more christmas decorating!

Sometimes I have so much to show that I can get overwhelmed! Heres a few more pictures of some of the decorations in my living room. There are so many more pictures to show.. I'll have to save some for some other days!
I love lori mitchell dolls and I have a nice little collection of them. I wouldnt mind having some more.. there are some really cute little carolers out .. they keep telling me to buy them... I can hear them every time I see them..
I may just end up with them today.. I'm feeling a trip to brockport coming on...!
When I took this picture I hadnt yet arranged the shelve scenes yet.. I'll have to take another picture now that thats done! Dont you just love those sweet pillows?
I use greens and snowball heads through out the house. One year I must have made about 30 snowball snowman heads! I gave most away.. but I still have alot of them floating around here.These little elves inhabit my whole house.. they are all over the place.. hanging from garlands, sitting in corners.. climbing up curtains, spying on us from all over. I just wish they'd clean the house when I go to bed at night.. as sometimes I'm pretty sure they come to life with I'm sleeping! These little guys in the pictures are the ones that are on my mantel and are some of my most favorites.

Say hi to jolly old saint Nick! He is my favorite of all my santas.
Who wouldnt want to go for a reindeer ride?
So whats on everyones agendas for today? I have to clean my craft room, wrap presents and work on an elf order. The elves are done.. but they are all naked and bald! Bald, naked elves look pretty funny! I could be inspired to go do a little more shopping if someone twisted my arm..
I took a roast out to thaw.. thought that would be good with a baked potatoes! I also need to make this weeks pot of soup sometime today 9 my lunchs for the week.. though, this week at work there are three luncheons! I will still be bringing my own adn beign very careful what I eat.. need to keep losing weight! I need to walk, but its way too cold out. maybe I should go to the mall after all!
OOHHH!!! the winner of the the pinkeep .. I almost forgot to tell you! Is Nancy of Nancy's Nest . Congrats Nancy, send me your address.

One more thing.. I have been recieving the most wonderful things in the mail.. elves.. christmas dolls... tags... ornaments... I will do a huge post soon of alllllll the sweet goodies.. You'll love them all too! there is so much amazing talent out there!
ok little blogger pals.. my feeties are freezing.. time to get dressed and get busy!

Viv, your home looks so festive with all the wonderful decorations! I am SO far behind on my decorating this year. I've got to get myself in gear and get going on it before Christmas is over!

Merry Christmas Vivian. I stopped in to tell you how much I'm enjoying looking at your tag from Elizabeths Christmas Tag Swap. What could be better than Santa and crepe paper? It just sends my little mind swirling, thinking of all the wonderful childhood memories when crepe paper was a staple in holiday decorations. You put so much work in your tag with the layers of paper and all the sweet touches of trims, like the pom-pom, bell and button.

Before I go I must tell you how gorgeous your tree is. I just love your holiday spirit. I'll be following you and look forward to reading more.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Tracy Suzanne said...

Oh' yeah, I meant to ask where did you get that beautiful glittered reindeer at the top of the post. I am green with envy over that one.

Hugs...Tracy :)
