Twas the Night before Christmas …

QAnd all through the house, the creatures were wrapping, cooking, singing, eating, filling …. Have a little peek at our Christmas spirit—Figgy Cottage style.

Have a Very Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi Lissy I have not looked at my email in days I have been so busy with Charitmas. Just now got to Figgy Cottage. Looks fabu and love all the decorations! Beautiful!!! Your tree is gorgeous also. Thanks for sharing.
    May you and yours have a very safe healthy and prosperous New Year!

    1. Lisa, Thank you! Most of it was locally sourced. The pine cones were a special gift from my son. I am thinking about adding a little glitter to them next year—Ala Martha Stewart!
