IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

WELCOME TO OUR HOME AND WELCOME WINTER


Living Room Tree - white lights

Family Room Tree - multi-colored lights

 Snowman trees in the dining room....

My grandmother's wooden ironing board....

Our reindeer in the back yard.....

A few up close to share with you......

I just love how they sparkle at night.....


My Jim Shore collection.....

You may have heard me say that I was doing a "Less is More" this year. I have approximately 8 bins of decorations and 5 boxes of plush that I have not put out this year. I still have my miniature tree to decorate which has about 150 ornament on it! I thought Amber was going to do it but she never got around to it.

Please stop over to my post from last Christmas which will show you all that I have. I think you will find my collections to be unique and special......

Debbie I just love your Christmas decorations. You love Christmas don't you? And I can't pick which ones I like the best. Good idea to have one white light and one colored - we always have a hard time deciding! I do like the trees in the dining room. Love, sandie

OH, my,that's a LOT of decorations and all that go up have to come down. That's what I don't like. I enjoy putting them up but not so much the taking down. Everything is so lovely! Merry Christmas!

It all looks beautiful. I don't know where you find the energy for it, but if it brings you joy, isn't that what really matters?

Merry Christmas, Debby! Your trees are just beautiful as they always are. I think the family room tree is my favorite. It and the ornaments in the close ups just make me smile. :)

Debby, your decorations are beautiful! I love the way you incorporated the ironing board, too!

I decorated less, this year, as well. I left more in tubs than I displayed. I just didn't have enough time!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
