Well folks the time has come. Christmas cards have been mailed, decorations are all put up, gifts have been bought and wrapped (well almost all), stretchy pants have been brought out to accommodate the indulgence of great foods, menus have been planned, my holiday family party has come and gone (and my feet paid the price) and our doors have been opened and are still being opened today to our out of town guests/family. All of the “buildup” of the last month has come to fruition. And now its time to sit back, savor, cherish and enjoy! But before I do I want to announce the lucky winner of the absolutely gorgeous Safavieh bench! Congrats goes to……


Result:  89

Hello Tina, As always I enjoy your post so much. Thank you so much for yet another giveaway! Wow! Safavieh Home is full of lovelies. I have been looking for a console table and I was drawn to the “Nakita” and “Bucknell” consoles. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Please contact me here so your gorgeous bench can be on its way!! Thank you Safavieh!

I will be taking off the next few days to celebrate this most wonderful season of Christmas with my family. I want to wish everyone a most joyous season, one that I hope will be filled with much joy, laughter, love and peace. I have a feeling 2014 is going to be a fabulous year (14 afterall if one of my lucky numbers)!

Hope your Christmas/holidays are wonderful and I personally look forward to doing a lot of cooking, eating, game playing, movie watching and reminiscing with my family (and maybe some sneaking in a little time to see what’s new and exciting in blogland)!

 From our home to yours…..a very Merry Christmas!

Don’t forget as you get busy celebrating Christmas to snap a few pictures of the festivities and enter them in my contest!

 I also want to announce the start of my final contest for 2013, “Christmas magic”. I will be collecting pictures as of today through Jan. 1st. I will hold the contest on Jan. 4-6th and announce the winner(s) on Jan 7th. As the name implies….please send your pictures of anything Christmas related, your decorated front door, a beautifully wrapped gift, a table set with your Christmas finest, your darling kids and pets are always a hit, whatever the name “Christmas magic” means to you!

Good for you Tina, how fun that you will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy everything! That is so wonderful to read, I know sometimes I get way too caught up in the preparation to the point I don’t enjoy the end result. This is a wonderful reminder for me to see!

Sending you loads of good wishes, I hope you and those you love have a simply splendid Christmas!

Tina, the picture of your dining room is gorgeous! There are so many things to appreciate about you and your blog, but the thing I love most is how positive you are, you are already proclaiming that the new year is going to be a great one–I love that! There are so many of us who would benefit from positive thoughts and feelings. I’m just thinking out loud here but maybe you would consent to an interview over at my blog after the new year. I might make it a series of interviews called “Designing Your Life” and start with you. What do you think of the title, “What Makes Tina Tick?”
