A Twilight Tour

The fleeting minutes of twilight are my favorite time of day.

In those few bewitching moments, the sun dips below the horizon and the world just seems to dance and glitter.

And the magic and wonder of Christmas is just even more breathtaking!

 Can I just say how very glad I am that I took these pictures last week before a leak necessitated taking our main Christmas tree down?  On December 11.  *boo hoo hoo hoo*  Worst of all?  Not one.single.thing has even been started on the repair.  Not one iota of work.  I have come to terms with the fact that the tree is not going back up this year and just hope that we aren't ringing in 2014 with a hole in the ceiling.




Now, back to the good stuff...

SO happy you did a twilight tour again this year - just lovely! And so sorry to hear about your leak! I saw that on IG & hoped everything would be fixed & put back together. :-/

Just lovely! I really enjoyed seeing the Twilight Tour. Sorry to hear about the leak. What a bummer!

Pamela said...

Love, love, love your home. The twilight photos are lovely and I'm so sad that your ceiling has not been repaired. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. At least you have some other trees to enjoy.

I agree twilight is simply magical at Christmas.

Sorry to hear about the leak. Thankfully Santa had his pick of trees to visit at the W residence;)

I just adore looking through pictures of your home! Fabulous job on decor!

Love the quote at the end! In fact, it's the very quote on our Christmas cards this year! I enjoy your blog ever so much! Merry Christmas and a jolly ol' Ho! Ho! Ho!

Hi there! Just found you from Hometalk. It's nice to meet local bloggers. I'm less than an hour north of ATL. I thoroughly enjoyed going through your before and after home tour. Your home is simply gorgeous and truly exhibits that sweet Georgia charm! Meet your new follower! :-)

Maggie and Sheepie said...

So sorry about the leak. We just finished dealing with that (and having to stay in a hotel for a MONTH while the repairs were being made)!

Katie said...

Oh, that stinks about the leak! At least you have lovely pictures! It is so cozy, and I just love everything you have in your home.

Carrie said...

Loved taking the twilight tour! So sorry about the leak:(

Beaufort Belle said...

Your "Christmas home" is stunning during the day and absolutely magical at night with all the twinkling lights. You have done an amazing job yet again!

May I ask where you found your nativity in the dining room? My nativity is very large and I am looking for one about your size.

Also, the wonderful golden deer on your kitchen table. Do you remember where your found him?

Don't fret about the leak. I hate that you aren't about to use your main tree, but I know the littles are still having the best Christmas in your wonderful home. Everything you and honey do make it wonderful for them!

A continued blessed Christmas holiday to you!

Dixie Delights said...

Thank you :-). The nativity was from a pop up mall Christmas shop in Savannah eons ago. I still love it!

Shenita @ Embellishments by SLR said...

Beautiful, Amanda! Sorry to hear about the leak! But, I have learned this year that Christmas is what you make it...lol! You'll definitely remember this one!! I know we will!

Jayaitch said...

Your house is indeed beautiful. Could I ask where you find the candles for your Ballard sconces in your living room? I have those sconces and have a hard time finding candles with a small enough diameter to fit.
thank you. Merry Xmas!

Dixie Delights said...

Thank you! I got them at Hobby Lobby. First ones I tried - didn't know it might be hard :-)

Karrie said...

Your house looks awesome (as usual!).... Say, is that leak under your favorite blue bathroom? If so, maybe it's time for that remodel! hee hee! Merry Christmas to you and your family! Love your blog!

Dotti said...

Darling,
You captured "L'heure bleu" perfectly! Everything looks gorgeous.
Love,, Marme

Amanda--Would you mind sharing where you found the small mirrors above the boys' beds? I just adore them and would love to put one in my son's room.
Thanks so much!

Julie - They were from One Fish Two Fish in Savannah last summer. You can probably call them to see if they still carry! Amanda

I have been following - aka - stalking your blog for several months and I'm in love with your sweet family! I think your home is my very favorite in blog-land. It is sophisticated, elegant and homey all in one!

I absolutely adore how you dress your boys and make every day and occasion a celebration. It reminds me of when I was a young mother and raising my own three boys. I tried to make a big deal about everything too - from b'days, little holidays and even First Reconciliation (Catholic here too). I hs'd my guys k-12 and they're all grown now and graduated from college, but I still try to make every day special. A sweet Sister (a nun) once told me to celebrate every day because it was a gift and that's why it was called "the present".

Thank you for sharing your home with all of us!

Merry Christmas!
