“Brew me a cup for a winter’s night.
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight;
Spice it with love and stir it with care,
And I’ll toast our bright eyes,
my sweetheart fair.”
~Minna Thomas Antrim


I love winter time. Time for sweaters. And hot mugs of tea by the fire. Time for frolicking in the snow (if you have any, that is). And for cozying up with a good book. It’s also my favorite time for lights, lots and lots of them. Of the twinkling variety!

Daniel and I do not have a tree. Daniel is too lazy and I, being one who was not raised celebrating the holiday, cannot bring myself to get one. But I love my lights.

Twinkle lights on the mantle.

Twinkle lights in the pine cones….

Twinkle lights on the piano…..

Got them there…

And there….

And of course, here….

I’m hoping that with my twinkle lights, the snow will follow. One can only hope anyways.

    Oh, yes please on the snow. I love having a white Christmas! Your lights are pretty….who needs a tree to enjoy the twinkle? 🙂

    It all looks so cozy. I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing to stave off the dreary–just douse everything in pretty lights. I’m held back by the proliferation of blue ones I have that were purchased for the aluminum tree last year, but the tree is too wimpy to accommodate lights. What to do with the blue lights…

    oh, twinkly lights are great. We have some up in the boys’ room and over the window in our living room, and some in the bathroom too. I wish we had more, but am glad for the ones we do have. They are so darn happy.
    Only one week until I see you and we celebrate Christmas together! Yipee, hurrah! I can’t wait!

    Yes…one of the many positive things to marrying a man with a different faith-based background…lights at winter time. Now if I could just get mine to get his butt out there and put them up on the roof line.

    I like the snow flakes on the mantle too.
