only one week 'til...


Are you ready? I am! Shopping and wrapping done, gifts for loved ones out-of-state shipped, house decorated, cards mailed out (I only do about a dozen these days), food for Christmas Eve guests purchased, made some Christmas cookies today.

I am wishing you a Christmas filled with love and peace, good health, and loved ones by your side. 💓


  1. Merry Christmas Melanie!
    Your home certainly fits the name of your blog, "COMFY HOUSE".
    I love your mantel, it's prefect and your home looks so comfortable and inviting.
    Wishing you a season filled with love and great joy.
    Connie :)

  2. You take such pretty home photos. I enjoy seeing your treasures displayed.
    I’ve still got a few things to do

  3. Hi Melanie! Your home looks lovely (as always). I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  4. Your house looks absolutely lovely - I love the mantel. Merry Christmas!

  5. All looks merry and bright dear Mel - and I hope so much you are well (this coming from someone who is sick and just can’t get over the darned bug - which I wouldn’t wish on anyone!). I see your ornament in honor of Phil - so nice.
    A happy Christmas and may 2024 be a better year. 🎄♥️

  6. So cozy and festive.

  7. Your mantel is beautiful. Have a good week as we slide on down to the big day. Hugs. Kris

  8. Each area in your home is lovely, Melanie! And to think that you didn't even begin decorating until after Thanksgiving Day. I'm so impressed that you are all ready for Christmas, give me another month, please. It's wonderful that you have your beautiful white cabinet in the kitchen this year as it's certainly a showstopper for Christmas. I do love those two darling tea cups that are winking!
    A wonderful Christmas to you and Brian,

  9. Thank you for the Christmas wishes and the same to you.
    How wonderful to have everything all done and ready to enjoy the season. I so enjoyed seeing all the special touches you added to your home. It all looks so pretty. I especially like the shot of your colored tree with the beautiful mantel in the background.

  10. Hello! I so enjoyed visiting your lovely home all ready for Christmas! I am almost there, although the wrapping is taunting me! Have a cozy evening, and a blessed Christmas.

  11. Your home is so lovely. I am so grateful for you. I hope you and Brian have a lovely Christmas. 😘❤️
