Christmas is Over and the New Year Begins!!!!

Decorations at Antler Hill Village, Biltmore Estate,  Asheville, NC --12/13/18
Happy New Year, my Friends.... Hope all of you have had a wonderful holiday season ---and are anxiously waiting 2019.    For me,  after a year learning to live with A Fib (and the side effects) --I hope that 2019 will be a BETTER year....  It hasn't been easy (as most of you know) for an energetic, busy person like me  having to learn that life can be just as exciting and joyful  even if I have had to slow down considerably!!!!

I have decided to show more pictures from our Christmas Trip to BILTMORE on Dec. 13, 2018.   That was such an amazing evening  ---and definitely a highlight of Christmas for us.   I have two sets to share.  One is from our magical walk around the Antler Village Area,  which is something we have never done during Christmas before...  We both were SO impressed --and since it was a cold evening and since there was still snow on the ground,  that made it even more magical....

The other set features my pictures of  some of the Hearth and Fireplace Decorations in the house... I don't have a mantel now --but I've always loved mantel decorations...  I remember my mother's pretty mantel decorations when I was young.  

Hope you  enjoy one last post from our wonderful Christmas At Biltmore experience...








This entire fireplace is so gorgeous.






Called the Chimney Room at Biltmore;   Isn't it unique???




This was a very interesting mantel,  don't you think?



Walking around the Grounds at the Antler Hill Village was so special!












I think this was my favorite mantel/fireplace display.






Happy New Year!!!



This picture of us was taken on 12/24/18 in our Living Room.   We are here to say to each of you:   HAPPY NEW YEAR.   May 2019 bring you lots of happiness and good health!!!!

Hugs,
