It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Linderhof . . . greens and wreaths were purchased last weekend -- fresh greens for we love the smell of pine. A garland was placed around the front door and a big wreath on the door.
The rest of the greens were placed inside on the mantles.

While a new this year silvery tinselly tree with wee white lights holds some of our antique ornaments.
The tree this year will be a live one and we'll put it up closer to Christmas. Like we did when I was a child.
It's Friday and I'm joining Carrie at The Corson Cottage for Home for the Holidays. For we love to share Linderhof in her Christmas finery with guests.
