Peace and Wonder

Wishing you all a little *Peace* this weekend...
 and hoping that the hustle and bustle doesn't overwhelm you...
 but instead,  fills you with the true *Wonder* of the season.
  I've been a little more careful in my decorating this year. Everything has to be
done with a kitty in mind :-) It's almost like having a toddler (or two) again...
except this little guy can jump...very high!
I'm sharing a few Friday Pretties with you though,
and you can still enter my giveaway here
Blessings to all of you,


  1. Hi Marcia,

  3. Hi my friend! such a beatiful pictures!! WOW! Love your nativity scene.. And thank you for reminding me taking time to slow down! :)

    Do you know what i want for Christmas? I want to write (and talk) English very well!! So i can write good comments to you ;) Its not so easy for me, writing exactly what i want to write! :)

    Have a nice weekend! thanks for making me smile when you leave comments on my blog! Make me feel happy! :)


  4. I love your white with touches of red! So pretty. Your nativity is lovely too!

  5. Hi Marcia,
    I just love your soft, pretty Christmas decor. I know what you mean about the kitties. Mine are now one and three, so they don't pay much attention to the tree and other decor. LOL!
    Beautiful post. Just love the "peace" on the glass jar.


  6. Your decorations are so beautiful, Marcia. You are truly talented!
    I remember our cat's first Christmas. She was a very small kitten and climbed up the trunk of the Christmas tree and rang the little bell ornaments. It was so cute to see this tiny little gray paw sticking out of the tree. :)
    Hope you have a peaceful weekend as well. (hugs)♥

  7. It is 'wonder'ful to remember why Christ was born!
    I love your red and white bells tree, its so very pretty!
    Wishing you all a peaceful weekend with Kitty too!
    Hugs Christine

  8. How beautiful...I need to take a photography class from some of you...the pictures are just wonderful and so peaceful!

  9. I just love how you decorate! Your pictures certainly did make me feel peaceful!!! Beautiful!

  10. All of your christmas decorations look so pretty. Kittens are mischevious, but at least they're CUTE! ;-)
    I wish you all the same for this holiday season, Marcia.
    Jo :)

  11. Very nice and oh so peaceful. You too, have a nice, peaceful weekend.

  12. Beautiful pictures!! I had to be careful as well, my big boy kitty likes to chew at each anything with string, tinsel, greenery.....ugh! Things were hung high! :)

  13. Your blog never ceases to amaze me how pretty it is. I have been playing around with a template here at blogspot, but I must be the Dummy of the Year!

  14. So pretty and peaceful with just a punch of red- AND a candy cane for a perfect pop of energy to mark one more thing off that Christmas list! LOVE it!

  15. Everything is sooo lovely! What a warm and cozy home you have!

    I am looking for peace this weekend...staying away from the craziness of the season. Hope you can do the same my friend.

    Hugs. xoxo

  16. I love those signs that have peace on them.........very lovely.......can't wait to get some decorating done myself. You blessed me!

    Blessings, Linda

  17. May the warmth and beauty flows from your pictures.

    We had cats years ago, that loved to play with the ornaments on the tree, and broke several.

    Now we only have Molly, and she is to lazy to care. HaHa

  18. It's lovely, Marcia! I think the bell tree is really cool! But my favorite is the nativity. Always.

  19. I love that bell tree. And the nativitiy. And, in fact, EVERYTHING in this post!! Yes, I want it all!!!!


  20. What lovely Christmas pictures...really beautiful!

  21. A charming post, yes, our pets can get into things. I love your nativity.

  22. Dear Marcia, thank you for stopping by! A kitty - that is the sweetest thing in the world! We have a tomcat - he's grown up now, but he's the most loving and tender creature, and we're so fond of him, even if he breaks an ornament or two by wanting to play with them! Have fun - and peace! xx

  23. Marcia,
    Your Christmas decorations look so pretty! Hope you have a great weekend!
    Christmas Blessings,

  24. I know what you mean about the decorating. I've got 2 senior dachshunds who don't care about the decorations except for the presents under the tree. They like the paper and bows, so that's all we have to worry about with them. I also have had a chihuahua for a year. Last year she was too little and small to get into anything, but I feared what she'd do this year so "baby proofed" everything. To my surprise, she hadn't been phased by the decorating at all.

    Still good for your kitty's health that you take precautions.

    I like your white reindeer and the nativity.

    Thanks so much for vising my blog and enjoying the Christmas cottage tutorial.

  25. Marcia,
    Hey girl, long time no hear from you, and shame on me for not dropping by sooner. I was checking out what I have missed out on with you.

    I think the red and white jingel bells are soooo! cute.

    One of my words as well, "PEACE" to you dear one!

    We still have to meet up soon.
    Peace, Joy, Love...

  26. I'm so jealous that you got your nativity people so cheaply. What a complete bargain!

    I'd love a set lie this. I'll have to keep my eye out for one.


  27. Hi Marcia,
    I love your decorating, it is all so very pretty!!! Beautiful photos of your home! We have had a kitty or two (years ago) that have tipped over our Christmas trees!! They are so cute and mischievious as kittens! :)

    Have a happy weekend!

    xoxo Gloria

  28. Hi Marcia,
    Your decorations are so beautiful! I hope you have had a 'peaceful' weekend. Blessings. :)

  29. LOL! That so true having to worry about the jumping and climbing with a kitty! Your Christmas decorations look really pretty. Love the bell tree!


  30. There are definitely some pretties here! Love your little gift bag. Mimi

  31. Hi Marcia....and I whole heartily agree with you...peace and wonder are two perfect words for Advent...

  32. For years now, we have stayed away from shopping and being caught up in the commercial side of Christmas. We concentrate on the coziness of a decorated home. Your decorations are wonderful! I just love the jingle bell tree. Did you make it?

    Sending peace back to you my friend!

    Hugs from Holland ~

  33. Marcia,
    A white and red theme is a perfect way to decorate for the season. Your decor reminds me of the beautiful candy cane story.

    Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas

  34. Everything looks wonderful, Marcia! And that is a lovely Nativity scene- it's so beautiful.


Thanks so much for stopping by :)
