Christmas lights

Our Christmas tree.

Lights over the bookshelves in the hallway.
Oooh, Christmas is all about the lights. For us this is a secular holiday in the darkest month of a northern place, so we really are all about the lights and the baking. The bake element in the bottom of the oven self-destructed several days ago, so I was over at the studio all day today baking shorbread in the small oven that has not been used in years. It worked very well and the studio smells so nice and shortbready!

J. had the brilliant idea to put the small white lights around the mirror above the mantel. So beautiful!
