I started my decorating on December first, so the home is taking on a very warm atmosphere.
The Dining Room.
We've really been loving the fireplace to keep cozy and warm.
This picture really shows the ceiling beams, and the decorations on the staircase.
This is without a doubt going to be a Christmas to remember!
I also wanted to post a few of the bird photos I've managed to get. They aren't exactly great quality, but this place has proven to be a haven for wildlife. It's beyond beautiful and relaxing even in early Winter.. I can't imagine how it will be in Summer.
The Blue Jays here are plentiful, and they've really enjoyed visiting our feeders.
I've never seen so many in one place!
There's also a large population of Cardinals. They look so beautiful, especially when it snows.
This is a feeder my Dad built, and the birds go crazy over it!
You can see a Tufted Titmouse there in the entrance.
At any given moment, you can look out and see Goldfinch and Chickadees.
This little guy also frequently makes an appearance to eat the birdseed. Here he is on the roof, looking into the loft window. There's also a resident Opossum we've dubbed "Oswald", who visits the property every day in broad daylight. Sometimes, he even hangs out on the porch.
Here he is looking for the peanuts I tossed out for him.
Last, but not least, a photo of Gunther in one of his new favorite spots : in front of the fireplace!
I've never seen him as happy as he is living here! We feel the same.
