My niece Heidi and her husband own a VRBO in Homosassa Springs, Florida.Β I took you on a tour of the house and nearby attractions in April 2021.

In early December, I revisited the house. During the holiday season Heidi decorated a tree with tropical treasures. The tree added a pop of color and subtle light to the living room corner.




The ornaments are all tropical. . . or nautical.

Flamingo floaty with sea star



Sunglasses a must, even in winter



The Amusing Puffer fish



Even fish may need a life raft!



Peacocks popular on area farms or in back yards



A sea horse who likes lemons. . . imagine!



The precious sea turtle, amphibious




Iridescent oyster alongside pineapple



Manta Ray, a snorkeler’s dream



At Crump’s Restaurant nearby, Santa was in full sway



If you visit Homosassa, you will have a whale of a time!


The ornamental tree amuses guests at Heidi and Eric’s VRBO. It is simply an embellishment to the Christian holiday they celebrate, according to Luke 2 in New Testament Scripture as prophesied in the Old Testament:

Isaiah 7:14Β  Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel, [God is with us]


Antique Nativity ornament



How do you celebrate the season?




Merry Christmas!

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Kwanzaa!

Happy New Year!
