As the big day draws near, I am happy to say that I am ready! Don't be jealous... I am also TIRED!
However, it has all been worth it. I have finished in enough time to enjoy the decorations and take in the joyous atmosphere.
At home....not at the mall!
I wanted to include in my Christmas postings a few of the little touches that add to my feeling of joy!
Come on in!
I've been decorating all month
anticipating your visit!
Not having a red door, this year
I tried to include a little color in the planters.
My signature red plaid bow
brightens the wreath
Don't forget to say hi to Santa on the way in!
His little face was so sweet,
I had to bring him home!
Once inside -
A Christmas welcome in the foyer
A well deserved close up of my little carolers
who greet my visitors
Not the real thing,
but they have been with me for years
The Living room tree sports traditional colors
and "toys" under the tree
A closeup of the hobby horse
I love the detail on this little guy
The family room tree
in the colors of the overall room
One of my favorite Christmas accents.
Sadly I've lost a few pieces
but I put it on display every year
even though I'm missing the other two Wise Men.
Maybe they didn't ask for directions ?
Sorry - I couldn't resist LOL
The mirror in the dining room
dressed for Christmas
Formal dining room tablescape
Buffet in the dining room
Kitchen Christmas tree
Probably my favorite -
A collection of Nutcrackers
guarding the kitchen
A snowman display in the mudroom
The candle holder on the left was my
first "mommy" gift - I proudly
put it out every year!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas full of the joy and blessings of the season.
A special thanks to all who have left such sweet comments of appreciation for my efforts and to those who have become followers.
I am truly touched!
