People. I LOVE Christmas….love love love it. I also love decorating for Christmas. My girls are 2 and 3 now and are finally getting what Christmas is about…My big boys still love Christmas as much as they did when they were tiny little things, and we have so much fun decorating…..
Here’s the Christmas tour:
When you walk in the door the hutch is the first thing you see. I have all my Santa dishes displayed as well as my Christmas Village. I love that village. ;)
I always wanted to go live in my mama’s village when I was little. My girls love this one too.
I love how it all looks on my hutch. I also like that open drawer… ;)
Simple Christmas centerpiece.
Everyday plates replaced with some Christmas trees found at TJ Maxx. I LOVE that place.
These cute snowmen plates were a gift from Andrew’s Meme last year….
The windowsill in my kitchen….
I love this little vignette in my entryway…..
This garland leads you into the den…Those velvet and sequined balls are a tradition in my family. My great grandmother made them first, and now my sister and I make our own. I need to share a tutorial on how to make them.
My library table all gussied up for Christmas….Here’s part of my Santa collection.
Jan Brett is my FAVORITE children’s author, and I love her version of this Christmas classic.
A plate with Silent Night, an old children’s bible, and our Guatemalan nativity share this table.
I love having a part of my girls’ heritage added to our Christmas.
An old concrete planter filled with more of my velvet Christmas balls.
Another Christmas tale and a Jingle Bell candleholder.
Another nativity and book….
I guess I coulda lit the candles in these hurricanes for the photo!
Our glorious imperfect tree filled with all kinds of homemade ornaments and things from the kids….
This is the first year that we haven’t had a mantle so I improvised and hung them on some garland hung across a double window. I love the way they look……
