The other night, as I was walking across the back deck, I glanced into the back of the house and thought "how cozy".
I simplified the Christmas decor this year, so I was a little worried that I wasn't "Christmasy" enough.
Instead of using a lot of little items, I simply used larger decorations and fewer of them.
I think lights make the biggest impact. They contrast with the darkness of the winter evening.
The front of the house got a photo at night, too.
The Christmas tree on the front porch is covered with rustic ornaments that will hold up well outside.
Thanks for peeking through the window with me.
