Merry Christmas!

Now if you want to know who I am in awe of you have to go over and visit with Laurie at Bargain Hunting (and chatting) with Laurie, she has the most wonderful decorating skills. Her collection is almost all vintage and I love it! There isn't an inch of her house that isn't decorated. Please go over and visit, you will not be disappointed.

This is all so beautiful! I love it all, but the Snowbaby holding a puppy like yours caught my eye! Yaaayyyy for snowman toes!!!!!

Mara said...

I've got one little angel up! And of course my Christmas cards, but that's it! I didn't feel like a tree this year, since I am hardly here.

Yours looks spectacular though.

Mary said...

I'm going to have to show FES the picture of your tree: when we got about half of the ornaments on the tree, he said he didn't think there was room for any more!
Everything looks so beautiful, even your snowman toes! :D

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Debby I want to come to your house!!! I so needed a dash of Christmas Spirit and you just did it for me!!! I've been told that my homemade gifts aren't good enough for a family member I should use the money they sent for the boys to buy them a gift in return. Who the heck says stuff like that .... UGH ok sorry had to vent lol.

LOVE LOVE your santa toes!!! I'm so going to see if I can paint my toes like that! I wonder if I can find someone open tomorrow?

You're Christmas everything just makes me smile and brings a huge warm over my soul!

Sonya said...

It looks great! I just love your tree!

xinex said...

I love all your christmas decor, Debby, Your tree and ornaments are so pretty. Your tablescape is awesome, you should post for Tablescape Thursdays. The little chairs are so cute and you used them so creatively. Merry Christmas and blessings for the coming New Year!...Christine

heavenisabookstore said...

Wow it is so pretty. Your tree is awesome! But do you have room to live for the holidays or do you have to not use certain tables until after?

Technodoll said...

First, I can't believe you even decorated your TOES - Debby that's so over the top that I love you for it :-D

Second, your snowglobe collection is to die for. LOVE it.

Third... uh... I don't have any words for your trees and ornament collections, my jaw hit the floor and is quite bruised.

Holy! Mother! Of! Jesus!

(and that's a compliment)

Wishing you and yours the very sweetest Christmas, may love, health, peace and happiness wrap you up in a big ol'hug!

ps: may you get lots of fun gifts toooo!

betty said...

Your Christmas displays are absolutely breathtaking. It truly is a wonderland! Thanks for sharing with all of us out here in Bloggyland and hope you have a perfectly marvelous Christmas with your loved ones!!!

Sonya said...

wow your decorations are amazing!!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Wow! What a task it must be putting all those ornaments on the tree and all those decorations out. But it sure looks like it's worth it ... and I imagine it's even more beautiful in real life.

Wishing you and yours a very blessed Christmas!


You really have the most lovely tree I've ever seen. It's kind of sad when it's all put away, isn't it, even though I usually can't wait to get my house back in order!

Little Penpen said...

I just found this post... no wonder you hated to take your tree down. It is beautiful... jam packed with all kinds of goodies. That's the old fashioned look that I love.... these people who change their trees every year with a different "theme" just don't have the memories like we do!!!
