Christmas Whispers


Around the brand new Twig homestead,
a few soft little whispers of  
Christmas
are starting to make themselves known...



Nothing grand, or dramatic




Just little peeks




of the blessed season to come.




Back to packing boxes, have a beautiful Wednesday!




Linking with Kathleen at Faded Charm

Those plaques are just lovely! I'm so itching to break out the decorations but like you I'm doing a few subtle pieces here and there. Your first Xmas in your new home - congrats!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Anne... love seeing how you are starting to get ready for the holidays.... your photos are so pretty, I just love to sit here at my computer and look closely at them... each time I look, I see something new in each one... then my imagination starts to run wild, like wondering who the little boy with the drum is, and where is that precious little rocking horse now... thanks for sharing a little "peek" at what's to come... xoxo Julie Marie

Vintage Junky said...

oh I can't wait to see how you decorate your lovely new home for Christmas. From what I have seen, that house was MADE for Christmas :)

Jan Vermillion-Thomason said...

it's been forever since i've had the time to read and/or write a post - saw yours on my side bar as i "re"posted an older post - lol - that i thought was just what we all needed as everyone waits for the photos from craig's wedding.

showed frank your new home on our way to austin about three weeks ago. He liked it:)

xxoo, jan

Meri Wiley said...

Hey Lovely Lady,

Love the star, did you make that, or find it that way? Wouldn't it be cool to have just the faintest touches of yellow, pink and orange throughout for Christmas? Whaddaya think?

Hugs,
Meri

Nancy said...

Oh I hear the whispers too! I love that last little postcard so much with the glitter. On Sunday or Monday all the tubs are coming out and the halls will be decked and then Friday we will go cut our tree. I LOVE IT!
Time to start playing Charlie Brown Christmas!

I'm always in love with your vintage displays and today's selection is no exception. I think I've fallen for the sweet bottle brush star!

Subtle Anne but good.

Alice said...

Thanks for the sweet little peeks. It takes me a while to transition from fall to Christmas--taking care not to totally ignore Thanksgiving. Right about now I get that little tingle.........but I must refrain myself otherwise hubby gets tired of it all waaaay too soon.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Anne, I haven't seen the bottle brush star before and I love it! Can you please share where I can buy some? I can't wait to see your home decorated for Christmas. I know it will be fabulous!

clustres said...

When I saw your post title, the song "Careless Whispers" (old George Michaels) kept playing in my head. That happens to me all the time--a reminder of a song gets my mind stuck. But there's nothing "careless" about these! They are beautiful and sweet!
I'm still packing and unpacking too.

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Anne,

Thanks for the pretty little glimpse.

Libbie said...

I didn't even think about you decorating your NEW home for Christmas! How fun! I aget in a rut & do everything the same way every year & now if I changed a thing I think the whole family would freak out...me included. But you with your clean slate!!! FUN! Love the little peeks!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Anne,

I loved having a peek into your gorgeous home and seeing the Christmas decorations.
The photos are beautiful and how much fun it will be having your first Christmas in the new home.

Hugs
Carolyn

June said...

So beautiful Anne! What lovely touches. I know you will love decorating your new home this year for the holidays.

I was patting myself on the back for getting the outside lights hung on the gazebos before the snow flies. But I have been looking at getting the boxes out of the loft in Dale's saddleshop of the Christmas, and I keep thinking 'tomorrow'.
hugs from the lazy one...

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

Soooo pretty! Loving the bottle brush star.

Vintage French Hen said...

Hi Anne, Love the white star, so precious! I just changed my mantel to Fall. I guess I'm behind. I am loving the little hints of Christmas I am seeing while visiting other beautiful blogs. Yours is always so nice to visit, Marcia

Jem said...

I haven't visited in a while! What lovely little Christmas touches!!

We recently moved ourselves and have had quite a stressful time of it so I really hope you've had an easier one! :-)

Nothing like the build up to Christmas!!
