The Sitting Room by Firelight

So, I thought I'd show you the Christmas decor in the sitting room by firelight, but it didn't turn out quite like I'd imagined.

I don't know whether to blame it on the camera or the photographer...(although I am almost positive it's the lack of my skills behind the camera.)

I haven't been feeling well and therefore unmotivated to shoot these pics all over again after I found how they'd turn out once I got them uploaded.

But, hopefully, you can see past the grainy, hazy pictures and see what I was trying to convey..

..quiet Christmas beauty, using mostly things I have out year around and embellished with Christmasy accouterments.

I will probably take more again in the daylight..along with pics of the rest of the house..see ya soon!
I am linking up with The House In the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday, and Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday

There's more, much more, to Christmas Than candlelight and cheer; It's the spirit of sweet friendship That brightens all year. It's thoughtfulness and kindness, It's hope reborn again, For peace, for understanding, And for goodwill to men!
