make room for the Christmas tree so I set my trees and pastel houses up here.

When I took the pictures we had not yet decorated our tree, you can see it in the background.  With the help of some of our grandsons our tree is now fully decorated. 

On our "mantle is our "Once Upon A Midnight Clear" village.

I made a little edging with old organ music sheetsThe paper is old and fragile.

The Prince Of Peace

To us a Child of hope is born,
To us a Son is given;
Him shall the tribes of earth obey,
Him, all the hosts of Heaven.

His name shall be the Prince of Peace,
Forevermore adored'
The Wonderful, the Counselor,
The great and mighty Lord.

His power, increasing, still shall spread;
His reign no end shall know'
Justice shall guard His throne above,
And peace abound below.

To us a Child of hope is born,
To us a Son is given;
The Wonderful, the Counselor,
The might Lord of Heaven.
